Postdoctoral Researcher, Sustainable Integrated Districts


100%, Singapore, fixed-term

Dense and Green Cities: Emerging Models of Integrated Urban Development at the Singapore-ETH Centre Future Cities Laboratory Global is looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow to conduct and coordinate research on the systems performance dimensions of sustainable integrated districts with a focus on Singapore.


Project background


FCL Global is an international knowledge hub with the capabilities to conduct fully transdisciplinary and comparative research on the complex challenges of urbanisation. It builds upon FCL Singapore, which, since 2010, within the frame of the Singapore-ETH Centre (SEC), grew into one of the most impactful urban science research centres in the world. FCL Global innovates upon those foundations with the benefit of two distinctive regional perspectives: one from the tropics and another from temperate Europe, embedded at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH).

Dense and Green Cities: Emerging Models of Integrated Urban Development explores the development of sustainable integrated districts (SIDs) as a model for high-density high-liveability future cities through a series of case studies with a focus on Singapore and Switzerland to allow for an evaluation, comparison, and learning on how SIDs are best planned and realised in various settlement systems. The project captures important aspects of the urban planning and design, architecture, social, environmental, economic, and governance systems performances of SIDs systematically through a number of work packages and an interdisciplinary team of researchers that consists of urban planners and designers, architects, engineers, and scientists. The research is conducted in close collaboration with important stakeholders from the industry as well as from government agencies in both Singapore and Switzerland as well as in a number of other international locations.


Job description


Conduct research on the various systems performance dimensions of sustainable integrated districts as described above; coordinate the Dense and Green Cities research project and team at the Singapore-ETH Centre.


Your profile


Doctorate in Urban Planning, Architecture, Landscape Architecture or a related field; professional degree in Urban Planning, Architecture, Landscape Architecture or a related field; track record of excellence in research and in professional practice; excellent academic writing and communication skills.


Singapore-ETH Centre




The Singapore-ETH Centre provides a multicultural and interdisciplinary environment to researchers working on diverse themes focussed on sustainable and liveable cities, resilient urban systems, and patient-centric healthcare.
