Research Assistant (f/m/d)
for a position in the “REMARO” project

Fachbereich 3 - Mathematik/Informatik

Entgelt- / Besoldungsgruppe E 13 - Vollzeit
Kennziffer: A5/21
Bewerbungsfrist: 10.03.2021
Öffentliche Ausschreibung

At the University of Bremen, the Institute for Artificial Intelligence – part of the department Mathematics and Computer Science FB3 - calls for applications in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics – under the condition of job release – for a position in the “REMARO” project:

Research Assistant (f/m/d)
- Salary scale TV-L 13 (100 %)
for the period of three years.

The employment is fixed-term and governed by the Act of Academic Fixed-Term Contract,
§2 (1) (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG). Therefore, candidates may only be considered for appointment if they still have the respective qualification periods available in accordance with § 2 (1) WissZeitVG.


The Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IAI) investigates methods for cognition-enabled robot control. The research is at the intersection of robotics and Artificial Intelligence and includes methods for intelligent perception, dexterous object manipulation, plan-based robot control, and knowledge representation for robots.

REMARO attacks one of the most pressing problems of modern computing, the safety of AI, in the well defined context of submarine robotics. The REMARO research fellows will develop the first ever submarine robotics AI methods with quantified reliability, correctness specifications, models, tests, and analysis & verification methods. For more information see remaro.eu/index.php/positions/


  • As a researcher of the IAI, you actively research by applying and extending the elaborated methods and tools of the IAI (e.g., CRAM, KnowRoB, and openEASE) to the uncertainties of limited resources, computation, and sensor data of submarine robots.
  • You develop a Digital Twin that simulates harsh continuously evolving environments and service tasks on real robots.
  • You design a detailed representation of an environment to be inspected, including data coming from past inspections, both similar and different (e.g., transfer learning from an inspection of the interior of an installation).
  • Your research will be especially the environment representation, semantic annotation, and sensor data fusion deal with noisy data and unreliable information in dynamic environments.


  • University degree in Computer Science (Master, University Diploma) with good results or a comparable degree in relevant subjects
  • Very good academic achievements e.g. in the field of robotics, AI, perception, programming, etc.
  • Profound knowledge in the development of complex software systems, ideally in the field of robotics
  • Substantial know-how on AI methods in robotic applications
  • Excellent programming skills: the programming languages used include, for example: Python, C ++, LISP, Prolog
  • Ability to communicate proficiently in English
  • High level of commitment, flexibility and team spirit

At the date of recruitment, the researcher must not have resided, or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Germany for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date. The PhD examination acceptance requires a “Certificate of Equivalence for Foreign Vocational Qualifications”. More information available at www.kmk.org/zab/central-office-for-foreign-education/certificate-of-equivalence.html and www.uni-bremen.de/fileadmin/user_upload/sites/international/Studieren_in_Bremen/AnerkennungPromotion.pdf.

Obtaining such a certificate is not necessary for the job application, but it is required later in the recruitment process.

If you think that your knowledge and skills match part of the task areas, we are looking forward to your application.
