Yale-NUS College in Connecticut

Deadline Open until filled
Date Posted January 23, 2014
Type Administrative
Salary Competitive
Employment Type Full-time

The newly established Yale-NUS College (www.yale-nus.edu.sg) in Singapore is a fully residential four-year College. 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.


For leadership of our residential college system, Yale-NUS College seeks outstanding teacher-scholars who are eager to devote their energies to the academic, personal, and social development of undergraduate students. All students will live in one of Yale-NUSs three residential colleges, each of which will house approximately 330 undergraduates.  Each College will have a Rector and Vice-rector who will live in apartments in the College.


The Vice-Rector provides academic and personal counseling to undergraduates in the residential college; administers college functions, including housing and extracurricular activities; supervises Deans Fellows (residential staff); coordinates freshman advising; serves on Yale-NUS College committees; and teaches one or two courses per year. This is a residential position and includes weekend and evening hours. Successful candidates for the position of vice-rector will have advanced degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent), be skilled in working with undergraduates, especially in an advising role, and will be appointed as lecturer in one of the academic divisions of Yale-NUS College.  This is a 3-year term position which may be renewed with a favorable review at the end of the second year.


The College values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity. For additional information about Yale-NUS College and the faculty hiring process, including submission guidelines, we invite you to our web site at www.yale-nus.edu.sg/prospective-faculty.html. Review of applications will begin January 1, 2014 and will continue until open positions are filled. Successful candidates will take up their positions July 1, 2014. Short-listed candidates may be invited to visit Singapore beginning in January 2014.
