  *Senior Software Architect / Post-Doc in Robotics (full time)*

» About us:

Technische Universität München (TUM) is one of Europe’s top
universities. It is committed to excellence in research and teaching,
interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young
scientists. The university also forges strong links with companies and
scientific institutions across the world.

At TUM’s Department of Informatics, chair of Robotics and Embedded
Systems (Prof. Knoll), we participate in the EU-H2020-funded project
RobMoSys (Composable Models and Software for Robotics
Systems-of-Systems, 2016-2020). The project will coordinate the robotics
community’s best and consorted effort to build an open and sustainable,
agile and multi-domain European robotics software ecosystem. RobMoSys
envisions an integration approach built on-top-of, or rather around, the
current code-centric robotic platforms, by means of the systematic
application of model-driven methods and tools that explicitly focus on
system-of-system integration. Within the project we are looking at the
earliest date possible for an experienced Senior Software Architect /
Post-Doc in Robotics

» Key responsibilities:

  • Carrying out research activities in the field of software
    engineering for robotics
  • Carrying out project related work including work package related
    tasks and reporting
  • Dissemination of project results in leading journals and conference
    in the robotics community
  • Active involvement in the open call management to ensure the most
    performant experiments in order to achieve better tools, better
    (functional) software, and better software models within RobMoSys
  • Active involvement in proposal management (i.e., highlighting
    potential opportunities, helping to form consortia and assistance in
    proposal writing)

» Requirements:

  • Ph.D. or similar experience in a subject which is relevant to the
    direction of the project such as robotics, autonomous systems,
    computer science, mathematics, engineering or a related field
  • Very good knowledge of robotics, mathematics, software engineering,
    and model-based development
  • Experience in developing robotics software, e.g.,
    kinematics/dynamics, control of actuators/sensors, world models,
    ontologies, distributed systems
  • Proficiency in C, C++, and Java; experience with Eclipse EMF, ROS,
    Linux, Orocos
  • Fluency in spoken and written English, German is a plus
  • Willingness to travel
  • High motivation and willingness to work in an international and
    interdisciplinary team

» What we offer:

  • A responsible position with interesting and challenging tasks in an
    interdisciplinary scientific and management team
  • Worldwide networking opportunities with leading robotics experts
  • The opportunity to actively design the scientific scope of the
    European robotics software ecosystem and the research directions
    covered (in strong alignment with the scientific foci of RobMoSys)
  • The opportunity to grow the role and the responsibility through the
    development of new project opportunities
  • Remuneration in line with the current German public service salary
    scale TV-L, level E13

by the 30th of November 2016 will receive full consideration.

TUM has been pursuing the strategic goal of substantially increasing the
diversity of its staff. As an equal opportunity and affirmative action
employer, TUM explicitly encourages nominations of and applications from
women as well as from all others who would bring additional diversity
dimensions to the university’s research and teaching strategies.
Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the
same qualifications. International candidates are highly encouraged to
