A reader commented that Nicholas Silins (epistemology, Cornell) has accepted a tenured offer at Yale-National University of Singapore. It appears that the Yale-NUS philosophy department does not yet have a chair, so ProPhilosophy has attempted to confirm this with Pericles Lewis, a member of the English department at Yale and “active in the hiring of new faculty for Yale-NUS”. Unfortunately, all Lewis is able to say is that Yale-NUS has hired five philosophers–no more news is forthcoming until mid-June. A search turns up Andrew M Bailey (metaphysics, Ph.D. Notre Dame), Cathay Liu (early modern philosophy, Ph.D. North Carolina) and Neil Mehta (philosophy of mind, Ph.D. Michigan). All three of these are tenure-track hires.
