Join us to innovate next-generation agriculture!

We are always looking for talented future colleagues. We have vacancies for highly motivated postdoctoral fellows, graduate students (Master's and PhD), and visiting students/researchers. Candidates with background in chemistry, chemical engineering, plant science, and nanotechnology are preferred. See below for details.

          Opportunity for Postdoctoral Fellows

There are a few projects for postdoctoral fellows in the area of plant nanosensors, nanocarriers, polymer synthesis, RNA-sequencing, wearable technologies, and bioimaging. We are looking for candidates with:

  • PhD degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science, Plant Biology, or related fields

  • Experience in nanomaterial or biomaterial synthesis

  • Experience in bioimaging, such as confocal and fluorescence microscopy, is preferred but not required

Interested candidates should send Prof. Lew ( with your CV (including a publication list), a brief research summary, and contact information of three references.

           Opportunity for PhD and Master's Students

Interested prospective graduate students should directly contact Prof. Lew ( with up-to-date CV and transcripts (unofficial is ok). Students with strong interest in smart materials and plant nanotechnology are welcomed to apply. Candidates should have a Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in chemical engineering, chemistry, materials science, life sciences or related fields. We highly recommend candidates to consider scholarships available at NUS and the local ecosystem (click here for the full list, or see below) if they are eligible.


             Opportunity for Visiting Students / Researchers 


We are always excited to host visiting PhD students and researchers with relevant background. Interested candidates should send their CV and transcripts (unofficial is ok) to Prof. Lew (
