Dear colleagues,

for the SOCRATES (SOcial Cognitive Robotic Agents in The European Society, www.socrates-project.eu<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.socrates-2Dproject.eu&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=XfEpROPaYIHgOPKxYoX4p6_BFsbyWBT2mRC23Elrkro&s=IICzbb7MlblEObt67UOrmfCv9TGsiiWh9OptggjkbWs&e= >) Marie Curie project, we are searching for an outstanding, highly motivated and ambitious post graduate to join our team in the area of adaptive hardware design.

Your will work on further developing the modular hardware of our robotic home assistant Care-O-bot (www.care-o-bot.de<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.care-2Do-2Dbot.de&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=XfEpROPaYIHgOPKxYoX4p6_BFsbyWBT2mRC23Elrkro&s=Oly2C3smom7z1Wn0TVyXo06Kac__h7VgJSEEeDWWWGk&e= >) in order to make it suited for new application areas. One specific focus will the development of solutions for the safe interaction of the robot with the user.

You will be supported to work towards a PhD which will be awarded by Fraunhofer IPA in cooperation with Stuttgart University.

Your should have completed your degree in mechanical design, electronics or mechatronics and have strong skills in designing complex technical solutions with attractive appearance. Furthermore you should have significant construction experience in Solid Works or similar CAD programs.

Fraunhofer is Europe's largest application-oriented research organization. Therefore, we actively work on transferring technologies and applications developed on Care-O-bot to new products and solutions: from production and logistics to public environments, care facilities and private homes.

Fraunhofer is regarded as one of the most attractive employers in Germany.
