The Institute of Automatic Control Engineering, Technische Universtät München, is seeking

   Research Assistants/wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter with opportunity for dissertation

for the EU IP project BEAMING. The goal of this project is to instantaneously transport people (visitors) from one physical place in
the world to another so that they can interact with local people there. At TUM this is achieved by embodying the visitor at the destination site
by using a physical robot that can be controlled remotely and by providing visual, auditory, and haptic cues at the local site.

For this project, we are employing an ambitious young researcher with interest in the areas of intention recognition from multimodal data streams as well as haptic human-robot interaction.

This challenging project requires a team of excellent researchers with strong disciplinary background and a strong interest to work in an interdisciplinary environment. A strong capacity for teamwork is indispensable. Advanced programming skills and experience (C/C++, etc.) are an asset.

The positions are fully paid according to German rules (13 TV-L). Requirements are a successful degree (master/diploma) with excellent
records. Please send your application including your complete CV, relevant certificates, and some of your publications by Email to
office at lsr.ei.tum.de  with the Keyword "PosBEAMING". TUM is especially encouraging minorities and women to apply, because of its strong
commitment to diversity in engineering education, research, and practice.
