We are particularly interested in scholars pursuing interdisciplinary and transcultural research. The successful candidate should have a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and research. We seek a dynamic scholar who combines deep knowledge of modern Chinese literature and culture with a strong commitment to comparative and interdisciplinary research, and to teaching and mentoring that will attract a diverse student body.

To be considered for appointment at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor, applicants should have achieved a high standing in the relevant research field and demonstrated academic and international professional leadership.

The appointee will (a) develop and teach courses at postgraduate and undergraduate levels, (b) supervise postgraduate students, (c) actively apply for external competitive grants, and (d) assist in administrative matters. Appointments will normally be made on contract basis for up to 3 years initially commencing August 2024, which, subject to performance and mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation later.

Applicants should complete the online application form and upload the following on or before 31 January 2024: (i) full resume with a cover letter, (ii) one writing sample, (iii) a research plan, (iv) evidence of teaching performance with a teaching statement, and (v) names and e-mail addresses of three referees to whom the applicant's consent has been given for their providing reference.
