The Department of Languages and Cultures is offering a career opportunity in Chinese Studies. The Department provides a full range of courses in its core languages from introductory level to Honours and Graduate Programmes. We have a vigorous research culture and have achieved a gratifying level of graduate completions since the Department’s inception in 2004.
Applicants must have a PhD in Chinese studies. We welcome applicants whose research encompasses areas of classical or modern Chinese humanities, including cultural and literary studies, Sinophone studies, and Chinese thought. Strong commitment to research and scholarly publications are required; a track record of applying for and acquiring research funding is also desirable.
The capacity to be self-motivated and to work well as part of a team within the Chinese Programme and the wider Department of Languages and Cultures is essential.
The successful candidate will demonstrate evidence of native or near-native ability in both Chinese and English and will be expected to teach all levels of language, courses in literature in translation, culture courses, contribute actively to cross-disciplinary research and teaching (e.g., papers in Asian Studies), as well as advising graduate students.
Applications quoting reference number 1201761 will close on Monday, 11 February 2013.
