Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology, Agency for Science
Technology and Research/
 Precision Mechatronic Systems forms the core backbone of all demanding
applications/industries from printable flexible electronics using
Roll-to-Roll system, to 3D Additive Manufacturing of precision functional
parts, and wafer inspection and handling in the Semicon industry. The
challenge in precision mechatronics has always been fast, accurate and
cheap; which is aptly demonstrated in Roll-to-Roll system as our innovations
in this domain enable the manufacture of precision components on films.
Personalization and high-mix low volume are two trends accelerating the
development in 3D Additive Manufacturing while developments in the Semicon
industry represent the epitome of precision. 
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* positions in the following areas of *Precision
 Web registration and alignment analysis, design and implementation in 
Roll-to-Roll system 
 Stiffness analysis and variable stiffness mechanism design for 3D Additive
Manufacturing and thin wafer handling 
 Ultrasonic techniques for thin wafer handling 
 Mechanism design for multi-axis positioning and alignment 
 Flexure-based nano-positioning stages design and control 
 Modal-based high-speed and high-precision motion control 
 System dynamics analysis and vibration control 
 Thermal effect modelling, prediction, and compensation 
*Job Description*
 Candidates applying for these positions will join a team of researchers
looking into creating/improving capabilities of precision mechatronics
system in the most advanced, challenging and promising domains. This is
achieved through a holistic mechatronics design approach involving research,
innovation and development of mechanisms, actuations, sensing and control.  
 For *Research Fellow* positions, applicants must have a PhD degree in
Mechanical / Electrical / Electronics / Computer Engineering 
 Able to work effectively and independently in a team 
 Fresh graduates are welcome to apply 
 Preferably with experience and knowledge in the precision mechatronics
 Experience in development of precision stages (either academic or
industrial) is highly desirable 
Relevant training and/or research experience in industrial application
particularly in Roll-to-roll web handling system, 3D Additive Manufacturing
or Wafer handling are highly desirable 
*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
 Detailed Curriculum vitae 
 List of publications 
 Electronic submission of application should be sent to:
