  • Communication with industry partners
  • Software development + web application engineering

As part of your role as a student research assistant, you would be gaining practical experience in an active research project, with the opportunity to gain novel insights into current research. At the same time, you will be able to sharpen your research skills, while working flexible hours (5-20 hours / week, onsite in Garching or remote) on diverse and exciting tasks.

For these positions, we prefer students meeting the following requirements:
