Research Fellow (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics)

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 invites applications for Research fellow\Senior Research Fellow position in geophysical fluid dynamic studies of volcanic eruptions and explosions. The successful candidate will work in a vibrant scientific department, participating in research deployments of high-end scientific instrumentation. The candidate will work under the supervision of Assistant Professor Benoit Taisne with a team of international scientists to experimentally model and study the magma transport in the volcanic conduit and dykes. We seek a Research Fellow with demonstrable experience in the field of experimental fluid dynamics both in physical modelling and measurements. We would prefer someone with experience with Particle Image Velocimetry and in depth knowledge of fluid dynamics and turbulence. The successful candidate will work with the Volcano team to model the magma flow during transport and eruption in the laboratory.

The successful candidate will have completed a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (hydraulics), Fluid Mechanics or a related field from an accredited university with a keen interest in Geophysical fluid dynamics and will ideally have several years of post-Ph.D experience. He/She should have extensive experience with (1) physical (analogue) modelling of fluid dynamics in the laboratory; (2) carrying out measurements in turbulent two phase gas\liquid flows with Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) technique; (3) experience with application of high speed cameras, synchronizations, image acquisition and processing (4) demonstrate enthusiasm, great team work, good communication, an ability to problem solve, and an ability to conduct independent research; (5) academic record of published research in high quality journals related to his\her field of research with a strong background knowledge in fluid dynamics modeling and measurement. The successful candidate will have very strong English and communication skills, both in written and oral forms. Applicants are invited to submit a detailed CV and the names of 2 referees to eos_humanresources@ntu.edu.sg
