ASSISTANT/ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR IN PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY/Tropical Environmental Change research cluster, Singapore
ASSISTANT/ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR IN PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY
The Department of Geography at the National University of Singapore is seeking to add a physical geographer to its Tropical Environmental Change research cluster. The appointment will be made at Assistant Professor level (tenure-track) or Associate Professor level (tenure-track or tenured). The appointee will contribute to teaching, research and administrative duties.
The broad focus of the Tropical Environmental Change research cluster is temporal and spatial interactions of climate, water and landscapes at low latitudes, particularly in the Asia-Pacific Region. This focus takes advantage of our physical location in Asia and recognizes the many contributions that physical geographers routinely make in improving understanding of tropical environmental processes and their importance to global change, as well as the physiographic consequences of rapid development, land-cover transformation, and climate variability.
Candidates with research emphasis on hydro-geomorphological processes, biogeochemical cycles, climate science, or tropical environments in general are particularly encouraged to apply. Strong skills in GIS, remote sensing, environmental modelling, and/or geochemical analytical analysis would be an advantage. All applicants should have an established research profile in line with that expected for one of the top universities in the world.
Applications should include a letter of interest stating teaching and research interests, brief curriculum vitae (10 page max), names and contact details of 4 references. Please provide teaching evaluation information if available.
