The CUHK C3 Robotics Laboratory and Centre of Robotic Construction & Architecture are looking for postdoctoral fellows in the development of robotic systems dedicated for the use of automated construction and architecture. The focus of the position would be on the development of new robotic systems, through the use of cable-driven and robot manipulators, which can increase productivity, increase safety and expand the implementation and design opportunities of building structures.

Examples of related projects include, "CU-Brick: automated brick construction cable-driven robot", "Robots for exterior facade operations of high-rise buildings", "Automated interior renovation robot systems" and "Robotic production of modular integrated construction components".

The appointee will work closely with Dr. Darwin Lau and his team within the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering. Work duties include: development of engineering and architectural solutions for the problems within the project, prototype and testing, project management and assistance in supervision of other team members.

Applicants should possess a PhD degree in the area of robotics or construction/architecture automation or related discipline. Experience with practical robotic systems, development of automation solutions and algorithms in the analysis and control of robotic systems are desired.

The position is on a one-year fixed-term basis with the possibility of renewal. A highly competitive salary, commensurate with qualifications and experience, will be offered in addition to annual leave, medical benefits and University contribution to a retirement benefits scheme. Hong Kong is an vibrant international city and is accommodating to English speakers.

Applicants should send an up-to-date CV, information on previous projects and reference/recommendation letters (if available) to darwinlau at cuhk.edu.hk.
