PhD Positions in Robot Design at The Chair of Robotics Science and Systems Intelligence

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in computer science at Technical University of Munich. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

About us

The Chair of Robotics Science and Systems Intelligence is a member of the newly founded TUM Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence. The research focus of RSI is the development of control algorithms, mechatronics, intelligent robotics and prosthetics, robot learning algorithms, foundations of machine intelligence, as well as nonlinear control and systems theory. Furthermore, we offer unified teaching in terms of lectures, laboratories and student projects with a tight connection to cutting-edge research.


The current state-of-the-art -robotics technology allows for highly sensitive and versatile manipulators. However, their performance still falls short compared to human arms, especially considering dexterity, tactility and efficiency. We aim to advance current robotics technology by taking inspiration from the human and developing a novel robotic hand-arm system capable of human-like perception and actuation. In addition, new control methodologies shall be developed that benefit from the system's capabilities and features.

- Familiarity with CAD-design and mechatronic prototype design - Experience in electronics and micro-controllers - Strong background in control theory Interested applicants should send us the necessary documents via email to: quoting "PhD Application, CeTI" in the e-mail subject line. There is no fixed application deadline; applications will be considered until the positions have been filled. Preference will be given to applications received before March 1st, 2019. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.

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 equal qualifications. International candidates are highly encouraged to apply.
Deadline: As soon as possible
