Position: Researcher (f/m/d) - Environment Perception and Simulation for Robotics
Institution: OFFIS e.V
Location: Oldenburg, Niedersachsen, Germany
Duties: In your research work in this project, you develop state-of-the-art computer vision methods in the areas of semantic mapping, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM), 3D reconstruction, and object recognition. The goal of the project is to derive a viable simulation environment automatically from robot sensor data, e.g. RGBD cameras and possible manipulation data, with minimal human intervention. All necessary physical attributes of objects to facilitate the simulation are estimated visually, haptically, or via transfer from training datasets
Requirements: University degree (Master) in Computer Science or related field, concluded with excellent grades and a research-based thesis; Solid background in Robotics and/or Computer Vision; Demonstrated programming skills in C++ and/or Python; Willingness to travel for conferences, workshops; Very good English language skills
   
Text: Focus of the Research Group: Robotics is not only an exciting research area but continues to drive industrial innovation, especially in manufacturing but also consumer applications. The Smart Human-Robot Collaboration research group investigates interactive computer vision methods as a way to empower robots to perceive their environment as a basis for intelligent action. Interactivity is key to learn from people and reduce the need for large training databases. Your Tasks: In your research work in this project, you develop state-of-the-art computer vision methods in the areas of semantic mapping, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM), 3D reconstruction, and object recognition. The goal of the project is to derive a viable simulation environment automatically from robot sensor data, e.g. RGBD cameras and possible manipulation data, with minimal human intervention. All necessary physical attributes of objects to facilitate the simulation are estimated visually, haptically, or via transfer from training datasets. You are actively involved in the research group and the competence clusters on Human-Machine Cooperation and Applied Artificial Intelligence. You will work in close collaboration with other members of the group and external project partners. Your Profile: > University degree (Master) in Computer Science or related field, concluded with excellent grades and a research-based thesis > Solid background in Robotics and/or Computer Vision > Demonstrated programming skills in C++ and/or Python > Willingness to travel for conferences, workshops > Very good English language skills > Good German language skills, or willingness to learn We offer You: > You can look forward to a working environment that is very pleasant in human terms and extremely interesting in technical terms. > We actively support you in your professional and scientific further qualification. > Work-life balance is important to us - we support this with flexible working hours, home office and part-time arrangements. > Tolerance, openness and equal opportunities towards people of all genders (f/m/d) are important to us. > We would like to continue to grow our proportion of women, which has been increasing for years. > We give preference to applications from severely disabled people who are professionally suitable. > Your position will be remunerated according to the German TV-L E13 Contact Person: Dr. Max Pfingsthorn bewerbung@offis.de Postal Adress: OFFIS e.
