HKU launches global campaign to recruit top scholars
The University of Hong Kong has officially launched an ambitious global professoriate recruitment campaign to recruit 100 outstanding academics in all fields for world class scholarship. Exceptional candidates will be considered for prestigious endowed professorship as well.
As a leading global university, HKU offers a stimulating and supportive intellectual environment for outstanding scholars to contribute to its thriving research agenda as well as to Hong Kong’s unique position in the region and beyond.
The recruitment targets outstanding scholars but will also include strategically focused signature recruits, firstly ten or more scholars in data science and AI for our new Institute of Data Science (HKU-IDS). Candidates are invited to apply via the campaign webpage (click here to view ).
“We have an ambition to build up a world leading university. Academic excellence is the key to achieving that ambition. The Recruitment Campaign will complement—and is indeed part of—our efforts to nurture our existing talent. Fresh ideas will help to stimulate everyone on campus and energize us all to scale new heights,” said HKU President Professor Xiang Zhang.
The global recruitment campaign seeks to recruit outstanding professoriate staff as assistant, associate, and full professors.
