The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Centre for Autonomous Systems, Faculty of Engineering & IT is recruiting for two Research Engineers to conduct funded robotics research projects. The incumbents will be responsible for undertaking research-based tasks and technical duties specific to these projects.

The Research Engineers will have strong experience in the areas of robotics, mechatronics, control, software development and/or mechanical design and may be required to act as a team leader in the development of practically deployable robotic systems.

Main duties / responsibilities:
-              Design and manage the development and manufacturing of mechatronic systems, and specialized equipment for experimental work.
-              Software and/or control system development and implementation.
-              Management of field testing and trials, both in research and commercial environments.
-              Design and development of mechanical components as part of the robots, or to test the robots.
-              Design and development of custom embedded electronic circuits.
-              Project management to ensure that projects are being run within the scope of the assigned budget.
-              Provide assistance to undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Main skills / experience required:
-              Demonstrated skills and ability to develop robotic systems, software and/or control systems.
-              Advanced knowledge of relevant disciplinary areas, including robotics, mechatronics, mechanical engineering, software engineering, and/or control.
-              A Bachelor's degree, or above, in mechatronic engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer systems, or a related discipline;
-              Evidence of a high degree of understanding of mechatronic and mechanical engineering principals.
-              Critical thinking and high level analytical skills;
