Postdoc in Robotics at Technical University of Munich

Technical University of Munich, Germany is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a postdoc position in artificial intelligence. This fellowship is last for two years and posible to extend. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

We are looking for a Post-Doc in Robotics/Software Engineering who will work on modeling and implementing a software architecture for a generalised robotic framework. The candidate will join our team at the Chair of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Embedded Systems ( at Technical University of Munich (TUM). Your work will mainly focus in the context of the H2020 project RobMoSys ( We aim to develop a meta-level robotics framework, that will build on top of current code-centric robotic platforms by applying model-driven methods and tools. This will ena-ble the management of interfaces between different robotics-related domains in an efficient and systematic way according to each system's needs. Thus, modules within the framework can be easily configured to interact with each other in a guaranteed manner, regardless of manufacturer.

You will be involved in the design of our software architecture towards a generalized world and perception model and work on its implementation in a consulting and/or supervising position, in conjunction with internal and external teams.

The initial position is limited to two years and may be extended based on your performance.

Key responsibilities:

- Working independently on at least one European funded project, including implementing research tasks in conjunction with other European research agencies

- Carrying out research activities towards a generalized software architecture for robotic platforms

- Involvement in the consulting and supervision of third party R&D projects

- Presentation of project results in leading journals, conferences and other events

- Participation in third party funding acquisition (European and/or national level)


- Applicants must have earned a PhD in in Robotics, Computer Science, Math or other robotics- and/or software engineering-related discipline prior to position start date

- Understanding of the high-level robotic concepts, especially perception, world modelling and task plan-ning

- Detailed understanding of robotic software architectures and modelling tools, such as UML

- Sound programming experience (preferably C++, Java and/or Python)

- Hands on experience with established robotic software frameworks, libraries and tools (ROS MoveIt!, OpenCV, PCL) is helpful

- Fluency in spoken and written English, German is an advantage

- High motivation and willingness to work in an international and interdisciplinary team

What we offer:

- Worldwide networking opportunities with leading robotics experts

- Opportunities to attend project meetings in various international locations

- The opportunity to grow your role and responsibilities through the development of new project opportuni-ties

- The possibility to bring in own ideas for new research projects and follow them in case of successful fund-ing acquisition

- Remuneration in line with the current German public service salary scale TV-L, level E13


Please send your complete application documents online to Dr. Adam Schmidt ( including at least two references. The vacant position will be filled at the earliest possible date.

TUM has been pursuing the strategic goal of substantially increasing the diversity of its staff. As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, TUM explicitly encourages nominations of and applications from women as well as from all others who would bring additional diversity dimensions to the university's research and teaching strategies. Preference will be given to disabled candidates with essentially the same qualifications. International candidates are highly encouraged to apply.
