The Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) at Nanyang Technological University seeks a Research Fellow to conduct interdisciplinary research towards providing a holistic understanding of tectonics, volcanoes, and the linkages between them, with a focus on the Southeast Asian Ring of Fire. We are particularly interested in candidates with a background in numerical modeling and/or data analytics.
EOS is a Research Centre of Excellence at Nanyang Technological University Singapore that conducts fundamental research on earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and climate change in and around Southeast Asia, towards safer and more sustainable societies. EOS maintains a regional network of geophysical observation stations in collaboration with neighbouring countries in Southeast Asia, that are supported by the EOS Centre for Geohazard Observations, as well as a Remote Sensing Lab (EOS-RS). Computational resources are available through a dedicated cluster and collaboration with the High-Performance Computing Centre of NTU. In addition, EOS hosts state-of-the-art analytical facilities for petrological and geochemical analysis, and a Community Engagement office that co-creates learning opportunities for a range of audiences to promote a safer and more sustainable future.
The candidate will work under the supervision of Prof Emma Hill and will collaborate with researchers from the ‘Integrating Volcano and Earthquake Science and Technology (InVEST) in Southeast Asia’ project, a 5-year project that aims to provide a holistic understanding of regional tectonics, volcanoes, the linkages between the two, and their cascading hazards and impacts in Singapore and Southeast Asia. We will be hiring a large number of research staff and students to work on this project, so it promises to be a very exciting time to join our team!
The successful candidate will help to identify and study links between the eight components of InVEST, which together investigate the geohazards of this region from a range of perspectives. We’re looking for a collaborative individual with a passion for learning, who would enjoy working with people from a wide range of disciplines – seismology, geodesy, geology, remote sensing, tectonics, volcanoes, risk, social science and history -- with a goal to connecting the dots between the components.
