Opportunities for employment (part-time or full-time) in NUS may be available for members of the public, our NUS alumni or current graduate students:
  • At the level of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS), part-time or full-time research job opportunities may be available in the FASS Research Clusters. Please access each research cluster's website to learn more.
  • However, at the Department level, these opportunities are often ad-hoc, arising only when individual research projects/grants or faculty staff members require such research manpower. Therefore, our Department's General Office will not be able to make arrangements for or coordinate your job hunt, unless there is an opening to be advertised.
 
Therefore, if you have been able to secure research employment with our Department's faculty staff, please note the following:
  • You can only start work when approval of your appointment is given.
  • For Full-Time Research Appointments: Approval comes directly from the Faculty's Dean's Office. This type of approval typically takes 2-4 months to be processed. Approval will take longer to be processed if you are a foreign national requiring a work permit.
    Please check with the General Office ( ) to learn more about the administrative paperwork to be done.
  • For Part-Time Research Appointments: Approval comes from the Department, meaning the approval process will not take as long as the full-time research appointment. However, please give the General Office a lead time of at least 3 weeks to process the part-time appointment.
    Please check with the General Office ( ) to learn more about the administrative paperwork to be done.
