Professor/Associate Professor/Assistant Professor in Modern Chinese Literature
Applications are invited for appointment as tenure-track Professor/Associate Professor/Assistant Professor in Modern Chinese Literature in the School of Chinese, on a three-year fixed-term basis, with the possibility of renewal and with consideration for tenure before the expiry of a second three-year fixed-term contract.
