 Job Openings

We are always looking for PhD and Diploma students to work with us on this project. Topics are fast, highdimensional optimization, optimal control for complex dynamics, robot learning, parallel realtime computing (including clusters and GPGPU), ... Candidates must have a strong mathematical and/or programming background and come from fields like physics, computer science or engineering.
