The position is focused on the top-down, optimisation driven design, planning and control of multi-robot systems fo-cused on manufacturing applications. We envision that such systems would allow the realisation of designs with complex structures. The project encompasses various facets such as systems design, optimisation, robust de-sign, control synthesis and simulation of modular multi-robot setups that can together carry out a common objec-tive, like carrying out Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM). The prospective candidate will play a pivotal role in advancing such flexible robot cells, collaborating closely with industry partners to achieve tangible outcomes.

• Collaborate in the development and optimization of multi-robot systems, focusing on the co-design of hardware and control with a priority on lightweight design.
• Engage in computational design methods, numerical optimization, and machine learning approaches.
• Participate in cross-functional teams to design, manufacture, and test components.
• Support lectures and lab exercises; supervise students in related project activities.
• Coordinate activities of the Robot Systems Research Group.
Required profile (please explain in the cover letter)
• Master\'s degree in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, or a related field.
• Proficiency in robot kinematics, dynamics, planning, control, numerical methods and optimisation techniques.
• A proactive approach to problem-solving and a strong commitment to project objectives and hands-on devel-opment.
• Fluent in German or a strong willingness to learn the language.

We offer
• Innovative topic with industry proximity, supportive and interdisciplinary team culture, the opportunity to gradu-ate with a Ph.D., and possible research stays abroad.
• Full position as research/teaching assistant (m/f/d) with salary according to TV-L.
