You lead research and sensing efforts to study Singaporeans' sense of national identity, rootedness to the country, and commitment to defence, and make data-driven recommendations for National Education and Total Defence policies.
On this, you lead the team in using information from a variety of sources to understand the perception, attitudes, beliefs and values of different segments of the population on National Education and Total Defence-related issues.
This includes studying public responses to local and global developments. You also work with various government agencies to design and conduct research studies to complement existing data.
With the information, you develop frameworks and models to shape and improve Whole-of-Government policies and engagement efforts.
Your challenge lies in making sense of a large amount of seemingly disparate information from diverse sources, and using appropriate data visualisation and analysis techniques, to generate useful insights for policy-making.
With new research and analysis technologies emerging at an increasingly fast pace, you also need to constantly look out for new tools to conduct effective data analysis.
You must have a tertiary qualification in sociology or behavioural psychology, preferably with 6 years' relevant work experience in behavioural psychology or behavioural research.
You should be proficient in statistics and data analysis, possess strong analytical, problem solving, and communication skills, and a keen interest in current affairs.
