The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) is Singapore’s fifth autonomous university and was founded with the vision to lead in innovative university education by integrating learning, industry and community. SIT espouses an applied learning approach and offers degrees that focus on industry-relevant science and technology areas. Our faculty work closely with industry on translational research and innovation, as well as providing consultancy to address industry challenges. This well-established nexus with industry endows our graduates with deep skills and work-ready training experience - attuning them to the needs and demands of the future economy.
As a young university, we encourage innovation and seek the right candidates to join us in realizing our vision. We offer competitive remuneration, generous employment benefits, access to funding to undertake research of relevance to industry, and the opportunities to inspire and nurture the next generation of skilled and work-ready graduates. We currently have positions available from Lecturer to Associate Professor.
Successful candidates will join the Centre for Communication Skills (CCS), as members of a team of accomplished experts who are passionate about incorporating critical thinking in the teaching of writing and presentation skills of content in higher education. Successful candidates will also be actively involved in embedding the teaching of specific writing and speaking skills in content modules across academic years and programmes in different disciplines. CCS faculty are also deeply involved with industry transformation through their applied research in communication in the disciplines. They are also provided with paid leave to undertake consultancy work with industry and/or spend time attached to work with industry.
