3-yr post-doc position in Singapore (NUS)


New member
Postdoctoral (Research Fellow) position in Urban Climate Modeling

Invitation to apply
. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications for one Postdoctoral position in Urban Climate Modeling.

The project “Enhancements of Singapore’s convective rainfall prediction” will make use of meteorological models in combination with multivariate observations of rainfall to provide a high spatial and temporal resolution rainfall reanalysis product for Singapore and to study how climate change affects mesoscale convective rainfall processes, their statistical properties, and underlying physics. This will be done using physically based convection-permitting models and stochastic weather generators.

Qualifications. We are looking for a candidate with a Ph.D. degree (or conclusion expected within 2-3 months) in Atmospheric Science, Environmental Engineering, or Environmental Science preferably in the fields of Hydrometeorology, Climate Modelling, or related disciplines. The candidate should possess specific and broad knowledge of the use of Convection Permitting Models, such as WRF preferably in the urban domain. The candidate is expected to be a highly organized and proactive person and able to work both in a team and independently. Demonstration of innovative scientific results obtained during (and/or after) the Ph.D. and communication skills are important elements of evaluation. A proficient command of oral/written English is essential.

Responsibilities. The candidate will be responsible for completing the scientific tasks related to urban climate modeling in the project, leading and contributing to publications, and is expected to work closely with the other postdoctoral fellows and Ph.D. students who will be hired in the project.

The National University of Singapore is among the top universities in the world. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is also very highly ranked internationally. Further information on the Department is available at:
