Opening for Full-time Research Engineer Positions in

ROBOTICS RESEARCH CENTRE
NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY, SINGAPORE
(http://rrc.mae.ntu.edu.sg/Pages/Home.aspx)

The Robotics Research Center (RRC) in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological Univ (NTU) is strengthening its R&D capability in innovation and deployment of robotic solutions based on the needs of public and private sectors in addition to our fundamental research in robotics. The major focus of robotics R&D projects in RRC are in healthcare, infrastructure/construction, and manufacturing. Together with industrial partners, we carry out R&D works in robotics ranging from TRL (Technology Readiness Level) 4 to 7, which eventually lead to spin-off companies and technology licensing to the industry.

We are seeking highly motivated individuals with the following qualifications to join our centre for this golden era of robotics.
