*Scientist and Research Engineer positions at Singapore Institute of
Manufacturing Technology*
 
/Mechatronics Group, Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology, Agency
for Science Technology and Research/
 
*Background*
 
Industrial robots have been widely employed for repetitive, but mainly
non-continuous contact type operations such as material handling, spray
painting, and spot welding. Recent advances in robotics technology have
opened up opportunities to employ industrial robots for more challenging
tasks such as high- precision edge, surface finishing, welding of complex
components  operations, which are often encountered in the precision
engineering, aerospace, and marine industries.
 
The  Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology
<http://www.simtech.a-star.edu.sg/>  , a research institute under the Agency
for Science Technology and Research, is inviting applications for a number
of Scientists and Research Engineer positions in the following areas of
robotics:
 
-       Mechanism design for robotic modules and manipulators
-       Control of robotic modules and systems
-       Active compliance, variable stiffness and passive dynamics 
-       Accuracy enhancement methods and systems
-       Intuitive robot teaching
-       Industrial robot programming
-       Simulation and control software for industrial robots
-       Robotic finishing
-       Robotic welding 
-       Robotic ultrasonic inspection
 
*Job Description*
 
Candidates applying for these positions will join a team of researchers
looking into enhancing the existing capabilities of industrial robots
through the research, design and development of new robotic modules, add on
systems, and software architecture to tackle these new challenging tasks.
 
*Qualifications*
 
-       For Scientists positions, applicants must have a PhD degree in
Mechanical / Electrical / Electronics / Computer Engineering
-       For Research Engineer positions, applicants must have a Master’s or
Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical / Electrical / Electronics / Computer
Engineering
-       Able to work effectively and independently in a team
-       Fresh graduates are welcome to apply
-       Relevant training and/or research experience in industrial robotics
such as robot kinematics and dynamics.
-       Preferably proficient in programming / CAD / CAE
-       Preferably with experience in robotic system design and integration,
motion and force control of robotic manipulators
 
*Application Instructions*
 
Qualified candidates are invited to express their interest in applying for
the above positions by sending us the following documentations in PDF to us
by email:
 
-       Cover letter indicating clearly the position applied for and the
area of interest
-       Detailed Curriculum vitae
-       List of publications (for Scientist position) 
 
Electronic submission of application is encouraged and can be sent to :
MCH_enquiries at simtech.a-star.edu.sg  
 
Short listed candidates will be notified to submit letters of
recommendations and additional documents. 
 
We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
