Senior Position in Asian Philosophy at Yale-NUS

Just listed at Jobs for Philosophers

The newly established Yale-NUS College (www.yale-nus.edu.sg) in Singapore announces a senior tenured faculty opening in Philosophy. The desired areas are Ethics and/or Political Philosophy or Asian Philosophy with an emphasis in Ethics and/or Political Philosophy.

Yale-NUS College seeks outstanding teacher-scholars who are active researchers, eager to be part of the inaugural faculty, committed to innovative pedagogy and curriculum development, and who enjoy close mentoring of students. Yale-NUS College, a collaboration between the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Yale University, draws on the best elements of liberal arts education in the United States to re-imagine the curriculum and collegiate experience for the 21st Century. Both Asian and Western perspectives will be integrated throughout the students’ course of study. Yale-NUS College will be a fully residential four-year College, located adjacent to NUS’s main campus. The College emphasizes small class size, close interaction between living and learning and a common curriculum, which will be significantly broader than most established “core curricula.” It will include courses addressing material and disciplines from across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.

The faculty at Yale-NUS College will participate in a lively academic culture, with a tenure track and teaching requirements comparable to those at leading liberal arts colleges in the United States. Salary, benefits and leave policies will be competitive at an international level.

The College values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.  For additional information about the College and the faculty hiring process, including submission guidelines, we invite you to visit our web site at www.yale-nus.edu.sg/prospective-faculty.html.  Review of applications will begin November 1, 2012 and will continue until open positions are filled.  Short listed candidates may be invited to visit Singapore beginning in January 2013.
