The National Institute of Education (NIE) is among the world’s top education institutes, recognised for its excellence in teacher education and educational research. NIE has played a key and pivotal role in shaping and developing Singapore’s teaching profession and landscape through evidence-informed, practice-focused and values-based programmes and initiatives.

The Learning Sciences & Assessment Academic Group (LSA) invites educational practitioners who possess at least a Master in Education with a specialization in Assessment for Learning to apply for a faculty position on the lecturing track

LSA is an interdisciplinary academic group that focuses on understanding learning and assessment from multiple perspectives with the ultimate goal of enhancing and ensuring educative outcomes for all learners. Our mission is to enable educational practitioners to become designers of learning experiences and environments and active contributors in a reflective community of practice. We grapple with the tensions and the nexus between learning, assessment and instructional design, and to mediate the design process as both a science and an art. Currently, we offer courses for initial teacher education, as well as graduate programmes such as the Master of Arts (Instructional Design and Technologies), Master of Education (Learning Sciences and Technologies), Master of Arts in Professional Education (Training and Development), Master of Teaching, Master of Science in Science of Learning and Design, Doctor of Education (Technologies and Technology-Mediated Learning Environments) and Doctor of Philosophy (Education).

The candidate would play an active role in some or all of these programmes. Applicants who are prepared to support and work with colleagues on learning and assessment issues in common or new expertise areas are valued. Working across disciplinary interests is encouraged. 


Successful candidates must have:

  • An earned doctorate in a relevant field is preferred. Alternatively, at least a Master in Education and plans to begin a PhD or EdD in an area pertinent to the teaching areas of LSA

  • Evidence of excellence in teaching

  • Experience in conducting professional development or teaching courses in Assessment Literacy

  • Experience in conducting Assessment Research, and/or producing practice oriented publications that support Assessment Literacy in schools and in assessment courses.

  • Excellent communication (verbal and written English)

  • Willingness to understand and support the work of colleagues beyond one’s niche expertise


Successful candidates will be expected:

  • To actively contribute to collegial efforts to conceptualize, design, implement and sustain a productive assessment research program.

  • To teach existing and new courses in initial teacher education, executive, undergraduate and graduate programmes

  • To work with a team of faculty to develop and teach courses, and pioneer changes in practices in schools

  • To supervise initial teacher education and/or graduate students

  • To be actively contributing in competitive research grants, and publish research in reputable journals or other outlets as is customary in his/her field

  • To establish professional connections with local and international researchers and practitioners in the specific expertise area

  • To share expertise with NIE colleagues through various platforms

  • To contribute to services at the departmental, institutional, university, national and international levels
