We are seeking a full-time Research Assistant (RA) to undertake research on older people’s appropriation and needs in neighbourhoods under the LKYCIC Lee Li Ming Programme in Ageing Urbanism.

The Lee Li Ming Programme in Ageing Urbanism aims to bring together a pluri-disciplinary research programme that seeks to study population ageing and the city. Ageing is one of the major challenges faced by Singapore and cities around the world. Ageing and urbanisation are two key trends shaping cities of the future. Yet, comparatively little research has been conducted on ageing in the development sphere. This research will analyse and enhance the current understanding of older people’s appropriation and needs in the city, develop innovative designs and solutions to meet those needs, and disseminate theoretically rich but practical and context-specific frameworks for action.

The candidate should have the ability to analyse and research complex ideas, concepts and theories about population ageing and the city, apply appropriate methodologies and have experience of data collection and analysis including handling quantitative and qualitative data and reporting of research findings.

Duration: For 12 months, with possible renewal, to commence as soon as possible.

Essential Skills and Requirements:
- Minimum a Master degree in public health or social and behavioural sciences
- Demonstrated skills in literature searches and reviews
- Demonstrated experience with quantitative and qualitative research methods
- Demonstrated report writing skills to assist in the development of reports for various projects
- Excellent skills using Microsoft Excel, Word and Powerpoint
- Well developed communication (written, verbal and listening) and interpersonal skills
- Demonstrated time management organisational skills
- Evidence of interest in research with older people

Desirable Skills and Requirements:
- Related work experience in research involving population ageing and with older people
- Experience in assisting with preparation of grant applications, and/or journal articles

How to Apply:
Interested applicants are encouraged to send their application with subject heading – RA application – to Dr Anna Lane at email: anna_lane@sutd.edu.sg or +65 6434 8205, along with the following:
- Letter of interest addressing the position, skills and requirements
