We encourage active participation in the academic community and our researchers regularly collaborate with world-class public research groups. We also regularly publish in top tier venues of the mentioned research fields, and release open source code and datasets for public use, such as our Proxy Virtual Worlds dataset and our local feature extractor R2D2.

We are currently inviting applications from candidates who are excited about contributing to the invention and development of new methods and applications in the field of AI for Robotics.

The ideal candidate has multiple years of experience in robotics research on fundamental and applied topics. He/she is motivated to be part of a growing team of researchers shaping the future of AI for Robotics and is able to contribute both to hands-on research and strategic planning of future directions.



Required skills

- PhD in robotics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or computer science
- A solid background in robotics (5+ year of experience)
- Publication record in the field of robotics (e.g. ICRA, IROS, RSS)
- A solid understanding of deep learning and differential programming, and experience with related frameworks (e.g. Pytorch or Tensorflow)
- Experience in software development, especially robotics related (e.g. Python, C++, ROS)
- Experience in working with simulation environments
- Ability to implement research ideas in a complete robotic stack, evaluate them empirically, and iterate on them.

Preferred skills

- Hands-on experience in robot manipulation (e.g. kinematics and dynamics, path planning, control software components, dynamic simulation) and/or robot navigation
- Experience with model-driven architectures / development
- Experience with service-oriented architectures.
