Research fellow and research assistant positions at the National University of Singapore

The Department of Biological Sciences at the National University of Singapore

Opportunity: Research fellow and research assistant positions

Location: National University of Singapore, Singapore 

Duration: Full-time, initial contract of 1 year but with possibility of contract renewal (up to 3 years)

Description: The Department of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore invites applications for two Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions and one Research Assistant position for a four-year study of the impacts of climate change on tropical tree demography and forest dynamics, with a focus on (but not limited to) the primary forest and secondary forests in Singapore. Successful candidates are expected to support, develop and/or lead projects with the following broad themes: 1) Linking plant functional traits to seedling and adult tree demographic responses to simulated drought, 2) Using ecosystem demographic models to evaluate the impact of future climate change on forest structure, composition and biomass, and/or 3) developing demographic models that incorporate species responses to changes in micro- and macroclimate. 

Qualifications: Research fellow candidates should have strong written and communication skills, demonstrated ability to work in a team environment, expertise in (ecosystem) demographic modelling, hydraulic functional traits and/or the design of common garden experiments, an established record of research and publication in (tropical) tree physiology and/or forest demography. Research assistant candidates should have some research experience in any of the relevant areas. Candidates with either experimental or modelling background are encouraged to apply.
