FULL PROFESSORSHIP IN ECOLOGY

Young and research-intensive, Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) is ranked 11th globally. It is also placed 1st amongst the world’s best young universities.

The Asian School of the Environment  (ASE) at NTU Singapore (NTU; www.ntu.edu.sg) seeks a Full Professor in Ecology as part of a targeted initiative to expand terrestrial and marine science in Southeast Asia. The Asian School of the Environment is a new interdisciplinary School that focuses on Asian environmental challenges. The School integrates Earth systems, environmental life sciences, ecology, engineering, humanities, and the social sciences to address key issues of sustainability and the environment.

We seek an internationally prominent ecologist who works in terrestrial, freshwater or marine systems at the community and/or ecosystem levels and has a particular interest in conducting research in Southeast Asia. The new position in ecology will complement the newly developed linkage between the ASE and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in forest ecology, the Observatory of Singapore’s core strengths in Earth systems science, the Singapore Centre on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering’s expertise in microbial communities, and the Complexity Institute’s research in coupled human and natural systems.

For this position, NTU seeks a scientist with an outstanding track record in the field of tropical forest, freshwater or marine ecology. The successful candidate will help establish the School as a leader in studies of ecological and ecosystem processes in the region.

The candidates are expected to:

• Establish a world-class research program,
• Play a leading role in the expansion of the School,
• Enhance the School’s visibility as an international leader in education and research in Ecology and Ecosystem Science,
• Teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Ecology and related Environmental Sciences,
• Actively collaborate with NTU faculty and researchers with existing strengths in Ecology, Earth Systems Science and Environmental Life Sciences

NTU offers highly competitive salaries as well as comprehensive benefits, including subsidized on-campus housing and childcare. A start-up package, state-of-the-art research infrastructure, and a yearly research allowance for positions and consumables will be available.

Please send requests for further information to David Wardle, Smithsonian Professor of Forest Ecology (david.wardle@ntu.edu.sg).

Applications, including a research, teaching, and outreach statement, a résumé, and contact information for three professional references, should be sent to the ASE-Ecology@ntu.edu.sg

Review of applications will begin on 27 November 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.
