*Research Fellow and Research Associate positions at Singapore Institute of
Manufacturing Technology*
  
/ Mechatronics Group
<http://www.simtech.a-star.edu.sg/themes/industrial-robotics.aspx>  ,
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 *Research Fellow* and *Research Associate* 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 3D Additive Manufacturing
 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 *Research Fellow* positions, applicants must have a PhD degree in
Mechanical / Electrical / Electronics / Computer Engineering 
 For *Research Associate* 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
