Preference will be given to applicants with the following additional skills

  *   Extensive C/C++/Python skills
  *   Experience in robotic software development using ROS
  *   Experience with standard open-source robotics related software libraries
  *   Hands on experience with implementing/deploying algorithms on actual robotic systems and conducing field experiments
  *   Good verbal and written communication skills in English

Initial contract is for one year with a possibility of extension based on performance. An attractive remuneration based on the experiences and qualifications and a standard benefit package competitive with the industry will be provided for the successful applicant. Interested candidates please send your CV/Resume to Prof. Danwei Wang (edwwang at ntu.edu.sg)
