Open Position(s)

 

Research Assistants (m/w/d) at the Faculty of Computer Science at the Research Institute CODE

  • The University of the Bundeswehr Munich is firmly anchored in the national as well as international research landscape. The staff members conduct research together with external partners from science and industry within the framework of the funded research project Air Mobility Integration U-Space (AMIUS) under the leadership of Airbus Defense and Space. The research project is concerned with the development of a real-world laboratory to demonstrate the operation of air cabs and drones in urban space in conjunction with a model-based assessment platform. The work of UniBw M will be carried out at the Hamburg site in close cooperation with the Institute for Air Transport Systems at the TU Hamburg. The tasks are specifically adapted to the employees within the framework of the cooperation. We want to make a difference with you and show new ways in aviation!
