Leaders in Sustainable Food Innovation

The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) is a young and fast growing publicly funded University, home to 10000 students and 1200 staff. In 2024, SIT will be moving to a purpose-built state of the art campus in the heart of Singapore's Punggol Digital District, where academia and industry will be co-located in one of Singapore’s youngest communities. Dedicated to developing individuals and collaborating with industry to drive economic and societal impact, SIT aspires to lead in innovative workplace learning and applied research.

SIT encompasses five academic clusters - Business, Communication and Design, Engineering, Food, Chemical and Biotechnology, Health and Social Sciences and Infocomm Technology. As the third-largest autonomous university in Singapore by intake, SIT is expecting to grow their faculty size by at least 10% over the next few years.

SIT is seeking skilled research leaders in Sustainable Food Innovation who are enthusiastic about creating value through collaborative industry partnerships. Leveraging our cross-cluster synergies in Health and Social Sciences, Food, Chemical and Biotechnology, and Infocomm Technology as well as SIT’s Industrial Doctorate and Master programmes, prospective candidates can develop and elevate research programmes in food innovation. They will have access to SIT’s cutting-edge open innovation labs and infrastructure to contribute to impactful translational research. We invite passionate and dedicated leaders from academia or industry who share our vision of advancing industry-relevant research and education.
