The Autonomous Intelligent System Group, Institute for Software
Technology, Graz University of Technology, is seeking

a Research Assistant/wissenschaftlichen Mitarbeiter with the opportunity
for dissertation for

the GUARD (Guaranteeing Service Robot Dependability During the Entire
Life Cycle)  project

The aim of the project is to develop methods based on model-based
testing and diagnosis to improve the reliability of service robots in
industrial environments. The 3-year project is funded by the Austrian
Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and will be carried out in close
cooperation with the Robotics startup Incubed IT
(http://www.incubedit.com/). The focus of the project lies on the
modeling of individual transport robots as well as a fleet and its
embedding in an automated warehouse, the development of automated
testing and diagnosis capabilities based on these models and a seamless
integration of the methods in the entire development, deploy and
operation process.

The successful candidate will work with the autonomous intelligent
system group which conducts research on AI-based Robotics with a strong
focus on robustness and dependability. The results of the research will
be deployed practically in an industrial use case.

For the project we are seeking a motivated and talented young researcher
with a strong background in the following areas: Robotics, computer
science, AI, or software engineering. Advanced programming skills in
C/C++ and experience with ROS or diagnosis and testing are a plus.

If you are interested in the position, please send your application
including CV, academic transcript, relevant certificates, and
publication list, 2 reference contacts and other supporting materials
such as reference letters (if available) in a single pdf file by email
to Gerald Steinbauer <mailto:steinbauer at ist.tugraz.at>
steinbauer at ist.tugraz.at. We expect to fill the position by April 1st
