We are actively recruiting for a number of research positions. Watch this page for current and forthcoming available positions with CARES, the C4T research group, the CLIC programme, our joint project with Singapore-ETH Centre, Cities Knowledge Graph, as well as our smaller projects such as PIPS. 

 

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.

CLIC is a collaborative research programme between the University of Cambridge and NTU focused on improving support for lifelong learning and cognitive agility. The programme launched on 1 October 2020 and is looking to employ researchers from the fields of neuroscience, psychology, education and other related fields. 

Cities Knowledge Graph is an Intra-CREATE collaborative project under the urban systems theme. The project brings together expertise from Cambridge CARES and the Singapore-ETH Centre, established by ETH Zürich. This research aims to harness rapidly growing and diversifying data streams to improve the planning and design of cities. It will do so by developing an innovative digital platform, known as the Cities Knowledge Graph (CKG), designed to combine data and share knowledge about cities, and to inject new precision and responsiveness to static instruments of planning, such as the city master-​plan.

PIPS is an industry funded project under the Pharma Innovation Programme Singapore (PIPS) programme. The project aims to synergistically and strategically bring together public sector research capabilities and domain expertise of the pharmaceutical industry to enhance the productivity and operational efficiency within Singapore’s pharmaceutical sector through leveraging novel manufacturing technologies and data analytics.
