Research Assistant/ Postdoctoral Researcher - Kennziffer A 112/08
The Transregional Collaborative Research Center
SFB/TR 8 Spatial Cognition: Reasoning, Action, Interaction
pursues interdisciplinary long-term research in Spatial Cognition.
Particular emphasis is given to:
Action in Space: Cognitive robotics, explorative localization and
mapping, robot navigation, human navigation and wayfinding, sensorimotor
representations of spatio-temporal structures, embodied cognition;
Spatial Reasoning: Knowledge representation, human spatial thinking,
computational modeling, diagrammatic reasoning, cognitive and
computational complexity, qualitative spatio-temporal calculi;
Communication and Interaction in Space: Formal methods, spatial and
linguistic ontologies, computational linguistics, environmental
cognition, integration of spatial methods.
A description of the current research projects of the SFB/TR 8 can be

The SFB/TR 8 is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
The SFB/TR 8 advertises the following position:
1 Research Assistant / Postdoctoral Researcher
SFB/TR 8 project A5-[ActionSpace], Universität Bremen
(TVL 13, approx. ? 35,000 to ? 50,000 p.a. gross)
reference number A 112/08
The position is available from September 2008, subject to the
availability of the funds, until the end of 2010. Extension is possible.
The researcher will develop a multi-hierarchical sensorimotor
representation established by actions (movements of the agent and of his
sensors) and by complex sensory properties (nonlinear wavelet features,
multisensory information). Moreover, he/she will develop a subsystem
that enables unsupervised learning of hierarchical knowledge structures.
The sensorimotor representation will be implemented and tested in a
(virtual) mobile agent, which must be able to perform exploratory
localization and navigation. The detailed work plan is specified in the
s, or Ph.D.). Strong interest in interdisciplinary collaboration is
In particular, the applicant should have qualifications and/or interests
in the following fields:
Artificial intelligence and cognitive science
Computer vision, image processing, auditory and multisensory processing
Natural scene statistics
Classification techniques (subspace classifiers, etc.)
Neural networks and unsupervised learning (e.g., independent component
Software development and programming (Java, C, Python, Matlab)
Interest and basic background in neurobiology and perception
We offer the opportunity to gain research experience in a modern and
enthusiastic research environment with strong interdisciplinary and
