Are you – CREATIVE? Do you love – TECHNOLOGY and PERFORMANCE?
Are you – INQUISITIVE? Are you – DRIVEN BY RESEARCH?
Are you – SOLUTION-ORIENTATED? Then you’ve come to the right place!
We understand technology as an innovative field of activity, and we focus our effort on the development of our customers’ mechatronic solutions with great enthusiasm. Hence, we need performance-oriented employees who seek for variety and challenge.
Our factor of success is our highly-qualified staff that exhibit outstanding expertise and live common values. These values include the pursuit of common goals and missions, team spirit, open – plain and respectful communication, motivation for innovation, and the courage to think beyond borders. Thus, the advancement of our staff is a central element of our human resource management. We are offering a high level of creative freedom, a wide range of opportunities for education and training, and a working environment that supports your personal and professional development.
What we offer
Students for modelling piezoelectric actuators
The Linz Center of Mechatronics GmbH developed the software tool SyMSpace, which is used for optimization of mechatronic systems. In the moment e.g. simulation models of piezoelectric actuators are integrated, so that the design of this drive technology can be optimized.
We search for motivated students, who model piezoelectric actuators for utilization in SyMSpace. This might be in form of a Bachelor- or Masterhthesis, an internship or a project work as well.
- Derivation of analytic models e.g. in Mathematica, Maple…
- Implementation of system matrices in Matlab respectively Python
- (Parametric model in NGSolve)
- (Parametric model in ANSYS)
- (measurement of a prototype und comparison with simulation)
- Documentation of the models for SyMSpace
- Create drawings for representation of the components respectively automatic report-creation
- Support in the integration of the components in SyMSpace
- Result-oriented and self-contained function
- Analytic modeling of mechanical systems (e.g. beam theory, state space representation,…)
- Fundamental programming knowledge e.g. in Matlab or Python
- Fundamental knowledge in graphical software e.g. CorelDraw
- (knowledge in NGSolve or ANSYS)
- (knowledge in measurement instrumentation (voltage, acceleration))
- Literature concerning modeling
- Support/introduction in required software
- Similar components and it´s implementation as orientation
- Flexible working hours: depending on working-structure (BSc-, MSc-, projectwork- or internship)
- Competitive, performance-based salary (basis of negotiation € 1.000,- brutto/40h)

Open PhD Position - "Transfer Learning with Fuzzy Systems"
The Linz Center of Mechatronics GmbH (LCM) and the Department of Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems (FLLL) of the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) are offering a PhD position in the field of transfer learning with fuzzy systems. The basic task is to transfer knowledge from one or a number of original source tasks to one or more related target tasks with little training data available for each, while achieving robust and consistent models. Thereby, (one or more of) the following related variants for transfer learning could be considered throughout the PhD:
- Direct model transfer from one concrete source task to a related target task.
- Learning common transferable representations.
- Multi-task learning as a variant of inductive transfer learning.
In all variants, it is a challenge to transfer model parameters, model structures and/or input feature representations, and this ideally with as little labelled data in the target task as possible (for cost reduction). Regarding model architecture, the focus will be on fuzzy systems, which offer a division of the input space into local granules (rules) and can be used as multi-event models. Thus, partial local transfer strategies may also play an important role.
The developed approaches should be tuned and evaluated on real-world data from industrial projects. The position will be located in the LCM, with mentoring and supervision activities by the Department of Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems.
Profile/Personal Qualification of the candidate:
Applicants should preferably have a completed master in Mathematics/Informatics/Mechatronics, 300 ECTS points received during her/his study (bachelor and master) and have prior experience in soft computing and/or machine learning techniques. We expect willingness for preparing publications in international journals and conferences, and clearly suppose an interest in transfer learning and adaptive systems. Working permission for the EU is required.
Duration of contract: 3 years, Deadline of Application.: Sep 30, 2018, Start Date: Jan 01, 2019
LCM and JKU wish to increase the proportion of female personal and, for this reason, especially welcome applications from women.
Contact: Applicants should send a CV, degree certificates and references to own publications together with a letter of motivation to Mag.a Gerda Klammer, MBA. firstname.lastname@example.org
