Research Fellow (Sea-level rise)

The Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) is seeking a Research Fellow (Sea-Level Rise) 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. The successful candidate will work with Prof Benjamin Horton's team.

Duties & Responsibilities: 

Projections of future sea-level rise in particular probabilistic sea-level projections and local to regional components that drive sea-level rise.
Assess contributions to sea-level rise from ice sheets, regional atmosphere/ocean dynamics, vertical land motion and gravitational/rotational deformation.
Assist the team in the interpretation of complex statistical models and in creating visualizations of model output.


Ph.D. in Earth science, natural hazards, computational modelling, statistics or a related field
Experience with Bayesian statistical model development ideally with applications for time series data, spatial data and compositional data
Strong ability to interpret complex statistical models and creating visualizations of model output
