Research Positions

The ARL is a somewhat unconventional research environment for NUS, in that we do very little undergraduate teaching, being 100% research. We are success and goal oriented, rather than task and process oriented. ARL staff enjoy a high degree of autonomy and are expected to be self-motivated and self-disciplined. Generally, we look for enthusiastic, pragmatic and responsible signal processors, acousticians, talented engineers, physicists and oceanographers with skills in at least some of the following areas:

  • Ambient noise and acoustics
  • Underwater positioning
  • Cooperative command & control and behavior of dynamic systems
  • Communication theory, with a focus on underwater communications & networking
  • Geoacoustics
  • Random signal processing and model-based filtering
  • Beamforming and image processing
  • Inversion, search & optimization techniques
  • Numerical modeling and simulation
  • Mechanical, electronics or software engineering skills

At present we do not have any vacancies that we are actively looking to fill. However, we are always keen to bring on-board enthusiastic electronic engineers, scientists and acousticians looking for a challenge. So if you are interested in a position with the ARL, keep an eye out for positions advertised on this page, or get in touch with us (email: with a strong reason why we should create a new position for you!
