The Robotics and Biology Laboratory at the TU Berlin has an opening for a PhD/Post-Doc.

The position is about applying techniques from machine learning, with a focus on deep and recurrent neural networks, to robotics.  You will also be involved in a large AI initiative that integrates about 20 researchers from different disciplines.  

You should have a track record of excellence in research, a computer science/robotics background, a solid education in math, excellent programming and software engineering skills.  Desirable experience: work with real robots, especially in manipulation and grasping; planning and/or control; designing soft robot hands and soft sensors; experimental design and user studies; research at the intersection of psychology, cognitive science, and robotics. You must be proficient in English. Speaking a little bit of German may be fun but is definitely not required.

You will receive a competitive compensation, a stimulating, supportive, and well-equipped research environment, great international colleagues, opportunities to interact with many excellent European universities in the context of this EU project, and can experience one of the most exciting cities in the world.
