Stuttgart received an excellence cluster funding for
cross-disciplinary research on architectural design, including AI and
robotics approaches (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__icd.uni-2Dstuttgart.de_-3Fp-3D24111&d=DwICaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rStC00sfV_qVWqlcnmGhKrRoTMim5rLso-FTzVW2NfNyo&m=ChM4tEcJxOK3EddouwHz1FusrYNM6MlBu7BhH2qfHxA&s=ucbjKyZC3etZsA02k60ceQTfvbT6iDB65bkGm6uVdoc&e=). The
challenge is fascinating: Apply AI and robotics methods to optimize
and control construction processes as well as rethink architectural

We seek new team members for specific projects that bridge between
AI/robotics planning & control methods (e.g., my LGP) and their
application for construction and design. The supposed outcome is to
actually see real-world robots construct designs similar to those that
Achim Menges worked on previously:

Applicants should be highly motivated by this application in
architectural design, and be highly skilled in AI/robotics coding and
planning methods.

I am looking for people joining my team, or people that are interested
in a joint appointment with teams of my direct collaborators in the
concrete projects:

Prof Achim Menges (Architectural Design)
Prof Oliver Sawodny (System Dynamics & Control)
Prof Daniel Weiskopf (Visual Analytics)

To apply, please reply briefly to this Email:

* Do NOT send me a CV. Do NOT attach anything.

* If you apply for a postdoc, provide links to your 3 best papers, as
   well as to your google scholar page or similar.

* If you apply for a PhD, provide 3 links to papers or reports you
   have written so far, e.g. your BSc and MSc theses or even
   peer-reviewed publications.

* Optionally, also provide a link to github or similar.

In the first screening round I'll mostly look at these papers only. In
a second round I might get back to you for more information.

Please contact me if you have any further questions.
