CLASS Visiting Fellowship

The CLASS Visiting Fellowship scheme is a newly-launched scheme with the aim of promoting scholarly exchange and enriching the intellectual environment of the College. 


The Visiting Fellows are to enhance the academic standing and research of the University by formulating research collaborations and by facilitating scholarly exchange among faculty. Their responsibilities usually include teaching and mentoring PhD students, advising and taking part in research for a limited period of time, typically for a semester.

CLASS puts out calls for applications for the CLASS Visiting Fellowship once a year.​


CLASS Visiting Fellows must have a current appointment with an established university or research institution. Applicants should generally have a PhD or equivalent higher degree in the humanities, arts and social sciences, and possess an established record of scholarly excellence in the field of study. Exceptions may be made for individuals who have made outstanding contributions in research areas that are aligned to the interests of the NTU COHASS community.

Tenure & Stipend

Applicants who are not Singapore citizens or permanent residents should ensure that they are eligible to work in Singapore.

Visiting Fellows will receive an appointment of up to 6 months. Upon award, Fellowships will likely start in July/August 2018 to coincide with the NTU academic calendar. CLASS reserves the right to offer a shorter appointment period than requested or to withdraw the Fellowship if it is not started within the agreed period.

Health, Insurance and Benefits

The university does not provide health, insurance and staff benefits to short-term visiting faculty. CLASS will provide contact details of commercial medical insurance providers, if requested.


Visiting Fellows are expected to give guest lectures, seminars or workshops to faculty and postgraduate students in the Visiting Fellow’s field of research.

Visiting Fellows are to make contributions to the University through research, service and mentoring. Visiting Fellows may also work on collaborative proposals with NTU faculty for competitive research grant calls.

Visiting Fellows are encouraged to participate actively in research seminars, public lectures and workshops organised by CLASS.
