Post-doctoral research fellow for Control System

Social Robotics Lab, Electrical and Computer Engineering, National
University of Singapore

Job Description:
Demand by use of floatel system to do maintenance of aging FPSOs (Floating
Production Storage and Offloading) is expected to substantially increase in
the near future. To ensure the smoothness, safety and efficiency of
operation between floatel and FPSO, constant relative position and
orientation between the floatel and FPSO has to be kept. Controlling the
floatel becomes challenging once we consider the large amount of shielding
effects due to FPSO in the vicinity. The research project will develop
robust adaptive learning control schemes to compensate the shielding
effects on the floatel and design an appropriate robust dynamic positioning
control system for floatel to counteract against the environmental load and
also react to follow with FPSO low frequency yaw motion.

Prospective candidates applying for this position (minimum of 1 year and
maximum 4 years) will join a team working with researchers from both NUS
and the offshore industry to develop control algorithms and software
packages to maintain the relative position of the floatel. In particular,
1) a robust adaptive control scheme to be developed to compensate for
shielding effects on the floatel; 2) a high fidelity and efficient
simulation software package to be developed to assist control designing and
verification process, and provide understanding for actual implementation.


- PhD in with a background in control modelling and designing.
- Excellent communicator, ability to working in great team and learn
quickly and enthusiastically.
- Strong mathematics and C / C++ programming skills.
- Preferably working experience on software/hardware development and system
integration in relevant subjects.
- Project management experience

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:
ELEXUZ at nus.edu.sg <http:///user/SendEmail.jtp?type=node&node=5711109&i=0>

1. Detailed CV (resume) including a list of publications.
2. Copies of recent representative publications.
3. Any other supporting documents that can display working experiences in
related areas.
