(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral researcher for economic studies of distributed solar power investment in cities

The postdoctoral researcher will work with the co-PIs of the work package to develop economic frameworks for analysing private incentives to invest in distributed solar power resources in cities. The researcher will also work with various key stakeholders in the solar power sector in Singapore to develop case studies of solar power investment in an urban setting at the district or neighbourhood level. These case studies will highlight important lessons for urban solar investment in connection to multiple factors, including climate conditions, land-use mix, property ownership and occupancy, urban planning policies and building regulations, public-private partnerships, electricity tariff design, as well as advancement in solar power technologies.

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position on “Biophysical interactions in microbial communities”

In this project, you will work primarily on biophysical interactions driving or maintaining symbioses between bacteria and phytoplankton in the ocean. Phytoplankton as the main primary producers and bacteria as the main heterotrophic consumers represent two of the most abundant and biogeochemically important groups of microorganisms in the ocean. Their interactions are key to both ecosystem-level processes (e.g. demise of algal blooms) and global biogeochemical processes (e.g. the carbon cycle and ultimately climate regulation). There is increasing evidence that the association between these organisms can be beneficial for both partners, with phytoplankton providing carbon and bacteria providing limiting resources (e.g. vitamins), resulting in symbiosis. Yet, the nature, dynamics, stability and efficiency of these interactions remain largely unknown, chiefly because of the challenges in directly observing these processes at the single-cell level. In the Stocker lab, we have developed a suite of tools to directly assay microbial interactions through microfluidics and time-resolved imaging, which we are now leveraging to understand interactions in microbial communities, including symbiosis.
