Research Fellow, Environmental Microbiology/Biotechnology/Engineering/Environmental Sciences
The National University of Singapore is looking for a postdoctoral research fellow to study rhizosphere biology and above-below ground processes in tropical peatlands as part of a project that seeks to understand the mechanisms of decomposition and revegetation of peat in Southeast Asia. The position is within a multi-disciplinary research team consisting of postdoctoral research fellows, research assistants, as well as principal investigators (PIs) from the Department of Biological Sciences, Geography and School of Computing. The successful candidate will be expected to design and execute integrative field studies in consultation with the PIs, supervise a research team, analyze the data and lead the writing of scientific publications as well as project reports. This position involves field work in SE Asia.
We seek a highly motivated applicant with a PhD in rhizosphere biology, above-below ground ecology/biology or related fields and an established track record of publications. Prior experience in the field is a pre-requisite. The ideal applicant should also possess strong organizational, communication, and data analysis skills, be able to work extremely well with others in a collaborative team environment and be culturally sensitive. The position is based in Singapore, but the applicants for the field-based positions must also be willing to spend time at field sites situated in remote parts of SE Asia.
