What are my responsibilities?
You will develop innovative autonomy functions for industrial applications like smart factories, smart grid, or intelligent transportation systems based on machine learning, optimization, and advanced automatic control methods.
You will get to implement these functions in proof-of-concepts and solutions in feasibility studies, quick prototypes, technical specifications, and eventually into larger systems and product components.
Be able to test and validate these solutions in laboratory and field tests.
Get to identify, define, acquire and lead industrial R&D projects.
Work with our business units to understand algorithm requirements and deliver solutions.
Be able to protect the results of your work through patent applications and publish protected results at conferences or in top journals.
What skills are needed to qualify for this job?
Ph.D. in Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, or related fields with strong focus on machine learning, optimization, and automatic control required; post-PhD experience in the same field, e.g. in an industrial research center is a plus.
Strong theoretical background and practical experience in different machine learning, optimization, and automatic control methods like reinforcement learning, nonlinear and mixed-integer programming, and model-predictive control, e.g. proven through at least 3 years research in this field.
Good knowledge of at least one industrial application domain like flexible manufacturing, robotics, power system, intelligent transportation systems, i.e. proven through at least 3 years research in this field.
Proven ability to develop new research ideas as demonstrated by a strong publication record and early developments to the level of a working system prototypes as well as involvement in writing funding proposals for research grants.
Good knowledge of tools and languages typically used to support design and validation of machine learning, optimization, and controller design, e.g. C/C++, MATLAB, Simulink.
Excellent interpersonal and communication (verbal & written) skills in English required.
