Applications are invited for: Department of Fine Arts, Assistant Professor/Associate Professor (contemporary art) (Ref: 230002T7. Closing date: December 22, 2023).

The Department of Fine Arts in the Faculty of Arts at CUHK offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in studio art and art history. Its curriculum adopts an inclusive approach to Chinese art and culture—traditional, modern, international and contemporary, with particular emphasis on the connection between contemporary Chinese and Western art.

The Department invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor/Associate Professor in the field of broadly defined contemporary art. The appointee is expected to contribute to the study of contemporary art on a global scale.

Applicants should have (i) a relevant doctoral degree; (ii) related teaching experience at university level; (iii) a good track record of research or strong research capacity and potential; (iv) ability to teach a wide range of courses in contemporary art and curatorship (with a focus on China and Hong Kong); and (v) ability to teach effectively in both English and Chinese.

Duties include (a) teaching; (b) conducting research and securing research grants; (c) supervise students’ researches (able to supervise Master of Fine Arts and practice-based PhD students); and (d) assisting in administration, course co-ordination and project development work as assigned.

Appointment will normally be made on contract basis for up to three years initially commencing August 2024, which, subject to mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation later.

Application procedure
Applicants please upload the full resume with a cover letter, copies of academic credentials, publication list with abstracts of selected published papers, a research plan, a teaching statement, together with names and e-mail addresses of three referees to whom the applicant’s consent has been given for their providing reference (unless otherwise specified).
