[jobs] Multiple positions available at CRI Group, NTU, Singapore

Stéphane Lallée
Sorry for the off yarp-icub topic.
I'm circulating some job offers from a robotic group in Singapore. No iCub there but it may interest people on this list.

Dear colleagues,

CRI (Control-Robotics-Intelligence) Group is a young and dynamic
research group recently established at NTU, Singapore. We conduct
research at the frontier (in both meanings of the word) of robotics,
control theory and human motor control, see our webpage
http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/cuong/research.html

We currently have 2 Research Fellows (postdoc) positions and 1
fully-funded PhD position available. The position descriptions are
below. We look forward to receiving your applications!

Best regards,
Cuong


=========================================================

*Research Fellow position (2 years)*
*Dexterous Manipulation for Fine Robotic Assembly*

Fine assembly tasks (e.g. in the electronics, shoes, food industries)
are still out of the reach of today’s industrial robots. The main
challenges lie in the unstructured environments, the soft/fragile
materials of the parts to be assembled and the difficulty in controlling
contact interactions. This project aims at tackling these challenges in
order to make robots capable of handling those fine assembly tasks in
industrial contexts. In particular, we shall develop the theoretical and
technological framework to (i) integrate 3D perception, tactile
perception and compliant control using cheap, off-the-shelf components
combined with usual position-controlled industrial manipulators, (ii)
plan dexterous bi-manual manipulation based on motion planning with
dynamics. We propose to evaluate the manipulation capabilities of the
robotic system obtained at the end of the project on the task of
autonomously assembling an IKEA chair.

*Requirements*

We are seeking candidates with a PhD in Mechanical/Electrical
Engineering or Robotics. A strong background in Motion Planning,
Control, Manipulation and good programming skills are required.

*About the position*

The research will be conducted at the Control-Robotics-Intelligence
(CRI) Group http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/cuong/ and should start early
2015. Remunerations will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Interested candidates are invited to send a CV and three of their most
significant publications to cuong@...


=========================================================

*Research Fellow position (2 years)*
*Application of Robot Motion Planning to Air Traffic Management*

Air traffic is expected to keep rapidly growing in the next years both
globally and in the Asia-Pacific region. Avoiding traffic congestion and
reducing fuel consumption are thus some of the top priorities of Air
Traffic Management. The aim of this project is to help tackle these
problems by optimizing the 3D trajectories and coordination of aircraft.
This problem is difficult because of the nonlinearity of the constraints
and optimization objectives and the high dimensionality of the search
space when a large number of aircrafts are involved. We propose to use
algorithms from Robot Motion Planning (RMP). RMP is a highly mature area
of robotics research, which has been successfully applied in many
industries. We shall apply and extend powerful RMP methods, such as
sampling-based RMP, to the context of ATM.

*Requirements*

We are seeking candidates with a PhD in Robotics, Operational Research
or Computer Science in general. A strong background in algorithmics is
required.

*About the position*

The research will be conducted at the Control-Robotics-Intelligence
(CRI) Group http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/cuong/ and should start in April
2015. Remunerations will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Interested candidates are invited to send a CV and three of their most
significant publications to cuong@...


==================================================

*PhD position (4 years, starting August 2015)*
*Sensing, planning and control for Construction robotics*

The objective of this PhD is to design hardware and/or algorithms
(depending on the interests of the student) for Construction robotics in
the widest sense.

*Requirements*

We are seeking candidates with a Master or Bachelor degree in
Engineering (Mechanical, Aerospace, Electrical, Computer Science,
Biomedical), Physics or Mathematics.

*About the position*

This position will be funded by an NTU Research Scholarships
(http://admissions.ntu.edu.sg/graduate/scholarships/Pages/ResearchScholarship.aspx)
and should start by August 2015.

Interested candidates are invited to send a CV and two of their most
significant publications (if applicable) to cuong@... preferably
before January 15th 2015.
