Assistant Professor of Structural Engineering

Nanyang Technological University School of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Nanyang Technological University - School of Civil & Environmental Engineering

Tenure-track Assistant Professor Position in Structural Engineering


Young and research-intensive, Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) is ranked 13th globally. It is also placed 1st among the world’s best young universities and ranked 8th globally for Engineering and Technology. Committed to our mission of educating leaders and advancing knowledge for Singapore and beyond, we have built global programs and established strong links with leading institutions around the world.


The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), which is under the College of Engineering, aspires to be a leading school for Sustainable Urban Systems. Currently, it has over 50 faculty members and more than 1,500 students, and is rapidly expanding its range of educational and research activities. Its faculty has led major university-wide strategic research thrusts in space creation, water research and sustainable built environment. Going forward, CEE is addressing critical problems in urban systems such as building structures and energy systems, sustainability of urban cities, and resiliency to natural and unnatural risks.


To fuel further development, the School invites applications for a Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Structural Engineering.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering or Structural Engineering. Specifically, the new hire must be able to teach mechanics of materials, determinate and indeterminate structural analysis, structural design in either reinforced and precast concrete, and/or steel and composite structures, and tall building structures at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and is expected to enhance the school's existing curriculum.

In addition, successful applicants are expected to perform high-impact and high-demand research that would lead to a strong extramurally-funded research program. Expertise including inspection, detection and prediction of durability of existing ageing reinforced concrete structures or adoption of ultra-high strength steel for design and construction of structures, will be useful. They should have a robust knowledge of mechanics of concrete structures or steel properties, strength and weldability, so that their research interest will not be confined only to a narrow area.



  1. Candidates with professional qualifications as a structural/civil engineer will be an asset.
  2. Extensive practical working experience in the building and construction industry.
  3. Have postdoctoral or higher academic experience and proven research records.
  4. Strong publication records in top tier international journals.
  5. Have deep knowledge in emerging areas relevant to structural engineering and structural mechanics and computational mechanics.



Key Benefits

CEE offers an internationally-competitive salary that commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience. The University will also provide subsidized on-campus housing, whereby residents have easy access to modern sports, F&B, childcare, and healthcare facilities in a campus frequently listed among the Top 15 Most Beautiful in the World.
