CARES C4T project

C4T is CARES’ main research project. We employ researchers from chemical engineering, biotechnology, chemistry, biochemistry, information engineering, materials science and metallurgy to work on lowering the carbon footprint of Singapore’s chemical industry.

 

Academic

Research Engineer (new): We are looking for a research engineer to work on a new nanomaterials synthesis project. The successful applicant will develop systems for automated synthesis of nanomaterials using continuous processes. This work will be conducted with a small team of scientists and engineers within Cambridge CARES and A*STAR for two years, with the goal of commercialisation. See more

Computer Scientist: The project aims at a comprehensive virtualisation of an industrial park, i.e. a hierarchical representation of data and models associated with every entity in the industrial park, in order to exploit synergies for resource, energy and emissions savings. The overall goal is to use ideas from Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, the Semantic Web, machine learning and statistics to create an expert system capable of providing quantitative decision support to stakeholders, planners and policy makers. See more

Software Developer: We are looking for a talented and creative computer scientist, computer engineer or computational mathematician to support the C4T research team. The post holder will build data models, visualise data in a modern media lab, develop software systems, perform data integration and participate in research discussions with local industries and partners. See more

Senior Software Developer: We are looking for a talented and creative computer scientist, computer engineer or computational mathematician to support the C4T research team. Primarily, we are looking for an individual dedicated to physics- and chemistry-based and data-driven modelling, semantic representation and visualisation of chemical processes and industrial networks of an industrial park.

eCO₂EP project

eCO₂EP is a CARES-hosted project that aims to develop a table-top chemical factory for the reduction of CO₂ to other chemicals that are useful in the chemical industry supply chain. Our team is comprised of world-class scientists and engineers working in a vibrant, fast-paced and milestone-driven environment with significant opportunities for knowledge and skills development. eCO₂EP is a joint project between CARES (University of Cambridge), BEARS (University of California, Berkeley), National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University. Staff are based in the CARES office, CREATE Tower, Singapore.

No current vacancies.

Studentships

Cambridge CARES hosts PhD students from our partner institutions (University of Cambridge, National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University). If you are interested in completing your PhD through Cambridge CARES, please get in touch with us at cares@hermes.cam.ac.uk.

Internships

C4T occasionally hosts internships (usually for undergraduate or graduate students studying a Chemical Engineering or Engineering programme). If you are interested in applying for an internship with us, in the first instance please send your CV and a brief description of why you are interested in an internship with C4T to cares@hermes.cam.ac.uk.

 

Current internship opportunities:

Engineering Internship: We are looking for a third or fourth year student to work on a nanomaterials synthesis project for a minimum period of three months. The intern will assist engineers in the development of an automated platform for nanomaterial synthesis. Possible projects include 3D printing of laboratory equipment, nanoparticle synthesis or application development in antimicrobial coatings. see more

Chemical Engineering Internship: We are looking for a third or fourth year Chemical Engineering student to work on our J-Park Simulator project. The successful applicant will develop mathematical systems/models for the chemical industry and utilities companies, create semantic representations of data, models and algorithms, and design and develop executable programs and browser based applications. see more

Programming Internship: We are looking for a third or fourth year student to work on our J-Park Simulator project. The successful applicant will develop mathematical systems/models for at least two typical processes on Jurong Island, create semantic representations of data, models and algorithms, and design and develop executable programs and browser based applications. see more
