Senior researcher in Computer Vision for Robotics at Technical 
University Braunschweig

The Institute for Robotics and Process Control (IRP) at the Technical 
University Braunschweig
offers a senior researcher post from 01.02.2017 in computer 
vision/vision for robotics
for initially three years, renewable upon evaluation for up to six years.

The successful candidate owns a postdoc in computer vision or robotics 
or a closely related
field. She/he is expected to develop and pursue an independent research 
agenda with the
goal to qualify for a research career. She/he will conduct independent 
teaching in computer
vision, lead the image processing lab, attract third-party funding,
and thereby contribute to the success of the overall instituteunder its 
new head Prof. J. Steil.

Required qualifications include a PhD degree related to computer vision, 
practical experience
in at least one of the fields of robot vision, 2D- or 3D image 
understanding, 3D-reconstruction,
visual learning, neural models of visual learning, deep learning for 
vision, and good programming
skills. A publication record in international journals and top tier 
conferences is expected, as well
as first experience in teaching and proficiency in English. The 
institute supports the acquisition
of German language, if necessary. Extended knowledge and experience in 
machine learning,
  software engineering, robotic applications, or human-machine 
interaction is an advantage.

The successful candidate is intrinsically motivated and enjoys working 
in an international team.
She/he wants to qualify for a career towards research and develops a 
respective qualification profile,
a German habilitation can be pursued. The IRP institute andits new head 
Prof. J. Steilprovide support
through a strong research environment, excellent equipment, base funding 
and projects in humanoid
robotics, soft robotics, human-robot interaction and industrial
