ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A NEW CHALLENGE IN RESEARCH? ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT AI AND SENSOR TECHNOLOGY? THEN WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOU TO BUILD UP A NEW RESEARCH TEAM AS


Research Associate in the field of AI based sensor technology

The Fraunhofer institute IPMS is currently working closely with the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg and other non-university research institutions researching innovative sensory solutions in various projects, for example the "Innovation Campus Microelectronics and Sensor Technology Cottbus (iCampμs)". In the future, sensors will take over sophisticated tasks in industrial manufacturing, human machine interfaces (collaborative robotics) and in medical science.
Especially for time-sensitive on-site decisions, the synergy of sensoric and AI methods is a promising approach to rapidly evaluate complex data for the inference of specific actions.

Your new challenging duty is waiting for you

You will conduct research in the field of AI methods for application-oriented development of innovative sensor concepts as well as the evaluation and validation. The research will include scientific exchange with partners and the community. You will publish results, mentor students, and build up the research group successively.

Important to us

You have completed a doctorate in electrical engineering, physics, computer science or equivalent and you already have experience in one of these fields:

  • Application of electronic multi-sensor system
  • Sensor data fusion and complex sensor signal processing
  • Electronic implementation in embedded systems of artificial intelligence methods

Ideally, you have already gained expertise in research and development of AI based sensory systems. You must have great communication and presentation skills and you are interested in obtaining a habilitation. In addition, you are highly motivated to collaborate in research tasks.

What you could expect

We provide you with a challenging and responsible long-term position in research and we support your personal development. We also provide you with freedom to develop your talents and ideas. Through flexible working hours, we support you in balancing your private and professional life.
The employment location is Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg as well as Fraunhofer Institute IPMS.

In case of identical qualifications preference will be given to severely disabled candidates.
We would like to point out that the chosen job title also includes the third gender.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft emphasises gender-independent professional equality.

Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products.
