The C4T Visiting Scientist programme provides an opportunity for distinguished members of the international research community to spend time collaborating with CARES researchers in Singapore.


– Anyone from a CARES C4T programme may nominate a Visiting Scientist. These individuals can be post-doctoral level to senior level researchers.
– Visiting Scientists must be research-active in a relevant field that aligns with our C4T programme. 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 do not necessarily need a university affiliation – industry or other public sector affiliation is also eligible.
– We welcome nominees from around the world and accept nominations year-round.

Note: If you are interested to participate in the Visiting Scientist Programme but do not have a host within the C4T programme to nominate you, please get in touch with Olivia ( using the same application instructions below and indicate which CN or programme member you would want to collaborate with.

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.
