Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Linguistics and Chinese Culture Studies Faculty of Humanities, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Deadline November 18, 2010

The Faculty of Humanities (FH) at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University is calling for candidates for post-doctoral research fellow positions in linguistics and Chinese culture related areas. The application deadline is November 18, 2010 to be eligible for both university-wide competition and for consideration for faculty-funded positions.  Success candidates are expected to report to work between spring 2011 and summer 2011.

 

Application details are found at http://www.polyu.edu.hk/ro/main_pdf-scheme.html. Monthly salary will be HK$25,000 plus HK$1,000 mandatory retirement fund contribution. The total is roughly equivalent to US$3,300/month.

 

In order to boost our research profile and seek academic excellence, FH has committed funding for five post-doctoral fellow positions. Short-listed candidates for university-wide competition will be given guaranteed position with FH funding. It is also important to note that the conversion of HK’s current 3 year university curriculum to 4 year curriculum in 2012 is likely to require several additional faculty positions. Given these two converging situation, these post-doctoral fellowship positions offer excellent career development opportunities for young scholars in all areas in linguistics, and in China studies related areas.
