The manual dex­ter­ity of humans remains unmatched by robotic manip­u­la­tion sys­tems. We aim to sig­ni­fic­antly reduce this gap by pro­du­cing highly cap­able manip­u­la­tion sys­tems. Inspired and guided by obser­va­tions and under­stand­ing of human manip­u­la­tion skills, this pro­ject explores sys­tem­atic co-design of hand mor­pho­logy and motion gen­er­a­tion/con­trol to devise sys­tems with novel (inhand) manip­u­la­tion cap­ab­il­it­ies. The aim is to develop a prin­cipled under­stand­ing of soft robotic (inhand) manip­u­la­tion.

Work­ing field:

Research on soft dex­ter­ous, sen­s­or­ized robot hands and soft manip­u­la­tion; it is pos­sible to work towards a PhD.


  • suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in Com­puter Sci­ence or a related sub­ject with out­stand­ing res­ults
  • excel­lent know­ledge and exper­i­ence in soft robot­ics, soft manip­u­la­tion, soft sens­ing
  • exper­i­ence in (deep) machine learn­ing, com­puter vis­ion, con­trol and plan­ning are desir­able
  • know­ledge of object-ori­ented pro­gram­ming
  • very good Eng­lish skills; good com­mand of Ger­man is required or the will­ing­ness to learn this

To ensure equal oppor­tun­it­ies between women and men, applic­a­tions by women with the required qual­i­fic­a­tions are expli­citly desired. Qual­i­fied indi­vidu­als with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be favored. The TU Ber­lin val­ues the diversity of its mem­bers and is com­mit­ted to the goals of equal oppor­tun­it­ies.

Please send cop­ies only. Ori­ginal doc­u­ments will not be returned.
