Research Fellow (Paleo Sea-level)

The Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) and the Asian School of the Environment (ASE) at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore are seeking postdoctoral (senior research fellow and research fellow) positions to join the Singapore Government funded South East Asia SEA-level (SEA2) program. This is an international, multi-institutional and trans-disciplinary program that will push scientific frontiers to observe, reconstruct and model the regional processes of sea level from instrumental and proxy data. We invite applications for a Research Fellow (Paleo Sea-Level) to work with Asst Prof Aron Meltzner's team.


Duties & Responsibilities: 

Leading a research project in paleo sea level, in particular reconstructing changes in sea level and land level at multiple time scales over the Holocene, using geological proxy data
Write manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals based on these findings
Work collaboratively and interactively with the SEA2 team
Help oversee student research on related projects


Ph.D. in Earth science, environmental science, geology, or a related field
Minimum 5 years of field-based research experience in geological and/or environmental sciences
Strong expertise in using one or more geological proxies (foraminifera, salt marsh taxa, mangroves, sessile organisms, coral microatolls, etc.) to reconstruct past relative sea level
Demonstrable understanding of potential impacts of tectonics and/or glacial isostatic adjustment on relative sea level would be advantageous
Proficiency in Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe® Illustrator®, ArcGIS, and MATLAB® would be advantageous
Excellent communication skills, both written and oral
Demonstrated ability and enthusiasm for collaborative research, including helping to train students
Strong record of publication in related topics, including first-author papers published in peer-reviewed journals (at least one of these papers should be in an English-language journal)
