Professor/Associate Professor/Assistant Professor in Veterinary Immunology

City University of Hong Kong - Department of Infectious Diseases and Public Health, College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences

The new College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences at City University of Hong Kong, in collaboration with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, is assembling an outstanding group of international academics to undertake teaching and research within the Department of Infectious Diseases and Public Health. This academic unit is rapidly developing as an international research-orientated centre to support veterinary training and research in Hong Kong and the region. The Department is well positioned to provide a strong link between the preclinical veterinary sciences and applied (clinical) veterinary medicine. In another dimension it focuses on One Health, an area spanning the health of animals, humans, and the environment. The Department plays a key role in teaching students in the Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine programme and also in the MSc in Aquatic Production and Veterinary Health, amongst other related activities, such as enabling postgraduate research opportunities.


The appointee is expected to contribute to the further development and implementation of the professional veterinary curriculum in the field of Veterinary Immunology and to build a strong research presence in the new College with a vision to further Emerging Infectious Diseases, Food Safety, and/or Animal Health research, and veterinary education in the region. The appointees will teach and manage undergraduate and postgraduate courses; develop new research directions and maintain robust research programmes; and contribute to administrative work and other duties to facilitate the development of the Department and the College as a whole. Ability and willingness to help support veterinary diagnostic services on occasion and to work with clinicians would be an advantage.


Applicants must have research and teaching experience in Veterinary Immunology, commensurate with the academic level sought. A PhD degree in Veterinary Immunology is required, and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine or equivalent veterinary degree registrable in Hong Kong is highly preferred. Applicants must have a demonstrable international reputation in their area of research expertise, including the ability to attract external research funding and publish in high impact international journals. Candidates for the post of Professor should possess a proven record of distinguished scholarly accomplishments including significant external funding support, strong leadership capabilities, and active participation in undergraduate and postgraduate education.

Salary and Conditions of Service
