Join us

Thank you for your interest in our lab.

We will post openings on this page once available, but nevertheless whether you are looking for a full-time reseach position (postdoc, research assistant), a PhD, internship, a master thesis, or seek to carry out a research visit with us in Singapore, we’re always open to getting in touch with prospective staff and students who share our interests in GIS, urban analytics, 3D city modelling, and related topics.

Below you will find the list of potential schemes to work with us. If you find some of these appealing, please fill the form below or at this link to indicate your interest.

Fellowship opportunities for prospective postdocs and PhD candidates

We are open in endorsing well motivated applications for external (mostly postdoc) fellowships and scholarships that enable carrying out research at our lab. Please check the following opportunities in Singapore:

Depending on your nationality and university, there are many opportunities to fund your PhD or postdoc research at NUS and the Urban Analytics Lab, for example:

For a comprehensive list of opportunities please see the ECRcentral’s Funding schemes and fellowships for early career researchers. We gratefully acknowledge the authors behind the list, from which we compiled the selection above.

Carrying out a PhD research

Applications to the PhD programme should be done directly to the School of Design and Environment, but you may also first get in touch with us to discuss. The deadlines are usually 15 November for the intake in August next year, and 15 May for the start in January. Please start preparing your application early, and indicate in your application that you would like to work with us.

Sometimes there are scholarship opportunities by the school to partially or fully fund your PhD journey (please also check the list above). If applicable to you, please check the The Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future for another potential scholarship. Please note that most (external) scholarships require a candidate to be admitted to a PhD programme before applying for funding (e.g. providing letter of acceptance from the university). Thus we recommend starting as soon as possible.

NUS graduate students

We accept students from NUS Architecture and Real Estate to work on topics in our research domain. Provided there is a fit, we are open to working with students from other NUS schools and programmes (e.g. FASS/Geography).

Student projects and theses

Are you looking for a master thesis topic? Do you want to work with us to learn more about a particular topic in our domain? There are multiple opportunities:

Feel free to get in touch to learn more. Please note that these positions are not funded. Please fill this form to indicate your interest or just approach us directly.

Teaching assistant positions

We are involved in teaching GIS and urban analytics in master programmes at the School of Design and Environment. TA openings may be posted in future.

Visiting researchers: research visit

Please fill this form if you are interested in visiting us, regardless of the intended duration and your position. Depending on your country of residence and position, sometimes there are opportunities for a funded stay, such as the French-Singaporean research collaboration programme Merlion and the US Fulbright Program.

Non-NUS graduate students: master theses, PhD research, guest researcher arrangements

External (non-NUS) master and PhD students can carry out a portion of their research at our lab. Both students from other Singaporean and overseas universities are eligible. Please refer to the NUS Non-Graduating Programme for the framework of the scheme. Make sure to also check potential topics we offer for theses.

Current openings

As a new group, we’re working hard on attaining funding to start exciting new projects and to provide funded full-time positions. Please visit this page occassionally to check whether we succeeded. 💪
