The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA, located in Stuttgart - Germany, is offering a Ph.D. scholarship funded by a major industrial customer in the area of Software Engineering for Robotics and Automation.

The activities funded by the scholarship will further expand the results demonstrated during a successful first project with the customer, and will investigate software architectures for reconfigurable manufacturing lines for the automotive industry. The scholarship is initially offered for 3 years, to be extended upon satisfactory performance as a full-time employee position at the customer company.

The ideal candidate has, or is about to obtain, a Master's degree in Computer Science, Engineering disciplines, or Mathematics / Physics with Informatics specialization. There are no specific nationality or language requirements for this position, besides good command of written and spoken English. However, given the tight cooperation with the customer's staff and the longer-term employment perspective, proficiency with the Japanese language and/or affinity with the Japanese culture constitute preferential qualifications.

This is an excellent opportunity to work in a high-profile project, within a joint team of more than 10 scientists and engineers dedicated to transferring the concepts of Industry 4.0 to real, production-grade settings in the customer's plants throughout the world.

The position is expected to be filled by April or soon thereafter, and applications can be submitted to mirko.bordignon at ipa.fraunhofer.de<mailto:mirko.bordignon at ipa.fraunhofer.de> .

My best regards,
Dr. Mirko Bordignon
