The Chinese University of Hong Kong is ranked among the top 50 universities worldwide according to QS World University Rankings. Situated in a metropolis that offers a multitude of living possibilities, with three-quarters of Hong Kong comprised of countryside, the university provides an excellent environment for academic and personal growth.

The Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages is a young and vibrant Department established in 2004, devoted to the study of language and mind, with strengths in theoretical linguistics, language acquisition, bilingualism, sign linguistics, and language disorders.

  • PhD in computer science, psychology, linguistics, or a related field

  • Postdoctoral research experience and/or a strong publication record commensurate with rank

  • Strong computer programming background, especially in large language model pre-training and fine-tuning
