The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research centre and the space agency of the Federal Republic of Germany. Here, 8000 employees work together on a unique variety of topics in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, digitalisation and security. Their missions range from basic research to the development of innovative applications and products for tomorrow. Cutting-edge research requires excellent minds – particularly more females – at all levels, who fully achieve their potential in an inspiring environment. Launch your mission with us.
For our Institute of Transportation Systems in Berlin we are looking for a
Around 190 scientists – engineers, psychologists and computer scientists – work at the Institute of Transportation Systems on the locations Braunschweig and Berlin. They carry out research and development for automotive and railway systems and for the traffic management.
Join us in shaping the future of mobility! Be part of an interdisciplinary team in which committed men and women have turned their passion for tomorrow's mobility into their profession. Work with us on numerous national and international projects together with our research partners and industry to develop cooperative and highly automated traffic systems on road, rail and in the air in order to increase efficiency, comfort and safety in traffic, especially in urban areas. We concentrate our research and development on automotive and rail systems, traffic and mobility management as well as intermodality and local public transport. The key objectives of our work are: Safety, efficiency, sustainability, economy and quality. Our research always focuses on the entire transport system with all its interactions.
To achieve these goals, cross-domain methods of sensor- and data-supported perception and environment detection are necessary. By knowing its own position and the current situation in which the traffic system is currently located, it can plan and execute its next steps automatically. After all, the networking and cooperation of automated rail, road and air vehicles in a coordinated overall system offer completely new possibilities that need to be researched and utilized for our society.
As part of your work, you will work with the Sensor Systems Group on topics including the following:
Research, concepts and application of machine learning methods and methods of artificial intelligence for environmental perception and ego-localization
Processing of sensor (raw) data, evaluation of sensors and possible applications as well as integration of sensors and data processing methods into automated systems
Development of methods for combining data and information from different sources
Conceptual further development of the topic area on the basis of current research results
Conception, implementation and evaluation of scientific experiments with the institute's facilities
Publication and presentation of research and project results in a national and international environment
Collaboration in project acquisition and preparation of grant applications
For your research, DLR offers you an integrated tool chain with numerous laboratories, (connectable) simulators, automated test rigs and research infrastructure in the field such as the Intelligent Mobility (AIM) application platform or the Test Bed Lower Saxony.
People with professional experience or committed young professionals can expect a stimulating research environment, plenty of room for their own ideas and international visibility as well as responsible tasks to help shape the European and national environment.
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development.
