The Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) invites applications for the position of Research Fellow.


The Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) is a unique interdisciplinary Research Centre of Excellence (RCE), funded by National Research Foundation, Ministry of Education, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and National University of Singapore (NUS). Hosted by NTU in partnership with NUS, SCELSE is linking new insights from the life sciences with expertise from emerging technologies in engineering and natural sciences to understand, harness and control microbial biofilm communities.


We are seeking a creative, independent, and enthusiastic research fellow to investigate mechanisms of bacterial signaling and communication during lifestyle transition between planktonic and biofilm. The candidate will work with an integrated team of microbiologists, biochemists, cell biologists, and clinicians to define the mechanisms by which Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a Gram-negative pathogen, triggers a multitude of phenotypic adaptation, including motility, attachment, exopolysaccharide matrix production and antimicrobial resistance.
