You will pursue theoretical and applied research in one of our priority
research areas including design and development of novel micro/nano robotic
systems, self-assembling robots, artificial intelligence for human-robot
interaction, collaborative robotics and autonomy. You are expected to work
collaboratively across disciplines to develop innovative applications of
robotics and autonomous systems to key sectors such as healthcare, assisted
