Full Professor (W3) (m/f/d) in Machine Learning and Robotics
BY APRIL 2021
The professorship will be part of the newly founded Institute for Artificial Intelligence within the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. The candidate is expected to cover the areas of machine learning and robotics broadly in research and teaching, including fundamental aspects of learning theory and autonomous systems as well as AI application systems.
We are looking for an excellent scientist with international standing who has made distinguished contributions to several of the following areas:
Fundamentals of learning theory and decision theory
The realization of self-learning and intelligent behavior in robotic systems
Reinforcement learning and learning from demonstrations
Robotic-manipulation, mobile robotics and human-robot-interaction
Perception in robotics
Integration of learning from simulations and from real-world observations
Planning and optimization methodology in machine learning and in robotics
Ethical aspects of machine learning and robotics
Application-driven AI research (e.g. in architecture and building industry, simulation science, design and production, biomedical systems)
The University and the Department of Computer Science provide excellent opportunities to participate in several highly reputed interdisciplinary research projects. These include the Clusters of Excellence “Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture“ and “Data-Integrated Simulation Science“ which have machine learning and robotics as core areas. Furthermore, Cyber Valley is an initiative of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg to foster leading AI research and to join the activities of the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen, the Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and of partners from industry and the local Fraunhofer Institutes. Cyber Valley provides a unique setting for collaboration including the International Max-Planck Research School on Intelligent Systems.
We expect the new professor to contribute to teaching in the Bachelor and Master programs in Computer Science, in particular in Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Systems and Machine Learning, to collaborate with the partners in Cyber Valley and the Clusters of Excellence, to participate in academic administration, and to take an active role in the acquisition of external funding.
