Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Chinese and East Asian Business (Dr Abraham Lue Lectureship)

The Lau China Institute at King’s wishes to appoint a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer to research, teach and undertake outreach on contemporary Chinese and East Asian business and in particular Chinese entrepreneurialism. The Chinese economy, since 1978, has become one of the most dynamic in the world, posting double digit growth in the period up to 2012. Today, China ranks as the world’s second largest economy. The postholder will conduct innovative research on the history, development and future trajectory of the Chinese economy and the role of entrepreneurialism within that. Part of the role will be to support existing taught modules in Chinese business, but also to develop new courses, and to supervise research students. The post would suit a candidate with a background in the political economy of contemporary China. Some ability to also engage with research in Hong Kong and Taiwan would also be desirable.

Post duration: Indefinite.


The appointment will be made, dependent on relevant qualifications and experience, within the Grade 6-8 scales, currently £32,958 to £57,674 per annum, plus £2,623 London Allowance per annum.
