Duties

The appointees will report to the Project Leader and the Centre Director or his designate (currently Program Manager), and perform research and related work in the development of electrical and electronic modules with sensing and AI algorithms used for health monitoring of electronic systems.

For the post of Postdoctoral Fellow, the appointee will be required to:

  1. prepare literature review on the manufacturing process and testing requirement of electronic assemblies;
  2. design experiments as required in the health monitoring of modern electronic systems;
  3. develop feature recognition algorithms and create simulation models for different defects in the interconnections of the electronic assemblies;
  4. prepare and publish relevant research papers in high-tier peer-reviewed journals; and
  5. perform any other duties as assigned by the Centre Director or his delegates.


For the post of Research Associate, the appointee will be required to:

  1. conduct literature search on the manufacturing process and testing requirement of electronic assemblies;
  2. make prototypes and set up experiments as required in health monitoring of electronic systems;
  3. study feature recognition algorithms and simulation models for different defects in interconnects of the electronic assemblies;
  4. prepare relevant technical reports; and
  5. perform any other duties as assigned by the Centre Director or his delegates.


Qualifications

Applicants for the post of Postdoctoral Fellow should have a doctoral degree in Product Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Electrical/Electronic Engineering or related disciplines, or an equivalent qualification in a related field. They should have a good publication record.

Applicants for the post of Research Associate should have a master’s degree in Product Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Electrical/Electronic Engineering, related disciplines.

For both posts, applicants should also have:

  1. Good understanding in the manufacturing and assembly of prototypes for printed circuit boards (PCBs)/electrical and electronic components or devices; and
  2. Experience in design of experiments, or failure analysis of electrical and electronic components will be an advantage; and
  3. Basic knowledge of machine learning, and
  4. Good interpersonal and communication skills; and a good command of written and spoken English.

Fresh graduates are also welcome.

Applicants are invited to contact Prof. Lam Kin-man Kenneth at email kin.man.lam@polyu.edu.hk for further information.
