Job Description

The Department of Political Science at the National University of Singapore invites applications for an educator-track Lectureship or Senior Lectureship in Global Studies. Global Studies is a multidisciplinary programme that examines the processes and effects of globalisation across political, economic, social, and cultural domains. We welcome applications from scholars with teaching and research interests in the programme’s four themes: 1) Peoples, Cultures, and Globalisation; 2) Global Political Economy; 3) Global Health, Environment, and Technology; and 4) Colonialism, Security, and Global Order. In addition to lecture- and seminar-style classes, candidates should be able to develop and teach applied, workshop-style classes for upper level undergraduates in cooperation with NGOs, business, or government agencies.

The teaching load is six modules per academic year (three per semester).

Lectureships at NUS are career positions in which advancement (to open-contracted Associate Professor and Professor) is possible. Appointments are for three years initially and are renewable on an ongoing basis, subject to good performance and departmental teaching needs. Compensation and benefits are comparable to those of faculty members on the tenure track and are competitive.

Scholars from all social science and humanities disciplines are welcome to apply. However, the applicant’s research profile should be legible to scholars of politics, broadly defined, given that the future tenure home will be the Department of Political Science.
Candidates should submit a letter of application detailing research and teaching interests; curriculum vitae; samples of written work and four letters of recommendation. Applicants should also submit a teaching portfolio to include sample syllabi, student evaluations, and other evidence of teaching quality.  We will begin to review applications on 30 March 2018 and continue until the search is complete. Application materials should be sent to the Chair of the Search Committee at polbox5@nus.edu.sg  

To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by 30 March 2018.

Please note that only short-listed candidates will be notified.
