2)	Background in automation, electrical/electronic engineering, mechanical
engineering, computer science etc. are expected. Demonstrated research
experiences in robotics would be a plus (e.g. good publication record or
equivalent experiences). 
3)	Proficient oral and written English;
4)	Highly motivated, cooperative and passionate on robotics.
5)	Applicants interested in hardware development:
•	Proficiency in mechanical design using 3D model softwares (e.g.
Solidworks/ ProE/ CATIA/ UG).
•	Capability of operating a wide range of manufacture systems, e.g. 3D
printer, CNC, laser-cutting machine.
•	Substantial hardware and experimental experience is strongly preferred.
6)	Applicants interested in software development:
•	Proficiency in using general simulation softwares and programming
languages, e.g. Matlab/ C/ C++/ C#.
•	Basic knowledge of control algorithms and data processing.
•	Experience in practical implementation. 
•	Experience in real-time/intra-operative medical image processing or
relative areas is preferred.
       

*Working Condition*
1)	Supported by PGS (Postgraduate Scholarship), around 15000 HKD/month.
2)	Outstanding research environment.
3)	Cutting-edge and challenging research projects for medical applications.
4)	Sufficient funding support.
5)	Corporation opportunities with universities, hospitals and industrial
companies, e.g. Harvard Medical School, Imperial College London, King’s
College London, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital
(HK), Prince of Wales Hospital (HK).
