The Yard Productivity Enhancement Project of Keppel-NUS Corporate Laboratory based at the National University of Singapore, Faculty of Engineering, invites applications for postdoctoral fellow and research engineer positions in the areas of robotics, automation, control, instrumentation and welding processes.  The research team will focus on the development of novel productivity improvement solutions for shipyard.   One of the projects will be the development of novel automated welding system for complex high tensile steel structure which typically requires manual multiple welding passes for each joint.

Relevant experiences or skills in one or more of the following areas will be a plus:


1.      Path planning and obstacle avoidance for industrial robots

2.      Teaching methods for industrial robots

3.      Mechatronics system integration

4.      Real-time sensor-based weld seam tracking

5.      Computer language programming and GUI creation

6.      Welding automation/Welding processes

7.      General mechanical design/Fixtures design

We offer competitive remuneration package which commensurate with the experience of each applicant.  PhD degree will be required for the postdoctoral fellow positions whereas Bachelor or Master degree in relevant disciplines will be required for the research engineer positions.  All positions are for a period of up to 3 years with possible extension till 5 years.  For applicants who are not based in Singapore, the estimated start date of the employment will be around 3 months from the date of offer acceptance.  There is a possibility for the team members to be hired by Keppel Corporation as a permanent staff after the project.
