Post-doctoral Fellow(s)

The Center is seeking highly enthusiastic, self-motivated, dynamic, and academically excellent candidates to fill several Post-doctoral Fellow positions in various related fields. ​

HKCRC is an innovation research center aiming to bring advanced robotics and AI technologies to the construction industry. Jointly established by Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), University of California, Berkeley (UCB), and Tsinghua University, we conduct transformative research and nurture innovative engineering teams to deliver innovative solutions and prototypes to tackle immediate and emerging industrial and societal challenges in construction.

Currently, the Center is conducting projects in but not limited to the following directions:
•    Robotics SLAM
•    Robotics Motion Control
•    Robotics Decision Planning
•    Machine Learning, Image Processing, Computer Vision
•    Multi Sensor Fusion (Visual, Lidar, IMU, etc.)
•    Robotics Mechanical Structure Design
•    Embedded System



The primary responsibility of the post-doctoral is to investigate and develop innovative solutions and prototypes in the field of construction robotics. The post-doctoral will also need to support project-based innovative engineering teaching and supervise course-based projects.



  1. A strong background in a related engineering subject (preferably in CSE, ECE, MAE, etc.) having completed a Ph.D. degree;

  2. Very strong problem definition and solving skills;
