Young and research-intensive, Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) is ranked 11th globally. It is also placed 1st amongst the world’s best young universities. The Earth Observatory in Singapore (EOS) at NTU Singapore is a national science Research Center 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 successful candidate will work in a vibrant scientific department, participating in research on active faults and earthquakes around Southeast Asia.
We invite applications for a Research Fellow with demonstrable expertise in application of geophysical and 3D geological modeling to participate in research on the connections between tectonics, earthquake processes, and volcanism around Southeast Asia. The candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Kyle Bradley and will collaborate closely with other Principal Investigators in the Tectonics and Volcano groups at EOS, to better understand the physical interconnections between faults and volcanoes in this region through construction of 3D geological models of closely related fault-volcano systems. Experience with 3D modeling techniques that integrate observations from waveform seismology, crustal magnetic, gravity, structural geology, rock mechanics, is preferred. Candidates with strong experience in earthquake or volcano geology will also be prioritized. Research will focus on volcano-fault interactions of the Lesser Sunda Arc, including the 2018 Lombok, Indonesia earthquake cascade, but will likely extend to other regions of interest.
