Who are we?
We are the University of Cambridge presence in Singapore called Cambridge CARES 
(Cambridge Centre for Advanced Research and Education in Singapore) sponsored by 
the National Research Foundation (NRF) of Singapore as part of its CREATE 
program. Cooling Singapore 2.0 is an Intra-CREATE collaborative project. The 
project brings together expertise from Cambridge CARES and SEC (the Singapore-
ETH Centre, established by ETH Zürich), as the host institution of the project. 
The team is led by principal investigators from the University of Cambridge and 
ETH Zürich.

Energy consumption releases waste heat into the ambient environment, thus 
affecting the intensity and variability of the urban climate. Therefore, it is 
critical to have a better understanding of the interdependencies between 
environmental effects and energy systems. Jurong Island is the single largest 
energy consumer in the overall Singapore energy footprint, representing the 
largest hotspot on the UHI map of Singapore. In order to improve our 
understanding of the impact of Jurong Island’s operation on Singapore’s UHI map, 
the project aims to develop models to study the complex interactions between 
anthropogenic heat emissions and operating parameters for major industries on 
Jurong Island. We will also develop mitigation and adaptation solutions for 
major anthropogenic heat emitters via modelling to alleviate their impacts on 
Singapore’s UHI map. This is being realised through a comprehensive 
virtualisation of industrial operations, i.e. a hierarchical representation of 
data and models associated with every entity at different levels of granularity, 
in order to exploit synergies for resource, energy, and emissions savings. 
Through an ontological representation of data in a knowledge graph in 
combination with an eco-system of autonomously operating software agents, 
interoperability and automation in cross-domain applications will be achieved.

Our team is comprised of world-class scientists and engineers working in a 
vibrant, fast-paced environment with great opportunities for knowledge and 
skills development.

Who are we looking for?
The ideal applicant will develop models to study the anthropogenic heat 
emissions on Jurong Island and be involved in the development of the theoretical 
foundations as well as the wider, ongoing development of our knowledge graph and 
autonomous agent software. This will involve keeping abreast of the latest web 
technologies, making key design decisions, and ensuring their realisation. The 
specific research topic will fit into the above problem description. (Example 
publications can be found here.)

The successful candidate will be expected to:
•	Publish research results in high-quality international peer-reviewed 
•	Develop models to study the anthropogenic heat emissions on Jurong 
•	Develop CFD models to study the dispersion of anthropogenic heat 
emissions from Jurong Island.
•	Design, develop, test, deploy, maintain, and improve the software.
•	Make strategic decisions on complicated and ambiguous technical 

What skills do you have?
•	A PhD degree in a relevant discipline such as mathematics, computer 
science, (theoretical) physics/chemistry, (chemical or mechanical) engineering, 
or a related subject.
•	Experience with one or more general-purpose programming languages such 
as Java, Python, JavaScript, and C/C++, as well as version-control tools such as 
•	Experience with one or more process modelling software such as Aspen, 
•	Experience with one or more dispersion modelling software such as WRF-
•	A good publication record in at least one of the research areas 
•	Excellent oral and written communication skills.
•	The ability to work as part of a dynamic, multidisciplinary team of 

What can we offer you?

•	A stimulating working environment with friendly, highly motivated 
•	Opportunities to develop and implement new ideas in a creative 
•	A competitive salary in line with your skills and experience.
•	A one-year contract in the first instance, extendable following the 
satisfactory performance.
•	A comprehensive medical insurance cover as part of your employment.
