PhD Position Mesh Mould
Leider existiert die Ausschreibung nur auf Englisch:

Gramazio Kohler Research – The Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication at the Department of Architecture – invites applications for a fully funded full-time PhD position to further investigate the “Mesh Mould” process. Mesh Mould is an innovative digital design and robotic fabrication process for non-standard concrete elements, which unifies formwork and reinforcement. The research project is situated within the interdisciplinary National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication. The PhD position starts in August/September 2019.

PhD Position – Gramazio Kohler Research / NCCR Digital Fabrication

We are looking for a highly motivated architect with a strong interest in computational design and digital fabrication with an architectural or advanced technical degree. We expect good programming skills (preferably Python or C#), experience in CAD/CAM and/or robotic fabrication. An interest in mathematics, mechanical and structural engineering is desirable. You should be fluent in English, show a high level of initiative and enjoy working in an interdisciplinary research team.

Applicants must hold a Master’s degree acquired at university level (equivalent to the FHEQ-Level 7) in architecture or related fields.

We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, one-page research statement on Mesh Mould, portfolio of your work in academia and practice and contact details of 2 referees. Early applications are encouraged. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.

Software Engineer
Die Stellenausschreibung existiert nur auf Englisch:

We are looking for a highly skilled software engineer to work on the development of the open-source python framework for research in architecture and robotic fabrication (COMPAS framework and the COMPAS FAB package). You will focus on the development and integration of software and hardware systems and work in a multi-disciplinary team of software engineers, architects, computer scientists and roboticists. This project is conducted in collaboration with a major player in the field of technology and aims to bridge cutting-edge automation technology and multi-robot planning with computational design in architecture.

You have a degree in Computer Science or a related field and several years of experience as a software engineer. You have solid experience in multiple programming languages, in particular Python and C/C++. Experience in working with distributed systems with a focus on robotics (ROS) and knowledge in path planning and robot control is essential. Familiarity with containerization and continuous integration pipelines is an asset. You are fluent in English and enjoy working in an international, diverse and interdisciplinary team.

We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents: letter of motivation, CV, Github profile, statement of experience, and contact details of at least one reference via the following link: Online application portal
Please apply exclusively via the online application portal. Applications sent by e-mail or post will not be considered.

Mechanical/Robotics Engineer in Digital Construction (80-100%)
Die Stellenausschreibung existiert nur auf Englisch:

We are looking for a Mechanical or Robotics Engineer working on the research project Mesh Mould Prefabrication - an innovative digital design and robotic fabrication process for non-standard concrete elements, which investigates the unification of formwork and reinforcement. Your work will focus on the development and implementation of an automated fabrication process to feed, bend, cut and weld reinforcement steel to manufacture geometrically complex steel meshes. As such, you will be responsible for the mechanical and process engineering of the project, as well as support the machine design and product development. This multidisciplinary research project is conducted in collaboration with a major player in the construction industry and aims at implementing the Mesh Mould technology at an industrial scale.

You are a highly committed candidate, holding a diploma or master's degree in robotics, mechanical engineering, or other related disciplines. You should feel comfortable to work in an interdisciplinary environment that aims to bridge the gap between research and industry. You have in-depth knowledge in (some of) the following: mechanics, material science, mechatronics, automation, digital fabrication, manufacturing and structures. Furthermore, you have experience working with 3D Modeling (Rhino) / CAD (NX / SolidWorks ), FEM, Digital Fabrication, Programming (C++ / C# / Python), Industrial Robots, Mechanical Design, Manufacturing and (Metal) Workshop skills. In addition, you are fluent in English (German skills are welcome but not mandatory), are highly motivated, reliable, accurate, and have excellent teamwork skills.
