Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce a fully-funded PhD and a postdoctoral scholar position in the Asian School of the Environment and the Earth Observatory of Singapore, at Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore, under the research program entitled Sea-level and land-level change in Southeast Asia: A geological approach to quantifying hazard from rising seas and earthquakes.

Potential topics of focus include (but are not limited to):

* paleoseismology and paleogeodesy of the Sunda megathrust (in Sumatra, Indonesia)
* paleoseismology and paleogeodesy of the Manila trench (in Luzon, Philippines)
* sea-level and land-level change over the Holocene in Southeast Asia

For the PhD position, there are two intakes of PhD students annually, in January and in August. The deadline for the submission of applications is 31st January for the August intake, and 31st July for the following January intake. I will consider candidates for either intake in 2021, but preference will be given to candidates who contact me sooner rather than later. The PhD program lasts 4 years and is fully funded with a competitive stipend for the duration.

For the postdoctoral position, interested candidates should contact me as early as possible. The appointment will initially be for 2 years, and a competitive salary will be offered. Extension of the appointment may be possible pending satisfactory progress.

Prior to the formal application procedure, interested candidates are encouraged to send me their CV and a brief cover letter (roughly 200-300 words) describing how their research interests will tie in with those of my research group. I can be contacted at meltzner<at><meltzner<at>>.
