my 2 cents about the professor profession.

It seems a pretty good life if you love doing research and are committed to academic type of work. A close assistant professor from university of michigan of mine only meets his boss once or twice a year. The objective of the annual meeting is to receive compliment from his Boss "great job you did!" Other than that, the whole entire year you work on your own research and present at annual marketing..finance.. operations conferences.. depending on what field you are in.. you get to stay at nice hotels and meet smart people..

he's paid 15k per month only 32 years old. damn.

In general, they would hire from Ivy Leaguers in US, Oxbridge or other good foreign Unis.


Rubbish.
You just have to teach in some other uni first.
Then you'll be eligible for employment in NUS.

If u are interested for the sake of research study professor is a good option . But if u study professor for the sake of high salary. I have doubted that u might succeed. Is an unguarantee trait with a lot of monetary and time invested. I think u better use your scientific knowledge to develop the next Facebook/ next ****** or next spaceship which can benefit the human race
