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 and our joint project with BEARS, eCO₂EP.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Cities Knowledge Graph is our newest research project, 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.

 

To apply for a position, please send your CV and cover letter (summarising the most relevant skills and experience that you have for the position) to recruitment@cares.cam.ac.uk.
