Yale-NUS College, a collaboration between the National University of Singapore and Yale University, seeks to appoint an accomplished scholar to assume a senior role in the Urban Studies major, at the level of Associate or Full Professor. Applicants should be internationally recognised scholars with an active research profile and a commitment to creative and effective undergraduate teaching and mentoring. Applicants may have a specialization in any relevant discipline, although the analysis of urban processes should be a central concern in their research and teaching. An interest in Asian urbanism or cities in a comparative perspective is desirable, but not necessary.
The incoming faculty member would join a committed team dedicated to the development and teaching of the Urban Studies Major (https://urbanstudies.yale-nus.edu.sg/) and the Yale-NUS Common Curriculum (https://www.yale-nus.edu.sg/curriculum/common-curriculum/).
The position will be a tenured appointment in Urban Studies, which sits within the Division of Social Sciences. The appointee will be expected to begin their duties in time for the start of the 2018/2019 academic year. Salary, benefits, and leave policies will be competitive at an international level. Yale-NUS College is committed to supporting faculty research through various grants, research, and travel allowances.
