*Research Fellow and Research Associate positions at SIMTech*

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. 

*Research Topics*
The Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology, 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 
- Simulation and control software for industrial robots 
- Intuitive robot teaching 
- Industrial robot programming 
- 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 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 
- List of publications (for *Research Fellow* position)

Electronic submission of application should 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.
