Lecturer in Social Sciences

Job Req ID:  1363
Employee Category:  Faculty
Department:  HASS
 

The Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) faculty at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) seeks applicants for a full-time lecturer or senior lecturer teaching-track position in the general humanities. Appointments will be made on an initial two- or three-year contract with the possibility of renewal. Many of our lecturers have taught for a decade or more at SUTD, and a number of our lecturers have been with our department since its inception.

 

Successful candidates will teach both original elective courses in their field of specialty, as well as sections in the team-taught Global Humanities first-year course. The teaching load for teaching-track faculty is 6.5 course credits per calendar year. During most years, this will equal a 3-3 teaching load with a small additional service component to fulfil the half credit. Salary compensation is internationally competitive, and includes relocation support, family pass sponsorship for dependent spouses and children, a monthly housing allowance, and an option to live in on-campus faculty housing for international faculty.

 

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a humanities discipline, with a proven track record of effective teaching and research in the applicant’s field of specialty. We particularly encourage applications from scholars who are engaged in interdisciplinary or comparative teaching and research, and who have experience in humanities teaching focusing on multiple geographic areas and historical periods. We are especially open to faculty with research and teaching specialties in global or comparative philosophy, art history, film studies, the fine arts, music studies, or Southeast Asian studies to complement existing faculty strengths in literature, classics, history, religious studies, theater studies, Asian studies, and the digital humanities.

 

The successful candidate will (1) teach and develop our team-taught undergraduate humanities core course, an interdisciplinary global texts course that draws on key works from a diverse range of cultural traditions from Asia, Europe, the Americas, and contemporary global contexts; and (2) design and deliver humanities elective courses in the candidate’s area of specialization. We are especially interested in candidates who are willing to contribute to our cluster’s new digital humanities minor program.
