Research Assistant - Geometry/Robotics

Work­ing field:

Research within our pro­ject "RAM - Robots assem­bling mod­els" which deals with the auto­mated digital con­struc­tion of parts and their assembly. The pro­ject is a cooper­a­tion between the Geo­metry group at TU Ber­lin and the Werk5 GmbH. The suc­cess­full applic­ant will work within a small team and research geo­met­rical algorithms and develop a soft­ware lib­rary to gen­er­ate the parts and pro­ced­ures to assemble the parts with a 7-axis robot. The research at TU Ber­lin will be coordin­ated with the pro­ject part­ners at Werk5 GmbH, where the neces­sary exper­i­ments with a KUKA LBR iiwa 7 R800 will be per­formed.

The tasks will include:

  • research and devel­op­ment of geo­met­rical algorithms
  • devel­op­ment and imple­ment­a­tion of a soft­ware lib­rary
  • coordin­a­tion of the pro­ject between TU Ber­lin and Werk5 GmbH


  • suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) n math­em­at­ics, com­puter sci­ence, or a related nat­ural sci­ence
  • exper­i­ence in an object ori­ented pro­gram­ming lan­guage, prefer­ably Java or C++ is man­dat­ory
  • abil­ity to work and com­mu­nic­ate in an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team with sci­ent­ists at the uni­versity and industry part­ners is required
  • exper­i­ence in motion plan­ning for robots is a plus
  • exper­i­ence in devel­op­ment and imple­ment­a­tion of geo­met­ric algorithm (com­pu­ta­tional geo­metry) would be great
  • good Eng­lish lan­guage skills are desired
