Senior Research Fellow (Geochem Isotope)

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. We invite applications for a Senior Research Fellow with the following responsibilities:

Duties & Responsibilities: 

The successful candidate will operate and maintain a multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (MC-ICP-MS) and a sector-field high-resolution ICP-MS (HR-ICP-MS) for trace metal concentration and isotopic ratio measurements.
He/she will operate and maintain a metal-free wet chemistry laboratory for trace metal separation and purification.
He/she will train students, postdocs and visiting scholars on lab analytical techniques.
He/she will be involved in multiple research projects to use carbonate deposits (e.g., speleothems and corals) to reconstruct tropical hydroclimate change since late Pleistocene.
He/she will be involved in geochemical data interpretation, research paper and proposal writing.
He/she may need to conduct fieldwork in remote countryside.
He/she may need to operate a stable isotope ratio mass spectrometer (SRI-MS) for oxygen and carbon isotope analysis.


A qualified candidate should have a PhD degree with a major in geochemistry or related fields in geology, with at least 5 years of post-doc experience.
he candidate should have strong experience working in a wet chemistry clean lab for trace metal separation, and can independently operate and maintain mass spectrometers, including MC-ICP-MS and HR-ICP-MS.
He/she is also expected to have field experience and is familiar with paleoclimatology.
He/she should be good communication skills and has published scientific papers in high-quality research journals.

Interested applicants should send a CV, with list of publications (if any), and the names of three referees.
