Singapore Management University, School of Social Sciences
The School of Social Sciences (SOSS), Singapore Management University, invites applications for an appointment in Arts and Culture Management at Full, Associate or Assistant Professor rank. This appointment may be made on tenure or non-tenure track (education or practice) depending on experience.
We are seeking a scholar with demonstrated excellence in teaching, as well as a robust research background, to enhance the Arts and Culture Management (ACM) Programme - a second major of the Bachelor of Social Science of SOSS. We are particularly interested in candidates whose academic background matches the School’s aspirations in the development of a research culture relating to the organisation and management of cultural activities, and the place of arts policy within broader society.
Candidates may come from a range of backgrounds but should be keen to participate in furthering analytical frameworks and case studies in the Asian arts sector. A special interest in Performance Studies/Performing Arts, and Cultural Histories/Heritage Studies would be useful. The candidate must also be able to teach the core courses in the ACM Programme. Information on ACM Curriculum can be found here.
The position requires a doctorate in a relevant discipline but candidates with a lesser degree and outstanding industry knowledge, experience and theoretical grounding may also be considered.
Singapore Management University is committed to an interdisciplinary and integrated curriculum, providing opportunities to work with faculty across the social sciences and professional schools. The research support is excellent, salary and benefits are highly competitive. Classes are capped at no more than 45 students.
