Research Position in Electrical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral position in computer science at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for 5 years in Singapore. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible.

We are seeking a strong and motivated candidate for the position of Research Fellow in the area of Cyber-Physical Systems, with research focus on automatic synthesis of code for embedded controllers and cyber-physical interfaces, as well as trace-driven root cause analysis. This work will enable the development of a cyber-twin, which represents various processes of a factory in a smart manufacturing environment. This position is part of a corporate lab initiative involving NTU and Delta Electronics, a leading electronics manufacturing company. The expected start date for the position is August 2017, and the expected duration of the position is 2.5 years. Remuneration will be attractive and commensurate based on the qualifications and suitability for the project.

The candidate is expected to have a PhD degree in Computer Sciences, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or related fields.

1. Experience with code synthesis techniques for embedded devices, including I/O interfaces for cyber-physical and cyber-cyber interactions.

2. Techniques for trace-driven analysis of embedded code for root cause failure analysis.

Experience in both design as well as implementation of technologies for cyber-physical systems is highly desirable. The candidate will be responsible for the integration of developed cyber-twin into the existing software tool chain used in smart manufacturing systems. The position is expected to provide an excellent opportunity to perform translational research in close collaboration with industry.

Project Overview: With sensing technology becoming pervasive in manufacturing plants, large amounts of data are being generated in real-time. As a consequence, there is a fundamental need to effectively utilize this "big data" so that many of the desired objectives of Industry 4.0 such as predictive maintenance, agile manufacturing and re-configurability, can be realized. The concept of a cyber twin to transform big data into meaningful information about the plant has a wide range of applications. The cyber twin can be viewed as an accurate and time-synchronized characterization of the physical plant in the cyber domain.

In this project, we propose to develop a model-based design and deployment framework to realize the concept of a cyber twin. Model-based design enables the use of correct-by-construction methodology to generate code for both the physical plant controllers as well as the cyber twin, thus ensuring the accuracy of the twin as well as its compatibility with plant controllers. Motivated by the idea of synchrony hypothesis, the project aims to develop a tool suite with the following objectives: 1) Plant and controller model specification and simulation to characterize the cyber twin, and 2) Automatic model-to-code transformation for controller and cyber twin synthesis.

The candidate is expected to have a PhD degree in Computer Sciences, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or related fields.

1. Experience with code synthesis techniques for embedded devices, including I/O interfaces for cyber-physical and cyber-cyber interactions.

2. Techniques for trace-driven analysis of embedded code for root cause failure analysis.
