140 for 140 Global Recruitment Campaign

To support our thriving agenda, we aim to recruit 140 professoriate staff by 2027, when we will celebrate our 140th anniversary. The “140 for 140” recruitment campaign seeks outstanding scholars across multiple disciplines and at all ranks. Four well-funded programmes open abundant opportunities to the right candidates. • Academic recruits at all ranks are being supported by the HKU Global Professoriate Recruitment Campaign. For this, HKUMed seeks candidates across 10 strategic areas including six emerging fields with potential for scientific and scholarly breakthroughs: data science/big data/AI applications in biomedicine and health; structural, synthetic and computational biology; stem cell and regenerative medicine; cancer biology and therapeutics; emerging infectious diseases; and global health. All ranks may apply, with the possibility of direct tenure to Associate/Full Professor. HKUMed is embarking on a major recruitment drive to support our expanding research portfolio and clinical and teaching activities. In return, we offer abundant opportunities, strong funding support, connections to national and global networks, and an exciting academic culture grounded in innovation, rigorous enquiry and a compassionate commitment to improving human health.
