VIRTUAL VEHICLE is an internationally successful research and development center for virtual vehicle technologies. We deal with future vehicle concepts and future development processes. Current developments in the field of powertrains and driver assistance systems are leading to strongly software-based vehicles (software-defined car) and therefore require a rethink and new approaches in vehicle development. With over 300 employees, we are the largest research center for virtual vehicle development in Europe. We are working on safe, environmentally friendly and affordable vehicles of the future.

The objective of this role is to gain new insights into human-vehicle interaction in digital mobility and, based on this, to further develop context-based information systems for the vehicle of tomorrow. In collaborative research projects, technical innovations along the data value chain (data generation, data collection, data (pre-)processing, data analysis, data provision by means of digital services) are worked on with industry and science partners.
