Humanities at Yale-NUS College
The newly established Yale-NUS College (www.yale-nus.edu.sg) in Singapore invites applications for the following positions in the Humanities:
• Literature – Open rank position in Asian and/or Comparative Literature. We are particularly interested in scholars who combine strengths in the pre-modern literatures of China or Japan with interdisciplinary and comparative range.
• Writing – Open rank position as Head of Writing across the Curriculum in a liberal arts environment. Administrative experience is desirable.
• Arts – Open rank position for an arts practitioner to teach his/her specialty and to direct arts programs in a liberal arts environment.
• Philosophy – A senior tenured position in Ethics and/or Political Philosophy or Asian Philosophy with an emphasis in Ethics and/or Political Philosophy.
Yale-NUS College seeks outstanding teacher-scholars who are active researchers, eager to be part of the inaugural faculty, committed to innovative pedagogy and curriculum development, and who enjoy close mentoring of students. Yale-NUS College, a collaboration between the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Yale University, draws on the best elements of liberal arts education in the United States to re-imagine the curriculum and collegiate experience for the 21st Century. Both Asian and Western perspectives will be integrated throughout the students’ course of study. Yale-NUS College will be a fully residential four-year College, located adjacent to NUS’s main campus. The College emphasizes small class size, close interaction between living and learning and a common curriculum, which will be significantly broader than most established “core curricula.” It will include courses addressing material and disciplines from across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
The faculty at Yale-NUS College participates in a lively academic culture, with a tenure track and teaching requirements comparable to those at leading liberal arts colleges in the United States. Salary, benefits and leave policies are competitive at an international level.
The College values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity. For additional information about the College and the faculty hiring process, including submission guidelines, we invite you to visit our web site at www.yale-nus.edu.sg/prospective-faculty.html. Review of applications will begin November 1, 2012 and will continue until open positions are filled. Short-listed candidates may be invited to visit Singapore beginning in January 2013.
