I am a local fresh PhD grad, in the field of social sciences/humanities, with no postdoc experience. I have more than 5 lead author articles published in highly regarded journals in my field (ranked top 10), graduated with bachelor and master at NUS (itself a highly ranked global institution) and PhD from Oxbridge.

I have applied for a couple of jobs, most recently a shortlist at NTU (Singapore), for a tenure-track position in Asst Professorship.

A couple of questions here I hope to receive some friendly advice. Based on my profile, how much should I be expecting, say, between the starting package of 80k - 100k - any experienced commentator pertaining to this?

Also, is it reasonable for me to expect and negotiate for "more", in the SG academic job environment, based on the reputation of my degrees and the fact that I have already published pieces in some of the top journals in the field?

As your field of study is non-technical, i would not be so optimistic in terms of the salary to be offered.
5 journal publication in top tier is nothing unusual, but if you are awarded best paper or if your work is quoted in leading press, then that could be additional selling point.

Anything above $50k is reasonable.

Thank you for your input.

I do not quite understand what you mean by "field of study is non-technical" and therefore not so optimistic over the salary?

I am quite surprised 5 publications in top tier journals is considered nothing unusual to you. As a fresh PhD graduate having already produced 5 single/lead authored papers is not common at all, in my opinion and based on my observations.

But I do agree with you that being quoted in leading press, or being awarded best paper, will definitely be a good point to sell the self.

50k per annum sounds a little too off the salary scale.

I recently saw a postdoc in the same faculty advertised for 6k per month, that makes it 72k per annum. And this is a postdoc position.

It would be a laughing stock for NTU to offer 50k at the minimum scale for tenure-track positions, given it's a global research university.

It is Nanyang Technological University. Hence, non technological subjects are simply less important and pay lesser. Even disregarding the technological biases of a technical university, the normal market normally pays humanities/social sciences much lesser anyway.

Unless you are an economics major, it is not surprising to get much lower pay. There is a large supply of humanities majors and low demand for them.

This forum is known for its bullshitters and self-certified experts. You are a joke for seeking advice on professorship here.





Or maybe you are a troll too.
