PostDoc position in Berlin, Germany

A postdoc position is available with the MTI-engAge research group at department of control systems at Technische 
Universitaet Berlin, Germany.
The research group investigates approaches to make robots useful for technically less skilled parts of society, but also 
considers the social roles of robots as part of their interdisciplinary agenda.

We are looking for a motivated addition to our team who will work on perception and behavior generation for a range of 
robots in our Lab, with the goal of leveraging the body motion of the human interaction partners for synchronization and 
sequencing of interactions, and for detecting misunderstandings or changes of mind in order to recover interactions 
We welcome a strong background in reactive and multimodal robot perception and/or learning of motion primitives, as we 
do work experience with real robots.
Interest in interdisciplinary collaboration (especially with Sociology) will be considered favorably too.

The job requires excellent programming skills in Python and C++ and experience with ROS.
Knowledge of SoftBanks Choreographer, ROS stacks for perception and motion generation, and machine learning methods are 
welcome too and will be acknowledged accordingly in the assessment.

We offer the candidate a position with considerable freedom in pursuing original research ideas and the possibility to 
acquire experience in coordinating scientific staff.
We expect the candidate to be able to drive research on his/her own and to actively collaborate with group members and 
We also expect the person to actively help in securing future funding.

The position is fully funded for two years at a gross salary of 3.832EUR/month (TVL-E14, 100%), starting from October 
2017. We explicitly encourage female candidates to apply and will prefer them for comparably strong applications.
