1. Post-doctoral Research Fellow Positions at National University of Singapore on Learning Control of Semi-submersible Floatel under Shielding Effects

Job Place:

Robotics Research Lab/Social Robotics Lab, Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore

Job Description:

Demand by use of floatel system to do maintenance of aging FPSOs (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) is expected to substantially increase in the near future. To ensure the smoothness, safety and efficiency of operation between floatel and FPSO, constant relative position and orientation between the floatel and FPSO has to be kept. Controlling the floatel becomes challenging once we consider the large amount of shielding effects due to FPSO in the vicinity. The research project will develop robust adaptive learning control schemes to compensate the shielding effects on the floatel and design an appropriate robust dynamic positioning control system for floatel to counteract against the environmental load and also react to follow with FPSO low frequency yaw motion.

Prospective candidates applying for this position will join a team working with researchers from both NUS and the offshore industry to develop control algorithms and software packages to maintain the relative position of the floatel. In particular, 1) a robust adaptive control scheme to be developed to compensate for shielding effects on the floatel; 2) a high fidelity and efficient simulation software package to be developed to assist control designing and verification process, and provide understanding for actual implementation.

Qualifications:

  • Post-doctoral Research Fellow on Intelligent Control Design and Development

- Active, energetic and optimistic young researcher.
- PhD in with a background in control modelling and designing.
- Strong mathematics and good programming skills.
- Excellent communicator, ability to working in great team and learn quickly and enthusiastically.
- Project management experience
- Preferably working experience on software development and system integration in relevant subjects.  

  • Post-doctoral Research Fellow on User-friendly Dynamic Positioning Simulation Software Development
