The research laboratory on Resilient and Inclusive cities at ASE addresses important challenges related to rapid urbanization and climate change in Asia-Pacific. It focuses on understanding and modelling the benefits of nature-based solutions – e.g. urban parks or peri-urban forests, road trees, green roofs – in the region to inform policy and practice, and create more resilient and inclusive cities. The program builds upon an interdisciplinary approach, combining geospatial modeling of urban environments and empirical studies of urban practice.
We are looking for a new postdoctoral research fellow with the following responsibilities:
Lead a new research project on modelling nature-based solutions for flood risk and urban heat mitigation in Southeast Asian cities
Review recent literature, curating data, and producing regional guidelines for nature-based solutions modelling in cities, based on several in-depth case studies
Support ongoing and future research projects examining the potential of nature-based solutions to improve resilience in Singapore and regional case studies (including the role of informal settlements in rapidly-urbanising areas, and in informal settlements)
PhD in Environmental Sciences, Environmental Engineering or equivalent (candidates without a PhD will not be considered)
Experience in environmental modelling
Experience or strong interest in nature-based solutions in urban environments
Good command of GIS software and relevant modelling software (e.g., R, InVEST)
Strong record of publications (commensurate with research experience)
(Preferred) Work experience in the Asia-Pacific region.
