Lecturer and research Position (Akademische/r Assistent/in) in Neuro-Robotics

The position is available at Chemnitz University of Technology in the
Department of Computer Science within the Professorship of Artificial
Intelligence. It requires teaching and research. Teaching is required
about 4 hours per week within the semester and involves lectures and
exercises in robotics and neuro-robotics as well as exercises in
artificial intelligence or image processing.

The candidate is expected to contribute to research in neuro-robotics,
e.g. to develop brain inspired models of motor or cognitive processes
run on robotic platforms. He or she should have a PhD in computer
science or related fields, e.g. electrical engineering. Prior
experience in robotics or neuro-computational modeling is
advantageous. Good English language skills are necessary. German is
initially not required, but the candidate should have an interest to
learn the German language.

We offer a stimulating international and interdisciplinary
environment. Available and recently ordered robotic platforms include
an iCub head, two Nao, a Koala with stereo pan-tilt vision and several
K-Junior V2 robots.

The salary is according to German standards (E 13 TV-L or A 13). The
position is initially for 4 years, but can be extended. The starting
date is April 2014 or earlier.

Chemnitz is the third-largest city of the state of Saxony and close to
scenic mountains. Major cities nearby are Leipzig and Dresden with a
rich tradition of music and culture.
