Appointment of University President

Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), located in the cosmopolitan city state of Singapore, is ranked 13th in the world and leads the top Asian universities in normalised research citation impact. Named the world’s fastest-rising young university in 2015, it has also been ranked the world’s best young university for the last three years.

Known for its lush and beautiful campus, world-class academic and residential facilities, and strengths in research and industry partnerships, NTU has more than 7,000 staff and 33,000 students, including a rapidly growing share of Singapore’s top students.

NTU is now seeking a successor to its 3rd President, Professor Bertil Andersson, who is stepping down after 10 years of sterling results at the university. This is an exciting opportunity for an accomplished individual to lead this vibrant, cosmopolitan university to even greater heights in education, research and innovation.

The ideal candidate is a high-energy, inspirational and innovative change agent who can continue to build on NTU's rapid development and international stature. Strong international experience and the ability to work well globally and within Asia are essential, and he or she should have a breadth of academic, administrative and management skills and an understanding of disciplines and the interfaces between them, as well as in research, education, innovation, administration and society.
