At TUM’s Department of Informatics, chair of Robotics and Embedded 
Systems (Prof. Alois Knoll) we are taking applications for a 2 years 
post-doc position in robotics in the context of a EU-H2020-funded 
project RobMoSys. (Composable Models and Software for Robotics 
Systems-of-Systems). 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 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. See: *www.robmosys.eu*

*About us:*

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

*Key responsibilities:*

·Carry out research activities in the field of software engineering for 

·Coordinate 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

·Proposal management (i.e., highlighting potential opportunities, 
helping to form consortia and assistance in proposal writing)


·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, 
Orocos, Linux

·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
