FRAUNHOFER INSTITUTE FOR COMMUNICATION, INFORMATION PROCESSING AND ERGONOMICS FKIE
THE DEPARTMENT OF ITF AT THE FRAUNHOFER INSTITUTE FOR COMMUNICATION, INFORMATION PROCESSING AND ERGONOMICS FKIE PROVIDES A POSITION AS
RESEARCH ASSOCIATE* INTELLIGENT COMMAND & CONTROL SYSTEMS
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. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas.
Help us shape the future! The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is the leading organization for applied research in Europe. The Fraunhofer Institute for Communication, Information Processing and Ergonomics FKIE develops technologies and processes with the aim of identifying, minimizing and controlling existential risks at an early stage. In close cooperation with strategic partners, the institute is dedicated to the entire processing chain of data and information: from acquisition, transmission and processing to reliable protection. The Fraunhofer FKIE is committed to this mission both in the civilian sector and in control and reconnaissance processes in the defence technology sector.
What we expect from you
We are looking for research associates who are capable and willing to familiarize themselves with pioneering techniques and solutions and can think both inside and outside of the box. Applicants should have completed higher academic studies in Mathematics, Computing, or other studies with an emphasis on technical skills. Intellectual openness is more important than your degree, even if we are known as an institute that focuses on computer science. Programming knowledge in a common language, preferably Java and/or Python, is required. It would also be advantageous if applicants are already familiar with the tools and methods of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
What you can expect from us
The Fraunhofer FKIE offers enthusiastic developers* challenging and varied tasks and responsibilities with creative leeway. We cover a large range of different topics and areas and can develop complete systemic solutions. The department Information Technology for Command & Control Systems (ITF) develops and tests architectures and interoperability solutions for complex decision support systems. An important element is using methods from Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for situational awareness and assessment. In order to do so, we cooperate closely with both users and operators. We are offering you a pleasant and exciting work environment, the possibility to develop concrete solutions with a practical application, and, last but not least, the opportunity for personal development.
Appointment, remuneration and social security benefits based on the public-sector collective wage agreement (TVöD). Additionally Fraunhofer may grant performance-based variable remuneration components.
