Catching up on mail so belatedly reposting the following response to a similar ad from CITASA.
Alas I don't believe these jobs will be good for many people on this list.
Unfortunately NTU, and Singapore, has a bad reputation for academic freedoms. Very recently the president of the country overturned a tenure decision involving one of our colleagues, Dr. Cherian George (phd Stanford), and neither his department nor his university were able to stand by him. I was one of his external reviewers and got drawn into the campaign to have the university and government respect the usual system of peer assessment.
If you study communication, technology, journalism, media, or have domains of inquiry that are culturally, politically, or economically sensitive, this is probably not a good place for you. Singapore as a country may open up in time, but you probably don't want to be the next test case for academic freedom! It is a bit early, and a bit risky, to invest your academic career in Singapore.
