Research Scientist Human-Machine Interaction

WorkplaceOffenbach am Main, Hessen, Germany

The Honda Research Institute Europe is working at the cutting edge of scientific research towards artificial intelligence, robotics, and intelligent systems. Our vision is a society in which humans and intelligent cyber-physical systems raise and support each other in accord with nature.

We are looking for a highly motivated and talented researcher m/f sharing our spirit of turning pioneering scientific research into groundbreaking innovations. If you want to contribute your ideas for making this a reality, join us at our institute at Offenbach am Main, Germany .

Future intelligent systems which cooperate with humans will have to develop a joint understanding of the currently shared situation. This requires making references to objects, actions or locations, and communicating about the shared environment. A key necessity for this is an increasingly intuitive and natural human-machine interaction. Here, speech and natural language processing play a central role but also multimodal cues like gesture and gaze are important communication channels.


  • Research on general models of situated human-machine communication in dynamic environments
  • Application of multimodal interaction approaches for robots and intelligent driver assistance systems
  • Integration of cutting-edge speech and natural language processing technology in real-time interactive systems
  • Publication and presentation of research results in the scientific community
  • Cooperation with leading universities and industrial research partners


  • PhD or an excellent Master of Science degree, and experience in a related field
  • PhDs should have a proven track record of excellent research and the ability to define a research agenda contributing to our vision
  • Applicants holding a master’s degree have the possibility to pursue a PhD in cooperation with academic partner institutions
  • Experience in state-of-the-art speech and language processing technology
  • Good programming skills in one of the following languages: C, C++, Python
