Over the past five years, Universiti Brunei Darussalam has been on an exciting progressive journey of change, from what is fundamentally a teaching university to a first class international university of excellence in teaching and research. Our vision is to be among the top 50 universities in Asia.
In education, we have introduced a new undergraduate degree program, Generation Next (GenNEXT), which emphasizes broad-based learning, programmes that cross-disciplinary boundaries and real world experiential learning in the form of the Discovery Year.
In research, UBD is fortunate to have the strong support of His Majesty’s government in providing funds and infrastructural support to advance research. This entails substantial increase in research funding and the development of infrastructural support as well as ample dedicated leave time for research and conferences.
In April 2014, UBD experienced another milestone with the announcement of the new salary scheme for the recruitment and retention of quality academic staff.
As Brunei Darussalam’s Premier National University, UBD invites suitably qualified candidates to join us in shaping global future leaders and contribute as a Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Research.
The Institute of Asian Studies (IAS) at the Universiti Brunei Darussalam is in a phase of active expansion. This has created an opening for a Sociologist with an interest in teaching social theory and methodology. Candidates with knowledge and interest in Southeast Asia and/or Asia are particularly welcome. The ability to situate research in a regional perspective is also desirable. The successful candidate will contribute to both the Institute and Faculty Arts and Social Sciences in research, supervision and some teaching responsibilities at both undergraduate and graduate level. Candidates must possess a PhD in Sociology and a demonstrable record of excellence in research internationally and a proven capacity to initiate, lead and collaborate on research projects. The Institute has established ties with a number of universities and other key bodies globally alongside funding for research and graduate students. The aim is to establish IAS as a major knowledge hub in a growing network of Asian-based research establishments. Successful applicants will be eligible for UBD’s new internationally competitive and tax-free salary scheme.
