​NISTH Visiting Fellowship Programme (Application for 2019 Closed)

The NTU Institute of Science and Technology for Humanity (NISTH) Visiting Fellowship programme is a newly-launched initiative with the aim of promoting scholarly exchange and enriching the intellectual environment of the University. 

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 taking part in research and/or teaching activities for a limited period of time, typically for a semester.

Application for NISTH Visiting Fellowship Programme 2019 is closed. Keep a look out here for the next round. 

Tenure & Stipend
Appointment will be subject to eligibility to work in Singapore.


Visiting Fellows will receive an appointment of up to 6 months. Upon award, Fellowships will likely start in January to coincide with the NTU academic calendar. NISTH 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.

Visiting Fellows will be provided:

  • Work space within NTU and access to the NTU Library facilities
  • Stipend, to be deposited every month into a bank account in a bank based in Singapore. Alternative arrangements may be made for short-term appointments of 3 months or less.

  • Round-trip economy class air fare, on the most direct route between the Visiting Fellow’s city of residence, and Singapore.
  • Assistance in application for appropriate Employment Pass to work in Singapore.
  • Assistance in securing accommodation within campus (subject to availability).  
Health, Insurance and Benefits
The University does not provide health insurance or staff benefits to short-term visiting faculty. NISTH 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 NISTH.
