Welcome to Min's page for his promotion and tenure case. I'm being considered for tenure and promotion to associate professor. Much of the evidence compiled in my tenure case available on my main web page, but I have been asked to provide a exact replica of the tenure dossier on line.

I'm keeping these files online here as a reference point for myself and others as a point of evidence concerning the promotion and tenure system at NUS. I hope these files aid you in your endeavors as well.

(Update: Sat May 16 17:01:21 SGT 2009) I was informed about a month ago that my tenure case was successful. I will be a tenured associate professor at NUS effective 1 July 2009, which makes my total tenure application time around 10 months (from submission to promotion).
