The Gender and Sexuality Research Cluster (GSRC) and the Department of Communications and New Media (CNM) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) invite applications for a full-time 2.5-year research position as a Postdoctoral Fellow.

The position starts October 1, 2020. The successful candidate will take on the role of Co-Investigator to assist, support, and collaborate with the Principal Investigator (PI) (Dr. Michelle Ho) on the project “Sexual Misconduct on Campus: Starting the Conversation in Singapore.” This project is the first to explore current issues surrounding “sexual misconduct” on campuses in Singapore, where “sexual misconduct” denotes any nonconsensual action of a sexual nature, including but not limited to sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, and technologically facilitated sexual violence. Drawing primarily on ethnographic methods, namely surveys, in-depth interviews, and participant observation, the project is aimed at starting conversations with students, faculty, and administrations at local universities about how we can address campus sexual misconduct.

Responsibilities of a Co-Investigator related to this project include but are not limited to: co-authoring publications, grant proposals, and other scholarly writing; overseeing the logistics of carrying out field research including training and managing research assistants, recruiting research participants, scheduling and conducting interviews, extracting online data, and coding and organizing field data; and organizing on-campus seminars to present and test ideas. Familiarity with conducting ethnography and other forms of qualitative research methods is required. Familiarity with or the willingness to learn digital research methods, such as web scraping, would be advantageous.

As the project is affiliated with the GSRC, the Postdoctoral Fellow will be expected to engage with scholarly activities and research seminars organized by the cluster. As a member of CNM, the Postdoctoral Fellow may also be expected to participate in the life of the department. In addition, the Postdoctoral Fellow is expected to work on their individual project(s), such as revising their PhD dissertation into a book manuscript, and publications in the form of single-authored journal articles.

The ideal candidate will have a strong commitment to social justice and research interests in gender and sexuality studies, especially in the Asian context.

As this is a full-time research position, the Postdoctoral Fellow is expected to reside in Singapore during the 2.5-year term, except for vacation and academic leave. No teaching is involved, but teaching opportunities can be made available.

This is an entry-level position. Candidates are expected to have no more than two years of postdoctoral research experience. A PhD in Women’s and Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, Media and Communications Studies, Sociology, Anthropology, Geography, or a closely related discipline is required at the time of appointment. However, ABD (all but dissertation) candidates who are close to finishing (PhD in hand within 6 months after the start of the appointment) may also be considered.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Singaporean citizens and Permanent Residents will be given priority. The position is funded by a Research Scholarship Block Fund – Post Doc Fellows (RSB PDF).

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. 

A full application should consist of the following:

  • curriculum vitae, including the candidate’s academic history, research experience (if any), conference activity, and list of publications

  • research statement of up to 3 pages highlighting major accomplishments in research, citing up to 5 significant publications, creative work or other scholarly contribution, and explaining their significance.

  • writing samples from said publications, up to 5 articles or chapters

  • personal data consent form

  • Scanned copies of transcripts of all degrees obtained

  • They should also arrange for four confidential letters of recommendations, inclusive of one from their PhD supervisor, to be submitted by recommenders on AcademicJobsOnline. Applications without recommendation letters will not be reviewed.
