Positions are available for Post-doctoral Fellows and/or Research Assistants in the laboratory of
Dr. Siowling Soh, at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, National
University of Singapore (NUS).
The research in the laboratory is highly interdisciplinary. One focus of the lab involves designing
and fabricating advanced chemical systems using different types of functional materials, such as
responsive polymers, hydrogels, and particles. These functional materials can be coupled with
interesting reactions for creating “smart” chemical systems. A wide range of applications are
possible from this research (e.g., energy generation, drug delivery, and responsive mechanical
actuation). For controlled drug delivery, the objective is to build programmable and/or
customizable systems for personalized medicine.
The ideal candidates are preferably material scientists, chemists, chemical engineers, or
researchers in a related field. Candidates must have good hands-on skills in experimental work,
are independent in research, and have good problem-solving skills.
