About NUS Law, Singapore
The National University of Singapore Faculty of Law is Singapore’s oldest law school. NUS Law was initially established in 1956 as the Department of Law at the University of Malaya.
About Legal Fellowship
These full-time fellowships are intended to serve as a bridge between either undergraduate study or work in the legal profession and a tenure-track academic position with a strong foundation in Singapore law.
Successful candidates will be appointed for two years on a competitive salary.
Candidates will teach half of the standard faculty workload, typically by joining one of the team-taught compulsory subjects.
The reduced load will free up considerable time for research, supported by a faculty mentor who will read and comment on your work, and advise on publication avenues.
Sheridan Fellows are expected to actively participate in faculty events and to present at least one paper in the Faculty Research Workshop.
An outstanding undergraduate LLB degree; and
Demonstrated potential to produce high-quality research
Applicants may also have an LLM degree (or its equivalent) but this is not essential.
Successful candidates who do not have an LLM degree will be required to complete an LLM and will generally be expected to obtain a doctorate, prior to being appointed to the tenure track.
Applicants who are interested in any area of law and who deploy different research methodologies are welcome to apply.
