Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in the Centre for Water Technology and Policy (Ref.: 517539), to commence as soon as possible for one year, with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance.

The Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Engineering, in collaboration, have jointly established the Centre for Water Technology and Policy to conduct cutting-edge research on water science, technology and policy issues relating to the broader urban sustainability agenda. The Centre is dedicated to pursuing excellence in research and teaching on water policy-technology interface issues, and to reaching out to the larger community to stimulate discussion on salient research findings.  

Applicants should possess (i) a Ph.D. degree in a Social Sciences discipline or a Ph.D. degree in ecology or environmental science; (ii) excellent writing and speaking skills in English; and (iii) a good track record in conducting environmental research projects. Fluency in Chinese is a plus. 

The appointee is expected to participate in the Centre’s research projects in the areas of freshwater ecology, water reuse and management, forging the technology-policy nexus. He/She will work closely with the Centre’s Executive Director and a team of Investigators from the Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Social Sciences to conduct research in water policy in a predominantly independent manner. He/She will be responsible for overseeing data collection, conducting water policy analysis, and preparing manuscripts for publications in peer-reviewed journals and books. He/She will also assist with developing funding proposals. The appointee is expected to contribute to the Centre’s teaching and learning activities and other public engagement projects as well. 

A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits. 

The University only accepts online application for the above post. Applicants should apply online and upload an up-to-date C.V., transcripts and a writing sample. Review of applications will start as soon as possible and will continue until December 15, 2022, or until the post is filled, whichever is earlier.
