|Institution Type:||College / University|
The Theatre Studies Programme in the Department of English Language and Literature at NUS invites applications for the post of Assistant Professor (tenure track). Outstanding candidates with teaching and research interests in any area of Theatre and Performance Studies are encouraged to apply, with applications especially welcome in the areas of theatre history, modern drama, applied theatre, cross-media performance, and contemporary Asian performance. Employment will commence in January 2015.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Theatre, Performance or Dance Studies, and a developing record of international publications and research activity. The appointee will be expected to teach core undergraduate modules in theory and practice, to attract and supervise graduate students, and to contribute decisively to the research profile of the Programme.
The appointment reflects growth in both student numbers and the commitment to research in Theatre Studies at NUS, the oldest and largest university in the cosmopolitan Southeast Asian city-state of Singapore. It is consistently ranked amongst the top universities in the world, and the Department of English Language and Literature is one of the best in Asia. Established in 1992, the Theatre Studies Programme is one of three sections in the Department (along with English Language and English Literature). It currently has eight full-time faculty members, who teach a broad-based curriculum covering theatre, performance and screen culture. Close links are maintained with the vibrant local theatre scene in Singapore, and current research focuses on the theory and practice of contemporary performance in the Asian region and beyond. At the undergraduate level, Theatre Studies is offered as a Major and a Minor, as well as a ‘breadth’ option for interested students from other programmes. Our graduate research community is growing, dynamic and highly international.
NUS expects the highest standards of teaching and scholarship from its faculty. In return, it offers excellent terms and conditions. There is considerable support for research, including grants for research projects, conference money and a very well funded library. Salary will be commensurate with experience and level of appointment.
