Research Scientist - Highly Automated Driving
The KIT has long been regarded as a leading center for highly automated driving. The Research Group of Applied Technical Cognitive Systems at the Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB) at the KIT is concerned with the technologies of applied machine intelligence. Based on fundamental research, new systems such as autonomous service robots, autonomous vehicles or assistance systems with cognitive capabilities are to be realized. The use of these so-called technical-cognitive systems takes place primarily in the context of highly automated, efficient and inter-modal mobility.
Who We Are Looking For
In order to strengthen our interdisciplinary team, we are looking for graduates (diploma or master) in computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, mechanical engineering or related fields with excellent academic records to fill several full-time positions.
We expect interest in interdisciplinary scientific work, self-motivation and teamwork for active and independent cooperation in research projects and teaching. Very good language skills in either German or English are required.
What We Can Offer
We offer a first-class environment with diverse, interesting research topics and projects for an accompanying PhD thesis. Due to the close cooperation with the Research Center for Information Technology (FZI) and various research and industry partners we can provide an ideal framework for researching innovative ideas, implementing them in a laboratory environment, testing them and then applying them in practice.
Besides bright minds in the field, we have access both to highly developed software stacks as well as modern hardware. Several research vehicles, as well as complex simulators are available to evaluate and validate systems. In addition we test directly on the unique "Test Area for Autonomous Driving Baden-Wuerttemberg" in real-world road traffic.
The salary is based on the labor agreement of the public service (TV-L) in group E13.
The KIT is an equal opportunities employer and therefore welcomes applications from women. In case of suitability, severely handicapped applicants will be preferred.
Please do not hesitate to contact us by email or phone. Applications with the usual documents should preferably be sent by email to the address below.
