Young and research-intensive, Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) is ranked 13th globally. It is also placed 1st amongst the world’s best young universities.

The Asian School of the Environment (ASE) at NTU seeks to hire an environmental microbiologist as part of a terrestrial and marine initiative in Southeast Asia. ASE, an interdisciplinary School, focuses on Asian environmental challenges integrating Earth systems, environmental life sciences, ecology, and the social sciences to address key issues of the environment and sustainability. Strong interdisciplinary links between ASE and the Singapore Centre on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE), the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) and the Complexity Institute provide an excellent community for tackling large, cutting-edge research questions. Successful candidates will also contribute to development and execution of new undergraduate programmes.

We seek a creative and cutting-edge environmental microbiologist exploring microbial diversity and activity in natural systems and their implications on ecosystem functions and services. The successful applicant should have a clearly defined interest in addressing research questions in Southeast Asia. Research interests may include but are not limited, to microbial physiology, environmental virology, bacterial genetics and diversity, microbe-host interactions using tools such as genomics and metagenomics amongst other areas.

The candidates are expected to:
• Establish a world-class research programme
• Enhance the new School’s visibility as an international leader in education and research in Environmental Earth System Science
• Teach undergraduate and graduate classes in Environmental Earth System Sciences
• Actively collaborate with NTU faculty and researchers with existing strengths in Earth Systems Science and Environmental Life Sciences
