Research Fellow 3D Geological Modeling - Earthquakes/Volcanoes

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 Earth Observatory in Singapore (EOS) at NTU Singapore is a national science Research Center of Excellence. Its mission is to conduct fundamental research on earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami and climate change in and around Southeast Asia, toward safer and more sustainable societies. The successful candidate will work in a vibrant scientific department, participating in research on active faults and earthquakes around Southeast Asia.

We invite applications for a Research Fellow with demonstrable expertise in application of geophysical and 3D geological modeling to participate in research on the connections between tectonics, earthquake processes, and volcanism around Southeast Asia. The candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Kyle Bradley and will collaborate closely with other Principal Investigators in the Tectonics and Volcano groups at EOS, to better understand the physical interconnections between faults and volcanoes in this region through construction of 3D geological models of closely related fault-volcano systems. Experience with 3D modeling techniques that integrate observations from waveform seismology, crustal magnetic, gravity, structural geology, rock mechanics, is preferred. Candidates with strong experience in earthquake or volcano geology will also be prioritized. Research will focus on volcano-fault interactions of the Lesser Sunda Arc, including the 2018 Lombok, Indonesia earthquake cascade, but will likely extend to other regions of interest.

Duties & Responsibilities: 

  • Construction of realistic 3D geological models that integrate a wide variety of data
  • Building new conceptual links between crustal-scale tectonic faults and arc volcano processes
  • Development of 3D modeling workflows that utilize the 3D Visualization Lab at the Asian School of the Environment
  • Managing and maintaining the ASE 3D Visualization Lab and promoting 3D modeling/visualization development
  • Working closely with volcanologists, seismologists, and geologists at EOS and partner institutions
  • Interpretation and publication of results


  • Ph.D. in Geology, Geophysics, Volcanology, or a related field.
  • Experience with 3D modeling of complex geological systems OR significant experience with volcano or earthquake geology and baseline technical expertise sufficient to support 3D modeling initiatives.
  • Enthusiasm, good team work, good communication, the ability to conduct independent research and write papers, leadership
  • Demonstrated research interest and expertise in earthquake or volcano geology


  • Applicants are invited to submit a detailed CV, statement of interest (up to 1 page), and the names of 2 referees. Review of applications will begin immediately. We regret that only successful candidates will be informed.
