Job description

The Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences program at the Singapore University of Technology and Design, a new research university established in collaboration with MIT, invites applications for a full-time lectureship in teaching a two-semester cross-cultural core course entitled 'World Civilizations and Texts'. Students are expected to read key texts from different regions and cultural groups and to engage in intensive discussions revolving around fundamental issues that emerge from the texts. The course goals include critical thinking and writing skills. The position requires a completed Ph.D. in a humanities discipline including comparative literature, history, philosophy, religious studies, or cultural studies. Applicants with knowledge of Chinese, South Asian, or Islamic literature and culture are especially welcome, but other areas of focus will be considered.

Applicants should  be able to contextualize and teach both pre-modern and modern texts from one of these global cultures, as well as have a scholarly competence in a second  global culture. Fluency in an East or South Asian language or Arabic a plus.
