As Singapore is one of the most water-scarce countries in the world, water management is critical.
The Public Utilities Board recently commissioned the National University of Singapore’s Department of Biological Sciences to develop a lentic macro-invertebrate biotic index for the island’s waterways, with an emphasis on shallow tropical lakes. This will now complement the extensive water quality sampling regime already in place.
We are seeking three Research Assistants and/or Laboratory Technicians to assist a team with monitoring freshwater invertebrates in Singapore. The candidates should have either a polytechnic diploma or degree in biology or a related subject, field experience and preferably a Singaporean driving licence. Experience in ecological sampling protocols and/or freshwater macro-invertebrates would be advantageous. However, full training will be provided ‘on-the-job’.
The posts are initially for six months with a likely possibility of longer-term employment depending on the performance on the job and/or progress of the project. Positions are available immediately.
Interested candidates are invited to send their CV to Dr Esther Clews at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The closing date for applications is Thursday 29th October. Interviews will take place in the first week of November.
