Research Fellow (Ocean and Climate Modelling)

EOS invites applications for a Research Fellow in ocean modelling specific to coastal waters in (and around) Singapore. The candidate will examine the conduct high-resolution ocean model (ROMS) simulations to study past and future marine heatwave events in Singapore and examine their impacts on marine ecosystems. The position is a key component of the Marine Climate Chance Science (MCCS) Programme aimed at assessing the long-term viability of mangroves and coral reefs as nature-based climate solutions in Singapore. The Research Fellow will work in a multidisciplinary research team, including coral reef geomorphology, sea level studies, climate modelling, and sedimentology to understand the response of Singapore’s coastal and marine ecosystems to anthropogenic and climate change impacts.

Job Responsibilities: 

  • Set up and run high-resolution ocean model (ROMS) simulations to study past and future marine heatwaves in Singapore (and the wider SE Asia region)

  • Global climate model (e.g., CMIP6) data analysis related to the project goals

  • Handle data management and statistical analysis

  • Work effectively with colleagues from the project, and with local and international collaborators

  • Writing and publication of results in peer-reviewed journals

  • Presentation of research work in various forums (e.g., international conferences)

Job Requirements: 

  • PhD degree in oceanography, climate science, or a closely related field

  • Prior experience of working with ocean and numerical models (ROMS preferred)

  • Knowledge of ocean and climate dynamics within Indo-Pacific region

  • Experience in handling large climate datasets

  • Excellent knowledge of data analysis tools in climate science

  • Prior experience in publishing first-authored papers in peer-reviewed journals

  • Excellent oral and written communications skills in English

  • Ability to work independently
