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, 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 this form to indicate your interest.
We will soon post a list of potential master thesis and student project topics.
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:
NUS Fellows Programme (Southeast Asia) - a programme designed to attract bright young faculty members (or would-be faculty members) and researchers from ASEAN universities and research institutes to NUS for a 6 to 12-month fellowship. NUS provides accommodation and a monthly stipend. Applicants must either be citizens of an ASEAN country or must be residing in an ASEAN country at the time of application.
Lee Kuan Yew Postdoctoral Fellowship - prestigious postdoc fellowship for up to 3 years. The scheme is open to nationals of all countries.
Depending on your nationality and university, there are many opportunities to fund your research at NUS and the Urban Analytics Lab, for example:
The Rubicon program of the Dutch Research Council (NWO) offers a fellowship for postdoc abroad for recent PhD graduates from a university in the Netherlands. You may also be interested in the Niels Stensen Fellowship.
The Swiss National Science Foundation has a similar fellowship.
Spanish citizens may benefit from the La Fundación Ramón Areces, which offers scholarships to carry out research work in universities or research centres abroad.
The Branco Weiss Fellowship awards young researchers around the world with a generous personal research grant, giving them the freedom to work on whatever topic they choose anywhere in the world, for up to five years.
Permanent residents of Hong Kong SAR may want to check the Croucher Fellowships for Postdoctoral Research.
The Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future program provides fellowship awards for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) from developing and emerging countries to pursue a PhD or a postdoc abroad.
AXA Fellowships are for researchers who completed a PhD degree up to 5 years before the application.
For a full 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.
Sometimes there are scholarship opportunities. If applicable to you, please check the The Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future for another potential scholarship.
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
Do you want to work with us to learn more about a particular topic in our domain? There are multiple opportunities:
- Student projects - you will be assigned a project and provided with supervision.
- We offer supervision of master theses (topics will be announced soon). It is possible to adapt them to suit your background and interest.
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.
Teaching assistant positions
We are involved in teaching GIS and urban analytics in master courses at the School of Design and Environment. TA openings may be posted in future.
Please fill this form if you are interested in visiting us. Depending on your country of residence, sometimes there are opportunities for a funded stay, such as the French-Singaporean research collaboration programme Merlion.
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. 💪
