The Chinese University of Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading universities. Its location makes it one of the most exciting places to research on and teach architecture. The School of Architecture has a world-class, research-led and professionally connected learning environment. It embraces new approaches to architectural education and cross-disciplinary research that impact on the society and profession. The School has an ambitious growth plan and has created a number of opportunities for new Assistant Professors and Associate Professors. It is seeking outstanding candidates to make significant contributions to research and teaching, to both diversify its portfolio and support its existing strengths in professional architectural education and scholarship. The School is actively building a more diverse and inclusive environment. Qualified individuals from underrepresented sections of society are encouraged to apply.

The appointees will drive forward a research agenda and deliver teaching for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, while building research collaborations within the University and beyond. They will be key players in the School’s agenda on innovation, cities and environments.
