Post-doctoral researcher / PhD Student in robotics and artificial intelligence for lab automation

The IT University of Copenhagen invites applications for a postdoc and PhD student position in lab automation. The position is funded by and takes place in the context of a large-scale interdisciplinary European project. The succesful candidate will be involved in the development of an open-source framework of hardware and software modules that can be seamlessly integrated to automate specific chemical synthesis processes.

The position will initially focus on gaining an understanding of the application area and the development of a suitable software architecture. It will then proceed to focus on implementation of the system along with optimization techniques based on artificial intelligence/robotics and, finally, on verification in lab automation setups at partner sites.

Given the work is software focussed it is expected that the succesful candidate has expertise in software engineering e.g. from a background in computer science and due to the interdisciplinary nature of the project, experience in one or more of the following areas is a plus, but not required: robotics, artificial intelligence, lab automation/lab processes and interdisciplinary collaboration. Given that this is a large scale project with many partners from different disciplines good communication skills are mandatory.

The Postdoc position is open from the 1st of October and runs for 2 years although extensions are possible.

The PhD student position is open from the 1st of October and runs for 3 years.

The project is led by Professor Kasper Støy, who is a Professor in Computer Science at ITU.
