Tenured and Head of Studies Appointment in Philosophy

Yale-NUS College, a collaboration between the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Yale University, is seeking to hire an accomplished scholar to assume a tenured appointment, at the full or associate professor rank, and as head of studies in Philosophy.  Applicants should be active researchers with a commitment to creative and effective undergraduate teaching and mentoring within their specialties and in the Yale-NUS Common Curriculum.  An ongoing research program that incorporates undergraduates would be highly desirable. 

As a senior tenured academic within the Division of Humanities, the incoming faculty member will inform and develop the curriculum in the Division, aid in the leadership of both junior and senior faculty, maintain an active research portfolio in his or her given discipline or area of interest, and engage energetically in teaching in philosophy and in the Common Curriculum (please see http://www.yale-nus.edu.sg/curriculum/common-curriculum).    

The successful applicant should be a senior scholar of established standing in the field of philosophy, with expertise in Asian philosophy (of any region or tradition) and sufficient familiarity with other philosophical traditions, including analytical philosophy, to be able to mentor junior faculty (many of whom are trained in analytical philosophy) and to take a leadership role in fostering philosophical conversations across different philosophical systems, as apt in a liberal arts context.  The position will be a tenured appointment, and the appointee will be expected to commence work in time for the start of the 2017-2018 academic year.  Salary, benefits, and leave policies will be competitive at an international level.  Yale-NUS College is committed to supporting faculty research through various grants, research, and travel allowances. 

Applications should consist of the following: a cover letter explaining why the position at Yale-NUS is of interest; a full curriculum vitae, including a complete list of publications; statements on research interests, teaching experience, and teaching philosophy, including how these might fit with the College’s particular mission and curriculum; and the names and contact information of three academic referees.  

Applications should be submitted by October 15, 2016 via https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/YaleNUS; early application is encouraged. For questions concerning the position or application, please contact Divisional Manager, Mrs. Mastura Saleh at [email protected].

The College values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.  For more information about Yale-NUS College, please visit our web site at:  http://www.yale-nus.edu.sg/
