Job Description

Riverine Sediment Load Responses to Climate Change in High Mountain Asia (HMA)

We intend to hire one full time Research Fellow for 1.5 years for a MOE (Ministry of Education, Singapore) funded project. This project aims to address a fundamental research gap in understanding of how climate change (e.g. increase in temperature and precipitation) affects the sediment load in the headwater rivers of HMA (namely in Himalayas, Tibet Plateau and Tianshan regions). Increase in temperature and precipitation will change slope and fluvial processes through altering the processes of glacier-snow-permafrost melting. 

The duties of the RF include: 
The Research Fellow will closely work with the project PI Professor Lu Xi Xi. The Research Fellow will conduct in-situ identifications of sediment sources and quantification of sediment fluxes in selected headwater regions of the large Asian rivers.  Special attention will be paid to runoff and sediment load attribution analysis in the cold environments with glacier-snow-permafrost. The relative impacts of temperature, precipitation, glaciers, and snow on sediment load will be examined through modeling hydro-geomorphological processes.

NUS is one of the top universities in Asia, and its geography department has recently been ranked as the 5th best in the world. This position offers an excellent environment for working with a highly skilled interdisciplinary team and will provide chances to collaborate with researchers at both national and international institutes. If interested, please contact Professor Lu Xi Xi, [email protected], for further details.  


The candidates must have a PhD degree in the relevant fields like geomorphology, hydrology and earth sciences. In particular the candidates with hydrological and sedimentological modeling skills in the high-altitude cold environments are encouraged to apply.  We provide competitive salary for the position with consideration of research background and previous working experiences.

Interested candidates should submit an application: a letter of interest with details of their research experience, interest and future plan (1-2 pages), a full curriculum vitae, contact information for three references and the PDF of your best paper (optional). For full consideration, please submit your application by 18 Aug 2022.
