Support us in enabling cloud computing for critical applications like the control of robots. Because cognitive systems react independently and intelligently, they offer new opportunities in many different areas of life. In cyber-physical systems, flexible software architectures can be used to separate physical processes from the controls. The controls are then located outside of the physical machine, such as in an edge or cloud network. With cloud-computing, micro-services and their allocation continuously evolve. However, a holistic view is required to assure the integrity of safety-critical systems. Your results will contribute to our resilient cloud framework and come alive in our industry 4.0 demonstrator, for example, by controlling a robot arm safely and reliably from the cloud.

What we expect from you

  • Experience with the development of web-based user interfaces
  • Knowledge of container / cloud technologies (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Good knowledge of the English language
  • Curiosity, creativity, and the desire to proactively and autonomously organize your work

Especially suitable for students with the field of study in Computer Science.

What you can expect from us

  • Participation in a dynamic team with innovative task areas
  • Practical approach to your studies
  • The duration of employment and working time is set by arrangement

Remuneration according to the general works agreement for employing assistant staff. In case of identical qualifications preference will be given to severely disabled candidates. We would like to point out that the chosen job title also includes the third gender. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft emphasises gender-independent professional equality.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS conducts applied research into the topics of tomorrow: artificial intelligence, cognitive systems and intelligent software architectures for autonomous systems. Our primary focus is safety-critical applications in the areas of Industry 4.0 and automotive, as well as mobile machines and commercial vehicles. We thus develop dependable software technologies for people. For instance, we examine how artificial intelligence can be validated so that it can be utilized even in autonomous vehicles, human-robot interaction and medical instruments. That means we’re paving the way for a dependable digital world.

If we could arise your interest, please apply exclusively online with all the necessary documents (cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates).
