RWTH Aachen - Chair for Integrated Signal Processing Systems (ISS)

The algorithm group of Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems (ICE) / Chair for Integrated Signal Processing Systems (ISS) is looking for an excellent Ph.D. student which is hired and paid as a full-time researcher. In the context of a public funded research project new concepts for digital logistics of autonomous electrical vehicles are studied. Within this project, concepts for highly autonomous driving of shuttle buses are developed. Your research focuses on the application, implementation and optimization of machine learning algorithms on embedded systems. 

Research Assistant/Associate

Work­ing field:

  • Par­ti­ci­pa­tion in rese­arch pro­jects.
  • Inter­ac­tion with our rese­arch and indus­try part­ners
  • Par­ti­ci­pa­tion in pro­ject manage­ment and event orga­niza­t­ion
