Young and research-intensive, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is ranked 11th globally. It is also placed 1st amongst the world’s best young universities. The Earth Observatory in Singapore (EOS) is a national Research Centre of Excellence. Its mission is to conduct fundamental research on earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and climate change in and around Southeast Asia, toward safer and more sustainable societies. The Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) and the Asian School of the Environment (ASE) at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, seek up to two (2) postdoctoral scholars (research fellows) with demonstrable expertise in applying geological methods to investigate neotectonic, paleoseismic, geomorphic, or sea-level problems to participate in research on coastal uplift, subsidence, and relative sea-level change in Southeast Asia.
The candidate(s) will work under the supervision of Assistant Professor Aron Meltzner as part of the Geology of Earthquakes and Sea Level team, and will collaborate with other members of the Tectonics and Climate groups in the Earth Observatory of Singapore, to evaluate tectonic and sea-level hazards at sites across the region. Our work is heavily field-based, and we have sites in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines; however, ongoing travel restrictions resulting from the global pandemic may prevent access to some sites in the foreseeable future, and candidates should be open to working in any of the aforementioned countries.
