Research Assistant at NUS Computing
National University of Singapore, Department of Computer Science



Applications are sought for a Research Assistant to work on A Disaster Management Project.


The ability to efficient and effectively respond to disaster situations is the cornerstone of recovery and reducing additional impacts from the situation. This project aims to develop a Prescriptive Analytics Framework for Resource deployment and optimisation in disaster management focusing on a data infrastructure that integrates relevant data, and a model to simulate and predict specific disaster situations to provide robust recommendations on how to coordinate resource deployment. Additionally, integration of a feedback loop will allow for continual refinement to ensure assistance and resources are delivered optimally. A behavioural analytics layer on the model will be able to account for human behaviour and reaction.


This project is a collaborative project between NUS, Institute of High Performance Computing, and several partners in Australia. The research assistant will investigate on the Data Modelling Framework and also on the simulation model for Disaster Management. It may involve collaborating with social science researchers.



Candidates should have a degree in Computer Science or related degree and be familiar with:

Data modelling and collection
Crisis Systems
Modelling and simulation
Agent-based systems & simulation
Experience in Human Behavior models will be useful
Candidates should be proficient in C++, Java, Python, and preferably some experience with Simulation models or packages.



Proficient in English (Speaking and writing)
Independent and highly motivated
Good interpersonal communications
Able to work in a team


Interested candidates, please write (with their c.v. attached) to A/P Gary Tan at
