Job Description

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore is recruiting a Research Engineer with a Civil or Mechanical Engineering background to pursue research in a funded project entitled “Enhancing Offshore System Productivity, Integrity and Survivability in Extreme Environments (ENSURE) – WP3B Integrity”.

In close collaboration with the research team on digital twin, the research aims to plant the integrity assessment capabilities into the digital twins, which represent digital replica of the physical assets on both the global structural scale and the local component scale. Integrating the sensing data from global and local structures, this integrity package allows accurate predictions of the global strength response and detection of local degradation of the asset in relation to condition-based monitoring to support predictive maintenance and fatigue life predictions.


  • Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree in structural engineering or related disciplines from a reputable university
  • Applicants should have fundamental knowledge in fatigue and fracture for large-scale structural components and sub-systems
  • Applicants should have laboratory experience in designing, conducting and instrumenting both the material specimens and large-scale structural specimens
  • Applicants should also have the basic knowledge and skills for nonlinear finite element analysis
  • Applicants should be able to converse well in English (both oral and written)
