You must have a PhD in a relevant field, submitted or very near completion, and demonstrable teaching experience in Chinese cultural studies and/or history at university level. Some experience with virtual learning environments and in developing online teaching materials would be desirable. Your research may focus on any aspect of modern or contemporary Chinese culture and/or history. You must be fluent in English and Mandarin. (Although the ability to teach Classical Chinese would be advantageous, this is not an essential requirement.) You must have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to empathize with students.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, as black and minority ethnic (BME) candidates are currently under-represented at this level in this area, we would particularly welcome applications from BME applicants. All appointments will be made on merit.

Please note that we are unable to respond to enquiries, accept CV's or applications from Recruitment Agencies.
