The Singapore - ETH Centre (SEC) was established as a joint initiative between ETH Zurich – the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and Singapore’s National Research Foundation (NRF), as part of the NRF’s CREATE campus.


We are seeking a motivated Postdoctoral Associate to join us to conduct research in urban heat island (UHI) and thermal comfort in the highly urbanized and industrialized city of Singapore. The candidates are expected to participate in ongoing studies targeting UHI and urban environment modelling and UHI mitigation strategies in the mesoscale, to analyse the numerical results, and to perform other relevant duties when necessary (e.g., prepare datasets for modelling input and paper writing).

The position will be based at the Singapore-ETH Centre (SEC), with collaboration with other CREATE entities (SMART, TUM-CREATE, and NUS).

The expected starting date is November 2019. The initial appointment is one year, renewable depending on funding availability and satisfactory performance.


- An earned PhD degree (or final year PhD student) in environmental/mechanical engineering, meteorology, physical geography or related fields is required.
- Knowledge of urban climate, urban micrometeorology and thermodynamics is required.
-Basic knowledge and hands-on experience of at least one scripting/computer language (e.g. Matlab, python, C/C++, Fortran) is required; proficiency of Linux operating environment is an advantage.
- Capability/hands-on experience of mesoscale models (e.g., Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) with urban canopy model) in urban thermal environment simulations.
- Some knowledge of geographical information system (GIS) will be an advantage.
- Ability to work independently as well as in a team.
- Strong oral and written communicating skills are required.
- Experience in multidisciplinary research projects is an advantage.

Interested applicants must submit their full CV/resume cover letter and a list of three references (name and contact information). We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.


We look forward to receiving your online application including the following documents: cover letter, curriculum vitae, portfolio (if any),  and  the  name  of  two references, to (Lea Ruefenacht)
