Nanyang Technological University

Postdoctoral Fellow


The Postdoctoral Fellow will be part of an interdisciplinary team investigating the broad question of how and why different actors--embedded within inter-state institutions, states, or the civil society and grassroots--engage in the discursive practices of constructing "Asia" as an important category. Applicants should preferably have administrative experience and demonstrate strong research and publication records in areas such as, but not restricted to, political regionalism, international/regional norm dynamics, geopolitical analysis, and political and economic institution-building.



We invite applicant with a recent Ph.D. from internationally reputable academic institutions working in any discipline of the social sciences, particularly International Affairs/Relations. The successful candidate is expected to undertake cutting-edge research either jointly with the NTU counterparts or independently as well as to assist the Global Asia research cluster's research activities such as organizing workshops, seminars, and public talks.

Subject to mutual agreement, the postdoctoral fellow may undertake some light teaching, no more than one course per academic year, in a relevant subject area at the School of Social Sciences.
