National University of Singapore, Political Science
Assistant Professor of Global Studies
|Institution Type:||College / University|
The Global Studies Programme in the Department of Political Science at the National University of Singapore invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. 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. 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.
The Department of Political Science and the National University of Singapore are highly research-oriented. The teaching load is three modules academic year. Compensation is competitive and includes eligibility for annual performance bonuses and salary increments, subsidized housing, medical benefits, and substantial research support.
Applicants should submit a letter of application detailing research and teaching interests; curriculum vitae; samples of written work; four letters of recommendation; and teaching evaluations and materials if available. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that only short-listed candidates will be notified.
