Job Description

The Department of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS), invites applications for a Research Fellow position in the research group of Assistant Professor Wang Hao.

The group is committed to bridging technological gaps in the advanced manufacturing field of ultra-precision machining by establishing fundamental physical phenomena observed in experimental works and numerical findings.

We are seeking a self-motivated candidate to enhance the quality of research in the fields of ultra-precision micro-/nano-cutting. He/she should possess interest in at least two of the following mentioned research areas: -

  • Micro-cutting of metals and brittle materials;
  • Phenomenological influences on micro-cutting performance; and
  • Post-processing of additively manufactured components. The Research Fellow will work closely with the Principal Investigator (PI) and supporting staff and student members on various research projects.

The job scope includes: -

  • Experimental research on single point diamond turning: -
    1. Machining process modelling, system setup and sample handling for secondary material characteristic analysis; and
    2. Collaboration with a strong research team in a wide range of topics in micro-manufacturing.
  • Applicants will be selected based on their research ability and language expertise. Preference will be given to candidates with a good publication and academic record.


  • PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a relevant area;
  • Good publication record in manufacturing/mechanical engineering journals;
  • Excellent command of written and verbal English;
  • Experience in micro-cutting of difficult-to-machine materials;
  • Experience in sample preparation and handling for post-cutting analysis;
  • Background in Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis.
