Department of Geography, National University of Singapore (NUS)
Three Faculty Positions in Social and Cultural Geographies of Asia
Assistant Professor (tenure track)

The Department of Geography at the National University of Singapore (NUS) seeks to appoint up to three emerging scholars in the field of Social and Cultural Geographies of Asia. The successful candidates will be affiliated with the Department’s Social and Cultural Geographies (SCG) research group.

While recruitment is not limited to the following topics, we particularly welcome applications from social and cultural geographers whose research is empirically informed and theoretically addresses:

• Geographies of resilience and/or vulnerability, such as to do with climate risks and hazards, informality, ageing and life course, rural and peri-urban geographies and the digital divide

• Children and/or youth geographies

For candidates who do not have previous experience of researching in/on Asia, it is important to demonstrate evidence of an ability and willingness to develop research projects in/from the region.

The NUS Department of Geography has a long and rich tradition of social and cultural geography research, with well-established strengths in scholarship on cultural/heritage landscapes, migration and transnationalism, cities, gender, and geographies of tourism. In more recent years the SCG research group has developed other research strands including ageing and care, children and young people, pedagogy innovations and urban liveability. The group is currently organised around two inclusive and overlapping themes: mobilities and urban life.

SCG members have strong collaborative relations with colleagues in the other two research groups in the Department (Politics, Economies and Space, PEAS, and Tropical Environmental Change, TEC) and scholars in cognate disciplines, particularly as part of the NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. NUS, is ranked among the world’s most highly reputed universities and provi
