The CoR-Lab - Research Institute for Cognition and Robotics - at 
Bielefeld University invites applications for
several PhD/Postdoc positions in robotics, process modeling, simulation 
technology and intelligent automation.
The positions are linked to the German leading edge Cluster "Intelligent 
Technical Systems" [1] and
to a new graduate school in "Working Conditions in Industry 4.0" and 
will be co-supervised
by Prof. J. Steil (Cognitive Robotics) and Dr. S. Wrede (Cognitive 
Systems Engineering).

The successful candidates will have a master degree in engineering, 
robotics, computer science, automation technology or related fields and

- be highly motivated to collaborate with industrial partners,

- have excellent programming skills,

- have the capacity to work in an interdisciplinary team and environment,

- profiency in German is beneficial, willingness to learn German essential.

We seek to fill positions with different profiles

(A) robotics and simulation technology for safe interactive co-workers

(emphasis computer science/robotics)

(B) interaction technology and user interfaces for intelligent automation

(emphasis human-machine interaction, pc-based automation, cyber-physical 

(C) process modeling for assistive interaction technology in 
manufacturing and robotics

(emphasis computer science, process modeling, software engineering)

For further information please contact Dr. S. Wrede 
(swrede at cor-lab.uni-bielefeld.de 
<mailto:swrede at cor-lab.uni-bielefeld.de>). Applications are invited 
until the 30th of October and will be processed as they are received. 
Interviews will be scheduled via Skype or F2F, Prof. Steil is also 
available at ICDL from 14-16.10.

The positions are embedded in the CoR-Lab [2] and CITEC [3] institutes 
at Bielefeld University [4]. CoR-Lab and CITEC-Lab provide a unique 
environment to perform cutting-edge research in the area of cognitive 
and intelligent systems, spanning more than 40 PIs with their research 
groups in at least five disciplines (Computer Science/Robotics, 
Linguistics, Psychology, Biology and Sport Science) at Bielefeld 
University. Applicants for a postdoc position will have the opportunity 
to perform independent research.

Applications from suitably qualified handicapped and severely 
handicapped persons are expressly encouraged. Bielefeld University has 
received a number of awards for its achievements in the provision of 
equal opportunity and has been recognized as a family friendly 
university. We welcomes applications from women. This is particularly 
true with regard both to academic and technical posts as well as 
positions in Information Technology and trades and crafts. Applications 
are handled according to the provisions of the state equal opportunity 

Applications should be sent by email to 
sekretariat at cor-lab.uni-bielefeld.de 
<mailto:sekretariat at cor-lab.uni-bielefeld.de>, preferably as *one* PDF 
document including a CV, motivation letter, publication record (if 
applicable), record of teaching activities (if applicable) and any other 
relevant information. The application should highlight the expertise in 
the areas mentioned above and express the specific research interests of 
the applicant. The formal advert can be found at
