Singapore Research Virtual Career Fair

The research sector in Singapore is relatively young but incredibly dynamic. Fuelled by a S$16.1 billion Science & Technology government budget for the period 2011 to 2015, Singapore aims to be one of the top research hotspots in the world and opportunities abound for bright and determined research and faculty talent. Register for the Singapore Research Virtual Career Fair to find out more!

The research community in Singapore is a thriving one, with 31,000 members and growing. Eminent international scientists work alongside local researchers who bring keen Asian insights to the table. In addition, the concentration of leading-edge research complexes located in close proximity to hospitals, science parks and advanced manufacturing centres have generated multiple synergies for Singapore's research focuses in biomedical life sciences, and physical science and engineering.

Furthermore, the co-location of laboratories and a policy of shared access to the latest equipment and most advanced technologies have ingrained a lively culture of knowledge sharing and collaboration across disciplines. The growth of interdisciplinary research is further encouraged by institutional support, access to funding and recognition for researchers who dare to break new ground. With the strong base of manufacturing sectors in Singapore ranging from pharmaceuticals, electronics, chemicals and oil and gas, there are also ample opportunities to translate research into tangible innovations.

Following a successful pilot in 2011, Contact Singapore is proud to present for the second year, the Singapore Research Virtual Career Fair to showcase the breadth of opportunities within Singapore's research and academia landscape. Let us link you up with top research institutes, world-class universities and leading corporate labs in Singapore that are actively recruiting faculty members, researchers and PhD holders with a minimum of 3 years work experience.
