The Research Training Group (RTG) “Integrity and Collaboration in 
Dynamic Sensor Networks (i.c.sens)”invites applications for *positions* of


        *Doctoral Researchers (m/f/d) Navigation, Robotics, Computer
        Vision, Geoinformatics* *(Salary Scale 13 TV-L, 100 %)*


starting December 1, 2019. The positions are limited to 3 years.

The Research Training Group is dedicated to investigating techniques 
that can ensure the error-free operation of technology in the context of 
the ever-increasing interactions between humans and robots. Many tasks 
are better solved in collaboration of such systems rather than by each 
system separately. In the future, collaborative sensor networks that can 
guarantee integrity will be core components of automated or autonomous 
vehicles, but also of systems in the context of the fourth industrial 
revolution (“Industry 4.0”), in the construction industry and in service 
robotics. In particular, such groups of mobile and communicating sensors 
have to guarantee the integrity of their navigational information in 
order not to endanger their environment. A unique combination of experts 
at Leibniz Universität provides ideal conditions for the solution of the 
research problems to be tackled in the context of the RTG. PhD 
candidates will work on the methodological basis as well as on the 
implementation of concepts for integrity and collaboration for dynamic 
sensor networks in connection with digital maps

We offer an attractive position in an interdisciplinary team working in 
a highly relevant topical field of research, which provides excellent 
opportunities for further professional qualification. The structured 
supervision program is designed to allow for a graduation within three 

    Employment conditions

To qualify for the position, applicants should holda M.Sc. degree in 
geodesy and geoinformatics, information technology, computer science, 
applied mathematics, aerospace engineering, robotics, or a related 
discipline. Furthermore, the ability for interdisciplinary and 
independent work as well as a very good command of the English language 
and a passion for learning German are required. Additional specific 
requirements are related to the topics of the individual PhD-projects.

Part-time employment can be arranged on request.

As an equal opportunities employer, Leibniz University Hannover intends 
to promote women and men. For this reason suitably qualified women are 
specifically invited to apply. Preference will be given to equally 
qualified applicants with disabilities.

    Application procedure

Applications have to include a CV, the full academic record 
(certificates, transcript of record of B.Sc. and M.Sc. or equivalent in 
English or German language), as well as a research statement (one page) 
indicating your specific interest in one of the research topics 
<https://www.icsens.uni-hannover.de/gssp-project00.html?&L=1> of the 
RTG, highlighting your personal interest and strengths for a specific 
PhD topic, as well as initial research ideas concerning this topic.

Please send your application in German or English language in electronic 
form (PDF) *until August 19th, 2019* to: icsensife.uni-hannover.de


*Project 1: 
Bounding and propagating GPS observation uncertainty with interval
