Position description

The S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, invites applications for a tenured faculty position at the Associate Professor level specialising in the study of the comparative politics of Southeast Asia. The candidate must conduct research and teach in any of the subject domains of the comparative politics of Southeast Asia, including but not limited to themes such as civil-military relations, the role of the developmental state, political institutions, political leadership and political systems. The candidate’s research and teaching should reflect a strong background in Comparative Politics and a balanced theoretical and empirical grounding.

A relevant PhD and a good publication record commensurate with the level of appointment are essential requirements. Experience in policy-relevant research and publication is not necessary but would be useful. Candidates are expected to demonstrate an active research and publication agenda and strong promise for teaching in graduate programs.

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to and play an active role in teaching, research, service, as well as the RSIS think-tank workstream. The teaching load is up to three MSc courses per academic year.
