Research Fellow

You are here

Asian School of the Environment is currently looking for a candidate to join them as a Research Fellow.

We seek to recruit a recent PhD graduate to develop stochastic models for catastrophic risk analysis. The candidate should have a strong background in methods from stochastic modeling and inference, Markov chain Monte Carlo (including Metropolis-Hasting and Gibbs Sampling), structural and performance-based engineering analysis. Knowledge of remote sensing and earthquake risk analysis would be helpful. The candidate will conduct advanced data analytics with Python, R and/or Matlab. The candidate will work on various projects related to disaster risk analysis in the Asia region. Some travel will be required.

Requirements:

  • PhD in Structural Engineering or related field
  • Skills: Probabilistic methods in natural hazards risk analysis; stochastic inference; performance-based engineering analysis; remote-sensing; programing (preferably Python, Matlab or R)
  • Excellent communication and scientific writing skills

Interested applicants are invited to submit a full CV, list of publications, and the names of at least two referees to: ase_humanresources@ntu.edu.sg
