C4T Visiting Scientist Programme 

The C4T Visiting Scientist programme provides an opportunity for scientific researchers to spend time at CARES in Singapore.

We welcome applications from researchers around the world. You must be research-active in a relevant field, but do not necessarily need a university affiliation (industry or other public sector affiliation is also eligible). Please take a look at our C4T Research and Publications pages to see if your research interests line up with CARES’ work. Visiting Scientists are eligible to use the CARES lab facilities, where relevant.

Visiting Scientists are required to commit to:

– Spending between one and six weeks at the C4T facilities in Singapore.
– Giving at least one talk or seminar in Singapore during their visit. These will form part of the C4T seminar series and will be open to all CREATE researchers and other interested members of the Singapore research community.
– Collaborating with C4T members on relevant publications and other outputs. Where a publication emerges from the VS programme, the authors will be required to acknowledge the CREATE support received.


Funding and reimbursement

The Visiting Scientist Programme will cover flights, accommodation and reimbursement of receipted subsistence and local transport costs during the visit for the Visiting Scientist only.
