Computer Scientist / Software Engineer for Cooling Singapore (100%)

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. The centre serves as an intellectual hub for research, scholarship, entrepreneurship, postgraduate and postdoctoral training. It is home to a community of over 100 PhD, postdoctoral and Professorial researchers working on diverse themes related to sustainable cities and resilient infrastructure systems. In the course of their work, researchers actively collaborate with universities, research institutes, industry, and government agencies with the aim of offering practical solutions. SEC is currently leading the Cooling Singapore project. The Cooling Singapore Project is an interdisciplinary project carried out between ETH Zurich, TU Munich, MIT and NUS. The project is dedicated to reducing the urban heat island and improving the outdoor thermal comfort in Singapore. The project’s outcomes have the potential to influence the wellbeing of citizens of Singapore. The project aims to develop a decision support system (DSS) for the web-based Virtual Singapore platform to help government agencies and planning authorities assess optimal strategies for cooling Singapore, in a holistic, systematic and interactive way.
