Research Fellow

The Additive Microstructure Engineering Laboratory in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NTU (Singapore) is a young, diverse, and interdisciplinary research group with interest in metal microstructure control using additive manufacturing processes (AddME Lab). We use a custom-made, selective laser melting (SLM) printer equipped with a special laser source and in-line monitoring apparatuses.

We seek a highly motivated individual Research Fellow to work on understanding and controlling the solidification processes during SLM using our printer.

Key Responsibilities: 

  • Investigate the solidification of SLM-produced metals and metal alloys using the AddME Lab printer
  • Devise new strategies to control the microstructure of these materials
  • Assess the mechanical properties of the newly produced materials


  • A Doctoral Degree in Materials Science and Engineering or a related field
  • Excellent knowledge of solidification of metals
  • Characterization of 3D printed metal alloys (X-ray, electron microscopy, optical microscopy)
  • Prior knowledge of mechanics and mechanical testing of structural materials
  • Excellent level of spoken and written English
  • High quality publication record in relevant journals

We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
