Position Description

Yale-NUS College is a highly selective liberal arts and science college in Singapore.  Co-founded by Yale University and the National University of Singapore, the College is committed to excellence in research and teaching within a full residential programme that integrates living and learning.  Its curriculum educates students in Asian and Western intellectual traditions as well as current scientific thought.  A student body of 1000 undergraduates from over 70 countries engages with more than 100 outstanding faculty from around the world through small classes and hands-on research. Students and faculty also have access to the wider resources of two world-leading research universities.  

The College invites applications for one tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor rank in Psychology. Preferred field of specialisation is clinical psychology. We may also consider candidates whose teaching and research intersect with clinical and health psychology or behavioral medicine, including the study of social or developmental factors that influence mental or physical health and/or those who conduct research in clinical or community settings.  

Applicants should have a relevant PhD and demonstrate an outstanding track record for their career stage. Research achievements should include publications in leading peer-reviewed journals or conferences commensurate with career stage as well as a demonstrated potential to secure research funding. 

A clear ability and passion for undergraduate education is essential. The incoming faculty member would join a committed team dedicated to the development and teaching in Psychology and Yale-NUS’s flagship Common Curriculum (see http://www.yale-nus.edu.sg/curriculum/common-curriculum).  

The appointee will be expected to begin duties in time for the start of the 2022-2023 academic year. Faculty receive internationally competitive salaries and start-up grants as well as a yearly travel and research allowance. They are able to access additional funding from Yale-NUS, the National University of Singapore, and Singapore’s Ministry of Education. Most faculty qualify for highly subsidized faculty housing. Yale-NUS College is located in Singapore, a multicultural city of six million at the heart of a vibrant region.
