The Temasek Laboratories at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) immediately invites applications for openings for Research Fellow positions in the areas of bio-inspired hybrid unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Researchers will work closely with a multidisciplinary team of scientists, designers and engineers to design and develop innovative nature-inspired unmanned aerial platforms featuring transformative capabilities to achieve enhanced flight envelope and performance.  Applicants can expect rapid results to build their body of work toward a future academic career in disciplines from mechatronics to controls.

This project involves:
*Conceiving, dynamic modelling and designing novel UAV platforms that are able to transform from between various flight modes.
*Devising and prototyping the materials, mechanical and electrical elements of the aerial system to achieve novel and unique transformation as well as efficient and highly maneuverable operations.
*Developing, implementing and evaluating advanced non-linear controllers as well as filtering/sensing algorithms unique to the platform.

Applications should contain a complete resume, cover letter describing their background, technical skillset, research interests and goals, full list of publications, copies of up to three relevant scientific papers, as well as the names and contact information of up to three references. These positions are guaranteed for a year and come with a competitive salary which is determined based on the applicants' research achievements, experience and qualifications. Please send applications to foongshaohui at sutd.edu.sg .

We offer highly competitive salary which is determined based on the applicants' research achievements, experience and qualifications. It is fixed-term and filled initially for 1 year with an option for extension for another year.
