We are looking for colleagues who can teach academic writing throughtopic-specific interdisciplinary courses. The positions will be in theUniversity Scholars Programme (USP), a premier undergraduate honoursprogramme at the National University of Singapore, one of Asia's leadingresearch universities.

The majority of courses to be taught will be the USP'Writing and Critical Thinking (WCT)" modules, though appointees will alsohave the opportunity to develop and teach the occasional non-writing modulein USP.
The normal teaching load is 2/2, and each WCT class, because of itsintensity, is capped at 12 students. WCT courses are rigorous andintellectually engaging, and focus more on critical thinking than on themechanics of composition. Classes are interdisciplinary and themed around acontent area developed by the instructor, but with writing and criticalthinking components that are consistent across all WCT courses.
