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.

Application deadline: Feb. 28, 2014. Please send your inquiries and/or 
applications to Prof. Bernhard Jung, jung at tu-freiberg.de
