We will recruit 100 outstanding academics in emerging fields with potential for scientific and scholarly breakthroughs—above and beyond our existing recruitment programme—to join HKU as assistant, associate, or full professors, on tenure-track or with direct tenure.
This is an open-discipline call. Strategic recruitment areas in the Faculty of Medicine include structural, synthetic and computational biology for biomedicine; stem cell and regenerative medicine; cancer biology and therapeutics; emerging infectious diseases; global health and development; and major new population health threats (e.g. antimicrobial resistance; obesity; health consequences of COVID-19).
As a high-performing university with internationally recognised strong global connections, HKU offers a stimulating and supportive intellectual environment as well as a highly competitive remuneration and benefits package. Locally and in the region, there are many research collaboration and funding opportunities.
