Lecturer and research Position (Akademische/r Assistent/in) in Neuro-Robotics

The position is available at Chemnitz University of Technology in the Department of Computer Science within the Professorship of Artificial Intelligence. It requires teaching and research. Teaching is required about 4 hours per week within the semester and involves lectures and exercises in robotics and neuro-robotics as well as exercises in artificial intelligence or image processing.

The candidate is expected to contribute to research in neuro-robotics, e.g. to develop brain inspired models of motor or cognitive processes run on robotic platforms. He or she should have a PhD in computer science or related fields, e.g. electrical engineering. Prior experience in robotics or neuro-computational modeling is advantageous. Good English language skills are necessary. German is initially not required, but the candidate should have an interest to learn the German language.

We offer a stimulating international and interdisciplinary environment. Available and recently ordered robotic platforms include an iCub head, two Nao, a Koala with stereo pan-tilt vision and several K-Junior V2 robots.
