Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (Educator Track) - Department of Chinese Studies


The Department of Chinese Studies, National University of Singapore, is one of the leading institutions in the world in the fields of Chinese Studies and Chinese Language and a major centre in Southeast Asia.   We invite applications for the post of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (Educator Track).

The track aims to attract, nurture and retain suitably qualified and highly effective faculty members who approach teaching as scholarly practice and who therefore focus on and are passionate about excellence in teaching as a means of supporting student learning.  The minimum academic qualification is a PhD in Chinese Studies, preferably with expertise in the history of China and Singapore studies.  A proven record of excellent teaching, creative pedagogical approaches for teaching first-year and/or large modules and an interest in pedagogical research will be an advantage.  The appointment will begin as soon as possible thereafter for an initial period of three years with the possibility of contract renewal subject to good performance, departmental teaching needs and continued relevance of the faculty member’s contributions.  The Educator Track scheme has clearly defined career progression to Senior Lecturer (term contract) and finally Associate Professor (open contract).   

NUS is a leading university in Asia, which provides rich resources and opportunities for research, competitive remuneration, and generous benefits, including subsidized housing and medical coverage.
