The Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany, is among the
oldest mining universities in the world. Having run a research mine for
decades, the university now seeks to establish an interdisciplinary
research program in Smart Mining. A particular focus is the use of
robots in Smart Mining, from robotic 3d mine mapping and material
handling in underground mines to questions of teleoperation/telepresence
and human-machine-interaction with (semi-)autonomous mining robots.
Position offered: full time, starting April 2014 or later, until
December 31, 2016.
Salary ("TVL-13") follows state regulations and is determined according
to prior employment history. Yearly salary in "level 1" group (no work
record) is about 40,000 Euros, at "level 3" that is more typical for
postdocs around 49,000 Euros (before taxes and mandatory health and
social security plans).
The successful candidate will have a double affiliation at the Institute
for Informatics (with teaching/tutor duties in computer science courses)
and a Research Task Force directly reporting to the University's
Vice-Rectorate for Structural Development.
Required qualifications are a M.Sc. in Computer Science or equivalent, a
completed PhD is a plus. Prior experiences in robotics are necessary, as
well as the willingness to work in highly interdisciplinary teams.
