Opening for Full Time Research Staff
NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY, SINGAPORE

The Interactive Sensing and Robotics Group in the School of Mechanical and
Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is seeking two
full time research staffs for two funded projects on Interactive digital
media and rehabilitation medicine. For a brief description of the project,
please refer to the website: http://interactiverobotics.blogspot.com

The Interactive Sensing and Robotics Group has done extensive research work
in developing novel wearable sensors for capturing and assessing the motion
of the human body and hands. The group also has extensive experience in
developing novel robotic systems and precision mechatronic devices, such as
spherical actuators and micro actuators.


Position 1:- Full time software engineer for 3D game programming and novel
motion sensing interface

The candidate will assist the team on the project in developing Co-space
applications for human motion replication and learning based on Unreal
game engine. The responsibility includes the development of 3D environment
for online Yoga learning, game design and programming, GUI, implementation
of motion replication algorithms, and building the interface with wearable
motion capture and haptic devices developed in our research group (IMU,
OLE sensors, vibrotactile unit, etc).

The candidate is required to have a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering/
Computer Engineering or related discipline, with experience in C, C++,
Windows and Linux system programming, game user interface design, and in
game design. Experience in Unreal game engine programming will be an added
advantage. The appointment is for 2 years with immediate hiring. The
commencing salary will depend on the candidate's qualification and experience.


Position 2:- Full Time Research Associate in Biomechanics Engineering

The candidate will take lead in a project on developing a cognitive stroke
therapy system through integrated wearable haptic devices. The responsibility
include the investigation and characterization of human functional movements
using wearable sensors, the use of vibrotactile devices for rehabilitation
applications, integration of wearable haptic devices with Continuous Passive
Motion Machines, and conducting experimental and clinical validation.

The candidate is required to have a bachelor degree (minimum) in Bio
Engineering/Mechanical Engineering or related disciplines, with knowledge
in biomechanics, biomedical sensors, wearable sensors, and instrumentations.
Experiences in clinical trials or lab user tests will be a plus. This is a
Singapore-Hungary joint research Project, so having good communication and
coordination capability is important. Applicants with Singapore Citizenship
or Permanent Residency are preferred. The appointment is for 2 years with
immediate hiring. The commencing salary will depend on the candidate's
qualification and experience.
