Tierschutzbeauftragten (m/w/d)

  • Stuttgart

Das Max-Planck-Institut für Intelligente Systeme erforscht die Prinzipien von Wahrnehmen, Lernen und Handeln in autonomen Systemen, um diese erfolgreich mit komplexen Umgebungen interagieren zu lassen. Dabei werden neben biologischen Modell-Systemen auch hybride und rein synthetische Systeme untersucht. Mit einer stark interdisziplinären Herangehensweise werden Computer-, Ingenieurs- und Materialwissenschaft sowie Biologie miteinander kombiniert. In der Abteilung für Physische Intelligenz (http://pi.is.mpg.de) am Stuttgarter Standort wird u.a. an Mikrorobotern geforscht, die in der Zukunft im menschlichen Organismus zur Diagnostik und Behandlung von Tumor- und weiteren Erkrankungen eingesetzt werden sollen. Für die Erprobung dieser vielversprechenden neuen Techniken sind Versuche an Mäusen und Ratten geplant. Für die Abteilung Physische Intelligenz suchen wir zum nächstmöglichen Zeitpunkt eine/n

Medical technical assistant (MTA) (f/m/d) or Biological technical assistant (BTA) (f/m/d) or Engineer or Medical physicist or Biologist (f/m/d)

  • Stuttgart

The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) conducts research to understand the principles of perception, action, and learning in natural and artificial systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems. The institute studies these principles in biological, computational, hybrid, and material systems. We take a highly interdisciplinary approach that combines engineering, computation, material science, and biology. At our Stuttgart site, the Physical Intelligence Department (http://pi.is.mpg.de) focuses parts of its research on the principles of design, locomotion, control, perception, and learning of single and large numbers of small-scale mobile robots made of smart and soft materials as our physical intelligence platforms. The Physical Intelligence Department is searching for a full-time Medical technical assistant (MTA) (m/f/d) or Biological technical assistant (BTA) (m/f/d) or Engineer or Medical physicist or Biologist (m/f/d).

Cambridge – Tübingen PhD Fellowships in Machine Learning (f/m/d)

  • Tübingen

The University of Cambridge Machine Learning Group and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems Empirical Inference Department in Tübingen are two of the world’s leading centers for machine learning research. In 2014, we launched a new and exciting initiative whereby a small group of select PhD candidates are jointly supervised at both institutions. The principal advisors are Adrian Weller and José Miguel Hernández Lobato at Cambridge University, and Bernhard Schölkopf and other research group leaders at the Max-Planck Institute in Tübingen.

Intern for Robotics Control (f/m/d)

  • Stuttgart

As a collaboration between the Physical Intelligence Department and the Empirical Inference Department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, we are offering a paid internship on the development of machine learning-based control/motion planning algorithms for controlling the complex interactions between swarm microrobots and their surrounding environments. More specifically, we aim at implementing machine learning algorithms (imitation learning and reinforcement learning) for navigating a microrobotic swarm autonomously in a complex environment.
