Research Fellow (Earth Science)

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 Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) at NTU is a national science Research Centre of Excellence. Its mission is to conduct fundamental research on earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami and climate change in and around Southeast Asia, toward safer and more sustainable societies.


The Earth Observatory of Singapore, together with the Asian School of the Environment at Nanyang Technological University, is home to an array of state-of-the-art analytical instruments including EPMA, LA-ICP-MS, MC-ICP-MS, and FE-SEM, and collaborates with other analytical facilities worldwide.
We are exploring the possibility that the source crater of the Australasian tektite strewnfield might be buried beneath young volcanic provinces of Southeast Asia. Our approach is multidisciplinary and consists of several integrated field and laboratory studies being conducted in parallel.


We seek a Research Fellow with demonstrable experience in any of the fields of sedimentary petrology, stratigraphy, geochemistry, geomorphology, and/or planetary science. Candidates should have a broad knowledge base and prior field and laboratory experience.
The Research Fellow will collaborate closely with a small international team in a role of roughly half support and half independently-guided research.



PhD degree or equivalent experience in Earth or planetary sciences
Willingness to perform field work in a challenging environment (northern Southeast Asia)
Experience with mapping, GIS, and modest-sized geospatial datasets
Experience with granulometry or other quantitative characterization of sedimentary deposits
