- PhD/MSc position in Telerobotics: We are seeking highly motivated candidates to be involved in a variety of ongoing projects related to teleoperation and haptics. Background in control and mechatronic engineering or related disciplines is required. Hands-on experience with control systems and robot programming is a definite asset. Successful candidates will have a chance to contribute to several ongoing government and company projects and collaborate with leading universities and research agencies worldwide, which include Stanford University, German Aerospace Center (DLR), and others. Start date: September 2018. 

- PhD/MSc position in Soft (cable-driven) actuators for exoskeletons: we are also looking for highly-motivated individuals to be involved in design and testing of novel, cable-driven actuators and mechanisms and their successive integration into various areas which include exoskeletons, wearable robots, and human augmentation. Other projects include actuator integration into industrial and automotive applications and cable-driven robot manipulator design. In these projects, we are collaborating with both international commercial companies and leading universities around the world. Background in mechatronics and control or electrical engineering is required. Candidates with past hands-on experience with hardware design, system instrumentation, and integration are strongly encouraged to apply. Successful candidate will also have a chance to be affiliated with a startup company "BioRob" launched at KOREATECH in 2016. Start date: September 2018. 

If you are interested in the announced positions, please email the following documents to Prof. Jee-Hwan Ryu <jhryu at koreatech.ac.kr <mailto:jhryu at koreatech.ac.kr>>: (1) a CV outlining your experience and qualifications, (2) brief (up to 300 words) research statement, (3) transcripts of previous university degrees, (4) representative publications in electronic format, and (5) the contact information of three individuals who can serve as references. You will be contacted after your documents pass initial screening and your candidacy is found suitable for the position. Competitive salaries and national health insurance will be offered to the successful candidates.
