Four post-doc positions in embedded systems, security, verification, robotics and distributed systems – Singapore

Details of all available positions are also provided here:

I have immediate openings to host four (4) post-doctoral researchers.
Post-doctors are required to have a PhD degree (or soon to be awarded) in
computer science, computer engineering or related fields. All positions are
available immediately.

The project investigates systematic design of a class of
self-reconfigurable robots. It is an interdisciplinary project that
combines concepts from several research areas, including but not limited to
mechatronics, embedded systems, control theory, perception, system
security, system validation & verification, distributed systems and fault
tolerance.  As such, prospective applicants should have interest in such
interdisciplinary research agenda. All selected candidates will have the
opportunity to be part of designing real, physical robots that will be
deployed in Singapore for various services.  The designed robots will be
systematically validated for various performance and security-related

Concretely, I am looking for post-doctors in the following areas (all areas
are equally important):

1.     One (1) postdoc in Embedded Systems and/or control: The post-doc is
expected to have substantial research experience either in embedded systems
or in control theory or both. (S)he will contribute to the design and
validation of embedded control systems for the robot. This involves both
the theory and the implementation of embedded systems. Moreover, we expect
such embedded systems to be validated against certain pre-defined
performance constraints.

2.     One (1) postdoc in parallel and distributed systems: The post-doc is
expected to have substantial research experience in parallel and
distributed systems (theory and practice). Relevant experience may include
but not limited to research in networked embedded systems, distributed
systems and general-purpose graphics processing units (GPGPUs). The
selected post-doc will significantly contribute to develop the theory and
implementation of distributed robot network. Specifically, the efficient
implementation of message passing and fault tolerance will be crucial for
the design of distributed robot network.

3.     One (1) postdoc in Autonomy for robots: The post-doc is expected to
have experience in path planning for designing autonomous systems.
Additionally, knowledge of implementation challenges of path planning in
resource-constrained system is beneficial. The selected post-doc will
significantly contribute towards making the robots autonomous. (S)he will
also contribute towards the systematic validation and verification of such
autonomous systems, specifically targeting the validation of path planning

4.     One (1) postdoc in verification, formal methods and system security:
The post-doc is expected to have substantial research experience in one or
(preferably) more of the following areas: formal methods, verification,
system testing, system security, security for embedded systems. The
selected post-doc will significantly contribute to the theory and
implementation of the security-layer for robots. The security of any
service robot is crucial, as these robots are going to perform boring,
mundane tasks operating alongside humans in the future.  Hence, we will
integrate the security properties in these robots by design (and not
considering it as an afterthought). Moreover, we will rigorously validate
certain security properties to ensure the robustness and safety of deployed

Selected post-docs will be offered internationally competitive
remunerations and support to travel to conferences for communicating the
research outputs. Singapore is a vibrant city that has an excellent mix of
Western and Asian cultures. The city is well connected and is the center of
one of the best airports in the world. Employees in Singapore enjoy a low
tax-rate and the excellent facilities supporting research and technologies.

We request prospective candidates to commit for at least one year.
