The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the National University of Singapore is actively seeking a Research Fellow to contribute to a groundbreaking research project. This research explores the wave attenuation capabilities of coastal vegetation under three-dimensional, combined wave-current flow conditions. The goal is to develop innovative, physically based models that quantify the protective benefits a vegetation meadow can offer to shorelines.
This research aligns with Singapore's recently launched coastal research programme, which emphasizes the incorporation of nature-based solutions in coastal defense strategies.
The research fellow will work with Assistant Professor Gary Lei from Civil and Environmental Engineering at NUS. Ideally, we are interested in candidates with a track record of high-impact peer-reviewed journal publications related to the abovementioned topics and demonstrating prior experience with laboratory experiments and numerical modeling.
- Possess a Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or a closely-related field.
- Have a track record of high-impact peer-reviewed international journal publications related to the topic mentioned above, and demonstrate prior experience with laboratory and field experiments/ data analysis/ theoretical modelling.
- Priority will be given to applicants who have prior research experience in coastal engineering, environmental fluid mechanics, and hydraulic engineering.
- Strong verbal and written communication skills.
- Open to fixed-term contract.
