Nanyang Assistant Professors

Following the NRF Fellowship scheme, NTU also has its own premier scheme, the elite Nanyang Assistant Professorship (NAP), launched in 2007 to attract exceptional young academics throughout the world to work at NTU, further strengthening NTU’s commitment to research excellence. Not only do the NAP recipients receive start-up grants of up to S$1 million, they also have the chance to help lead NTU’s next wave of multidisciplinary research. The scheme is opened on an annual basis and each year, up to 10 appointments will be made.

Currently, there are 33 Nanyang Assistant Professors working at NTU.
