Doctoral Candidate / Early Stage Researcher position

As a research associate at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence, you will develop systems for knowledge representation and automated knowledge acquisition, which combine the human ability of understanding language, perceiving objects and learning from experience. In particular, intelligent robots are to be endowed with the capability of autonomously acquiring knowledge in order to robustly act in human environments and competently and successfully achieve human-scale everyday tasks.

In particular, your challenges comprise the following:

   * the development and implementation of probabilistic models and algorithms for learning and reasoning in complex
     scenarios of intelligent service robots,
   * the creation and maintenance of documentation, scientific publications, and the presentation of research results at
     top-tier international conferences,
   * self-organized and ambitious work both individually and in a team of researchers,
   * the authoring of research grant proposals.


   * Successfully completed Master's degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science with a major in Artificial
     Intelligence/Machine Learning,
   * very good skills in Machine Learning and Data Mining; esp. experience with probabilistic graphical models (Bayesian
     networks/Markov random fields/Markov logic networks) and related formalisms,
   * very good programming skills in the Python/Cython/C/C++ programming languages and respective libraries for scientific
     computing (numpy/scipy/sympy),
   * experience in natural-language understanding and semantic modeling is helpful.

Besides the eagerness and ability to quickly dive into new and complex research scenarios and topics, we expect organizational skills, the ability to work in a team and high commitment and dedication to your research. Very good skills of the English language is required, German is helpful.

Research associate with the Institute for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Bremen, Germany,
