wuyangoh
The Robotics Department at the Institute for Infocomm Research, A*STAR, Singapore, invites applications for multiple research scientist positions in robot manipulation and HRI. We offer highly competitive remuneration, leave and welfare package which commensurate with the experience of each applicant. Details on each position can be found below.

Applications will be reviewed until the positions are filled. Interested applicants are requested to submit:
* A cover letter
* A curriculum vitae that includes the name, address and email of 2 referees
to wuy  (at) i2r.a-star.edu.sg as soon as possible. Shortlisted candidates will be notified through email for interview.

POSITION 1: Scientist (Compliant Human-Robot Collaboration)
============================================================================
JOB DESCRIPTION

You will be involved in some or all of the following tasks:
- Research and development of a task-based approach for robot to learn collaborative skills, such as object hand-over and human-robot co-manipulation of environment based on multimodal sensory information.
- System integration to deliver functioning modules on a humanoid robot or a mobile manipulator.
- Actively collaborate with other researchers in testing, experimentations, and trouble-shootings the robots during testing and real-world trial deployments
- Closely collaborate with other researchers to conduct research on multimodal perception, affordance understanding and dual arm manipulation
- Realization of algorithms developed into computational footprints that are suitable for deployment in robots, including optimizing the algorithms to allow for real time processing or deployment in an embedded processor

JOB REQUIREMENTS
- PhD in Computer Science or Electrical, Electronics, Computer, Mechanical or Mechatronics Engineering
- Possess background in relevant robotics field
- Proficient in programming skills (C/C++ and/or Python)
- Possess good analytical skills, innovative and proven track record in solving problems encountered in projects that are relevant to robotics
- Possess good interpersonal, presentation and communication skills
- Experience with ROS and/or YARP is an advantage

POSITION 2: Scientist (Motor Skills Learning and Dexterous Manipulation)
============================================================================
JOB DESCRIPTION

You will be involved in some or all of the following tasks:
- Research and development of new multimodal learning and control algorithms for grasping and manipulating objects and surfaces, yet safe to interact with human with force/tactile sensing fused with other sensor modalities.
- System integration to deliver functioning modules on a humanoid robot or a mobile manipulator.
- Actively collaborate with other researchers in testing, experimentations, and trouble-shootings the robots during testing and real-world trial deployments
- Closely collaborate with other researchers to conduct research on robotic affordance understanding, grasping and perception, including tactile perception technology to create new robotic capabilities
