*Research Engineer for Robotics
Social Robotics Lab, Electrical and Computer Engineering, National
University of Singapore 

Job Description: 
Autism assessment is currently made through behavioral observation. No blood
test or genetic screening is available although there is evidence of a
genetic link. This project proposes to investigate how robotics can be used
for assessment of autism in children. The assessments are used by clinicians
to obtain information about the child for use in the diagnosis and planning
of intervention for children with autism. Due to children’s affinity to
robots, the robots can serve as tools to elicit relevant
social-communicative behaviors that are important in the assessment and
diagnosis children with ASD. 

Prospective candidates recruited for this position (half year) would join a
team working with researchers from NUS, and collaborators from MOE and
autism school to develop and control the robot to elicit behaviours in
children with autism that may not typically emerge in spontaneous social
interaction with significant others based on multi-channels feedback. In
particular, the candidate would be responsible for the research and
implementation in 1) human-robot interaction for robotic intervention for
children with autism; 2) sensor fusion for autism assessments.


- Master degree with mechanical/electrical and computer engineering. 
- Excellent communicator, ability to work in team and learn quickly and
- Strong C / C++ programming skills. 
- Experience on robot development and operation system.
- Project management experience 
- Candidate who can start working immediately is more preferred
Remunerations will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Qualified candidates are invited to express their interest in applying the
position by sending us the following documentations to us by email:
srl at nus.edu.sg: 

1. Detailed CV (resume) including hardware/software skills.
2. Copies of recent representative publications (if any). 
3. Any other supporting documents that can display working experiences in
related areas.
