Open SHK (student helper) Positions at our Chair

You can find all open SHK positions of our chair on this page. If you are interested in a topic, don’t hesitate and contact the responsible supervisor today for more information. We look forward to working with you soon.

Network Simulation and Machine Learning

Supervisor: Christian Vielhaus

We are looking for motivated students that would like to participate in research projects of the artificial intelligence (AI) team. There are two areas where you can actively work with us:

  • Network simulation: We use network simulators / emulators (e.g. ns-3) to generate data and test AI algorithms. Students can join us in implementing interesting scenarios and improve their knowledge about TCP/IP protocol stacks, mobile networks and software engineering. C++ skills are required for this task.
  • Machine learning (ML): Students can work with us on applied ML tasks in communication networks. Python skills and basic knowledge about ML algorithms are required for this task.

The focus of your work will be on hands-on software implementation. You will have to write and test code in collaboration with us. We invite all interested students to our office to explain further details and clarify open questions. Do not hesitate to contact us at any time via mail.

  • Starting time: Immediately
  • Weekly working hours: Between 5h and 20h, preferably at least 10h
  • Required skills: Linux, Networking, Python and/or C++

Post-Shannon to stop the Data Flood

Supervisor: Caspar v. Lengerke
Document: Post-Shannon to stop the Data Flood

We are currently looking for a motivated student to help us on the emerging topic of Post-Shannon communications.

  • Desired skills: Information and coding theory, Python
  • Starting time: Immediately
  • Weekly working hours: Between 5h and 20h, preferably at least 10h

Object Detection for Mobile Robots

Supervisor: Peter Sossalla
Document: Object Detection for Mobile Robots
We are looking for motivated students that would like to participate in research projects in the area of Robotics and 5G.

We are actively looking for students to help us with the realization of a mobile robot use case in the Transparent Factory (Gläserne Manufaktur). This involves the implementation of an object recognition with an RGB-D camera. This can be for example an Intel Realsense camera. Our goal is to recognize a car body with the help of RGB or depth data, to determine the relative position and to plan the approach of the robot accordingly.

  • Optimal skills: Knowledge in programming languages (C++, Python…), OpenCV, ROS, OpenVino
  • Starting time: Immediately
  • Weekly working hours: Between 5h and 20h, preferably at least 10h

Open Working Student Positions at our Startups

Meshmerize | Linux networks and C programming (m/f/d)

At Meshmerize, we build wireless mesh networks for industrial robots and UAVs. We enable systems with reliable and resilient networks based on relatively inexpensive WiFi hardware by combining bleeding-edge research with the practical needs of the Industry 4.0. Backed by some of the top-tier early-stage investors in Europe, we are on a journey to redefine the way moving robots communicate with each other.

We are looking for students who are familiar with Linux wireless and C programming, willing to learn and explore the magic of wireless mesh networks, to help us build the internet of moving things.
