Multiple positions are available at the Nanyang Technological University
(NTU), Singapore, within the Rolls-Royce at NTU Corporate Lab in the context of
'Impedance Control for Industrial Finishing Tasks'.

Force control strategies are currently being applied to industrial finishing
tasks. Although effective in many polishing tasks, force control becomes
less adequate in finesse finishing, e.g. edge-finishing for aerofoil, which
still relies on expert human operators. From this perspective, we wish to
investigate the benefits of impedance control to finesse finishing tasks and
possibly devise ad-hoc end-of-arm tooling to implement such schemes.

Multiple positions are available IMMEDIATELY at Research Fellow (postdoc)
and Research Associate (Ms degree holder) levels. An NTU PhD scholarship is
also made available for the August 2015 in-take.

The ideal candidates should have demonstrated experience in robotics, in
particular impedance control, possibly with the new generation of compliant
robots. While a solid background in control is expected, experimental
experience robotic systems involved in contact tasks would be highly
preferred.
