Research Fellow/Research Associate/Research Engineer National University of Singapore, Faculty of Science (FoS) Singapore

Research Fellow/Research Associate/Research Engineer - 006Z9


Job Description

One of the focuses of this project is to design and develop an energy efficient integrated wireless sensor-actuator network (WSAN) for indoor environmental quality monitoring and control system with intelligent control algorithms that optimize Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ), energy efficiency and user satisfaction. System integration via deployment of the proposed WSAN with existing ACMV system, lighting, personal fans and air cleaning devices is also to be investigated to achieve the desired IEQ and thermal comfort down to the individual level.



We seek motivated Research Engineer candidates who are able to show a proven excellent record in research, and are ready to thrive in a dynamic, multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary team. The successful candidate should demonstrate a track record of delivering novelty in the field of multi-agent systems, control engineering, optimization algorithms, data analytics and data Mining.

The candidate is expected to be familiar with IEQ analysis, developing of occupant survey and conducting research on occupant behavior; and related analytics on how occupant satisfaction and perception of IEQ is influenced by the salient parameters (temperature, relative humidity, air movement, etc.).

The candidate should also demonstrate skill to design and develop apps for smart devices such as smart phone, tablet, PC, etc. on multiple open platform (Android, IOS and Windows).

In particular, we seek a person with the following skills:


  • Bachelor/Diploma in Electrical, Electronics, Computer, Mechanical, Energy Science, Building & Architecture Engineering with specialization in Control Systems/ Communication Systems/ Embedded Systems/ Computer Science/ Information System/ Environmental Monitoring
  • Relevant experience in the design, simulation, and implementation of data analytics and mining, intelligent multi-agent systems, multivariable control techniques and real-time operations
  • Knowledge of building and various IEQ control system (air-conditioning, ventilation, air cleaning and illumination), ASHRAE standards, Building Management System (BMS)
  • Experience developing in programming languages such as Java, Python, C/C++, MATLAB, SQL and Swift
  • Hand-on experience in open-source databases and software development of apps for different platform such as PC, handheld devices
  • Fluent verbal and written communications in English
  • Strong analytical and conceptual abilities
