Multiple post-doc job opportunities in the microbiology of the built environment: Human-Building Interactions and the Environment (Singapore)

Job posting regarding multiple post-doc positions in a multi-discliplnary project managed by the University of California Berkeley (UCB), Nanyang Technological University
(NTU), and the National University of Singapore (NUS):

Up to four postdoctoral scholar appointments are available for a joint new research program between the University of California Berkeley (UCB), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), and the National University of Singapore (NUS). The successful candidates will join a team of researchers funded for 5 years by Singapore’s National Research Foundation. The overall research program aims to create knowledge to improve energy efficiency and sustainability in buildings in tropical climates. We are recruiting candidates to staff Thrust 4: Human-Building Interactions and the Environment. The mission of this thrust is “to acquire information, create knowledge, and convey understanding to ensure that indoor environmental quality provided for building occupants is maintained or improved while energy efficiency gains are achieved.” Research will be organized along four themes: (1) HVAC system hygiene; (2) human factors for thermal comfort; (3) bioaerosols in tropical buildings; and (4) temperature and relative humidity effects on pollutant dynamics. The postdoctoral scholars will work directly with our faculty team including Bill Nazaroff (UCB), Victor Chang (NTU), Kwok Wai Tham (NUS), and Man Pun Wan (NTU). Most of the appointments will be based in Singapore at the new CREATE campus with world-class research facilities. A recent PhD and relevant expertise in the indoor air sciences are essential qualifications. The initial appointments will be for one year with possibility of renewal.

Applicants should send a cover letter describing their research experience and interests, a curriculum vita, and the names and contact information (including e-mail addresses) for three references to:

Prof. William Nazaroff
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
University of California
425 Davis Hall
Berkeley, CA 94720-1710 (email preferred).

Applications are being reviewed as received with an interest in early appointment. Intended start date should be no later than January 2013.
