The post may also involve a contribution to research methods, placement, and generic skills teaching, as well as project supervision at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Department will consider high quality applications in any area of related teaching and research. This role will include designing and delivering high quality teaching activities, supporting the development of the Hong Kong and Singapore sport management franchise programmes, undertaking individual and joint research to produce high quality, internationally recognised, academic outputs and participating in external activity to generate income and promote the subject.
