A Research Fellow position is currently available in the Asian School of the Environment (ASE). We seek candidates who will thrive in an interdisciplinary environment and have a genuine interest in working on the topic of informal settlements in Asia-Pacific. The research laboratory on resilient and inclusive cities at the ASE addresses important challenges related to rapid urbanization and climate change in Asia-Pacific. A key feature of urbanization in Southeast Asia is the prevalence of informal settlements, raising the question of the adequacy of nature-based solutions in these urban areas. The goal of this research project is to co-create new knowledge on how nature-based solutions may enhance climate resilience in informal settlements in Asia-Pacific. The position provides opportunities for the candidate to explore new research areas and pursue their own interests within the scope of the Resilient and Liveable Cities research program, while expanding their professional network in Singapore and internationally. Assuming travel restrictions ease in the upcoming months, the position offers travel opportunities to support field work and expand collaborations in Asia-Pacific – in particular in Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
