The NUS (the National University of Singapore) Global Asia Institute invites applications for Research Assistant Professor / Research Fellow positions from scholars with strong skills in experimental social psychology, health psychology, or behavioural science.
Candidates should have an outstanding record in an accredited PhD program in psychology or behavioural science. We value applicants interested in lab experiments, field experiments, and intervention studies. The candidate is expected to have a strong psychology background and preferably an interest in issues such as social inequality or health behavior. He or she would spend 2 to 3 years at GAI and conduct experiments in the lab as well as in the field. The candidate will also collaborate with a number of behavioral and experimental economists, psychologists and healthcare scholars, to produce research that integrates insights from psychology, economics and other fields. Skills in handling secondary data would be a plus.
The research fellows will collaborate with a few professors from psychology and economics, and are encouraged to develop their own research programs. There will be no formal teaching obligation for the first contract. Salaries are globally competitive and commensurate with candidate's qualifications, track record, potential and experience. GAI has a good track record of placing research fellows at top research universities for tenure-track positions.
