This information is for NUS.

When considered as a total package, compensation at the National University of Singapore is quite attractive: housing, which is the major element in the cost of living, is subsidized and tax rates are low. The cash element is in three parts:

Basic salary
The basic salary scales on an annual basis are (in Singapore dollars):
Assistant Professor $ 72,000 - 144,000
Associate Professor $ 108,000 - 204,000
Professor $ 168,000 - 276,000

This yearly bonus ranges up to 25% of the basic salary. The exact percentage depends on the performance of faculty members.
Retirement benefits Foreign faculty members are entitled to an end-of-contract gratuity of up to 25% of the basic salary. For faculty members who are Singaporean or permanent residents, the University will make monthly contributions to the Central Provident Fund or Academic Staff Provident Fund.

Good luck!
