OUR INTEGRATIVE RESEARCH DOMAINS
- Urban Systems & Operations
- Active Citizenry & Communities
- Safety & Security
- Learning & Pedagogy
While we encourage and nurture applied research addressing real-world problems, we simultaneously cultivate and value big ideas, and research that is intellectually deep and thought provoking. Our faculty target their academic output primarily in the most-selective, academically prestigious venues. We want our faculty striving to create research outputs that advance thinking and scholarship in the core research areas, and also seeking real-world impact in the integrative research domains in “the world of business”.
We offer extremely attractive salary and benefits that are usually superior to international competitive benchmarks.
We are continuously on the lookout for outstanding faculty candidates at all levels:
- Fresh Ph.D. graduates
- Postdocs looking for a faculty position
- Ph.D. holders who are currently in industry but want to return to faculty and research work
- Mid-career or senior faculty
Tenure track faculty must have Ph.D. qualification in a relevant discipline (such as Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology and Information Systems) along with an outstanding research record.
Singaporeans selected for tenure track faculty positions may be considered for the Singapore Teaching and Academic Research Talent (START) Inauguration Grant. Details on the grant application procedure may be found here: https://www.smu.edu.sg/moe-start/inauguration-grant
Interested candidates are invited to submit a cover letter (indicating which of the above Core Research Areas your research interest belongs to), curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, three recommendation letters, and three samples of published work to:
