PhD positions / postdoc position in Swarm Intelligence and Robotics
Two funded positions for PhD students or a postdoc are available at the University of Paderborn, Germany. It's our ambition that both positions start on April 1st, 2015. Both positions are initially limited for two years and are full time positions. There is the option of an extension by additional two years.
For both positions the task is to participate in the development of the technical implementation of “bio-hybrid robot systems” within the interdisciplinary EU-funded project “flora robotica“. The project integrates contributions from computer science, engineering, botany, and architecture. The project's objective is to develop and investigate symbiotic relationships between robots and biological plants. In particular, we focus on the development of control algorithms for decentralized robot systems with methods from the field of swarm intelligence and supported by a mathematical modeling approach of the overall system (growth models, effects of self-organization etc.)
Besides a Master's degree (optionally also a PhD) and common knowledge of computer science, good knowledge of robot programming as well as good knowledge of mathematical modeling and simulations are required. Additional required qualifications are the appreciation of autonomous, creative work and a good ability to work in an international and interdisciplinary team.
