The SUTD-MIT International Design Centre at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) immediately invites applications for openings for Postdoctoral Fellow and Research Engineer position in the areas of medical mechatronics, instrumentation and robust design. Researchers will work closely with a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, designers and engineers to design and develop an innovative real-time tracking system for monitoring and verifying insertions down in the nasogastric pathway.

This project involves:
*       Devising and implementing a real-time, accurate multi-DOF tracking/ localization system for precise placement of invasive instruments in the human gastrointestinal tract using passive magnetic fields,
*       Developing a novel algorithm and sensing scheme to that incorporates robustness and redundancy,
*       Conceiving and prototyping a smart gear, containing embedded sensory electronics, for robust magnetic localization, and a phantom torso and gastrointestinal tract model for experimental validation and testing.

Applications should contain a complete resume, cover letter describing their background, technical skillset, research interests and goals, full list of publications (Postdoctoral position), copies of up to three relevant scientific papers (Postdoctoral position), as well as the names and contact information of up to three references. These positions are guaranteed for a year and come with a competitive salary which is determined based on the applicants' research achievements, experience and qualifications. Please send applications to shao at sutd.edu.sg<mailto:shao at sutd.edu.sg>  and uxuan_tan at sutd.edu.sg<mailto:uxuan_tan at sutd.edu.sg>

We offer highly competitive salary which is determined based on the applicants' research achievements, experience and qualifications. It is fixed-term and filled initially for 1 year with an option for extension for another 2 more years. Singapore possesses a low income tax and typically a post-doctoral fellow pays an income tax of a maximum of 15% (http://www.iras.gov.sg/irasHome/page04.aspx?id=1190).

The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) aims to become the centre and stronghold of global research and breakthroughs through creative technical research and education anchored in design within a multi-disciplinary approach. SUTD and SUTD-MIT International Design Centre offers students, researchers, and faculty a vibrant design centered research landscape and numerous venues for research collaboration with leading universities and research centers
