Job Description

The National University of Singapore (NUS) is a leading research-intensive university that is consistently ranked among the world’s top universities. The Department of Psychology at NUS has well-established undergraduate, graduate research and graduate clinical psychology professional training programmes. The department consists of an internationally diverse group of faculty members who are committed to excellence in research and teaching.

We seek applicants for the position of Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology (Educator-Track). The successful applicant is expected to join us in August 2021 as the Department continues to strengthen clinical teaching, supervision, and research in the clinical programme. The Department runs the Clinical and Health Psychology Centre, where psychological services (e.g., assessment and intervention) are provided, while simultaneously serving as a training clinic for clinical psychology interns.

Remuneration is competitive and includes medical, housing, relocation and other benefits.


The successful candidate must have at least 6 years of relevant experience after earning a PhD degree or an equivalent doctorate-level qualification in clinical psychology (e.g., DClinPsy, Clinpsy D). Evidence of excellence in teaching and/or clinical supervision is highly desirable. Although leading research programs is not a requirement, the successful candidate is expected to provide research supervision for graduate and undergraduate theses.

The candidate should be familiar with the mental health context in Singapore.
