NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR POSITION, TO BEGIN IN JULY 2018

Successful candidates must have

  • A Ph.D. in Sociology or Anthropology from an internationally acclaimed institution at the time of appointment.
  • Fields of specialization are open, but the Department is particularly interested in an area specialization within Southeast Asia.
  • A strong track record and promising trajectory in research and publication.
  • Excellent communication skills and dedication to academic teaching excellence and collegiality.

A leading global university centred in Asia, the National University of Singapore is a leader of scientific and social scientific research in the city-state of Singapore. Its transformative education includes a broad-based curriculum underscored by multi-disciplinary courses and cross-faculty enrichment, as well as special programmes which allow students to realise their potential. Over 30,000 students from 100 countries further enrich the community with their diverse social and cultural perspectives, making campus life vibrant and exciting.

The Department of Sociology offers Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Social Sciences and contributes to interdisciplinary programmes in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. The Department stands among the top sociology departments in Asia, and specializes in sociological and anthropological research on Asian societies. We have about forty faculty members in diverse fields such as family, demography, stratification, medical sociology, comparative-historical sociology, socio-cultural anthropology, and cultural studies. The Department attracts graduate students internationally and we have a rapidly developing postgraduate programme in which students have the option to complete a Ph.D. in either Sociology or Anthropology. (http://www.fas.nus.edu.sg/soc/)

The university emphasizes excellence in both teaching and research, with internationally competitive salaries and opportunities for substantial research funding. The successful candidate is also expected to supervise graduate students at the Masters and Ph.D. level. As the university’s medium of instruction is English, applicants must exhibit a high level of English-competency.

Applications should include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, a research and teaching statement, evidence of teaching effectiveness, names and contact details for three references, plus the application form (duly completed – http://www.fas.nus.edu.sg/soc/documents/news-and-events/job_appln.doc). Please submit your application in a single PDF file and do not include any writing samples.

Send applications to:
Chair, Search Committee
c/o Ms Jane Ong at socjob@nus.edu.sg.

Applications will be reviewed starting 30 September 2017, for campus visits in late October, early November, 2017. Early applications are encouraged so as to get full consideration by the committee. Only short-listed candidates will be notified.
