Job Details

The Asian School of the Environment (ASE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore seeks to appoint one Assistant Professor (tenure track) in Climate Science. We broadly welcome applications across all areas of tropical climate research. This can include, but is not limited to, atmospheric observation, tropical urban climate, and regional to global scale climate modelling.

ASE (https://www.ntu.edu.sg/ase) is a diverse, interdisciplinary school that integrates geoscience, ecology, and social science in order to examine environmental challenges in Asia and globally. ASE collaborates closely with the Earth Observatory of Singapore, and with the other schools and colleges in NTU. ASE has state-of-the-art teaching facilities and research laboratories, including environmental geochemistry laboratory, sediment and ecology laboratory, general-purpose laboratories, and high computation resources. Beyond NTU, ASE researchers can access facilities at the Singapore National Supercomputing Centre.

ASE seeks a diverse and inclusive workforce and is committed to equality of opportunity. We welcome applications from all and recruit on the basis of merit, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, marital status and family responsibilities, or disability.  

Applicants must have a PhD in atmospheric science, earth science, environmental science, or a related field, and show evidence of impactful, independent research in the field of climate science. We will consider a candidate’s past outputs, current research programme, likelihood to obtain future funding support, enthusiasm and potential to develop their own research leadership in tropical climate science. Past research experience in tropical climate dynamics is advantageous, but not essential.  

The successful candidate should demonstrate the potential to build a world-class research programme and a commitment to education and mentorship of students, and to meaningfully contribute to our ambitions to have societal and environmental impact in Singapore and the surrounding region. The successful candidate will be encouraged to collaborate with existing research groups across NTU, Singapore, and Southeast Asia.   

The successful candidate will also teach within ASE at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Emoluments and General Terms & Conditions of Service
The commencing salary is competitive and will be commensurate with the candidate's qualifications and experience. The University offers a comprehensive fringe benefit package.
