Job Description

Advanced Computing for Executives (ACE) is the executive education arm of the NUS School of Computing (SoC). The mission of ACE is to educate leaders and executives in exploiting relevant digital technology in transforming business and society.

ACE invites suitably qualified candidates to apply for a full-time teaching position at the Instructor level to teach Artificial Intelligence (AI) related courses that are offered to adult learners from within the University and the general public. An attractive remuneration package consisting of the following components would be offered to successful candidates:

  • Competitive salary that commensurates with educational qualification and relevant experience
  • Subsidy on tuition fee to pursue an approved postgraduate degree that is offered by SoC
  • Healthcare and other fringe benefits

Successful candidates are expected to be trained by faculty members from SoC to conduct classroom teaching (face-to-face and online) for these courses on a full-time basis. Successful candidates are also expected to assist in the production of teaching and learning materials such as video lectures, provide project consultations, and perform course administrative tasks. A typical career progression beyond the focal Instructor position would be a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, etc., if the candidate goes on to complete a Ph.D. degree while holding an Instructor position in this teaching role.

Multiple positions are available and shortlisted candidates would be arranged to attend a preliminary interview on a rolling basis. Shortlisted candidates who have successfully advanced to the next round of selection would be invited to perform demonstration teaching on a suitable AI topic.
