CUHK is an international, research-intensive university whose faculty engages in effective teaching, innovative research, and impactful service. The Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages is a young and vibrant Department established in 2004. The primary medium of instruction is English at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Applicants should have (i) a PhD degree in a related discipline; (ii) strong commitment to excellence in research and teaching; and (iii) outstanding accomplishments in theoretical linguistics, with a focus on syntax and semantics. Research expertise in the languages of China and the region will be an advantage.

The appointee will (a) teach undergraduate and postgraduate linguistics courses; (b) supervise projects and theses of undergraduate, MA, MPhil and PhD students; (c) develop research in his/her areas of expertise; and (d) undertake administrative duties.

Appointment will normally be made on contract basis for up to three years initially commencing August 2015, which, subject to mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation later.

Salary and Fringe Benefits

Salary will be highly competitive, commensurate with qualifications and experience. The University offers a comprehensive fringe benefit package, including medical care, plus a contract-end gratuity for an appointment of two years or longer and housing benefits for eligible appointees.
