The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (“University”) is established in accordance with the Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Chinese-foreign Cooperation in Running Schools upon approval of the Ministry of Education. It inherits the educational philosophy and academic systems of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It is intended to evolve into a world class research university with strong Chinese cultural influence. It is committed to nurturing high end talents with global perspective, Chinese tradition, and social responsibility.
At present, the University has programmes in science, engineering, economic management, and humanities and social science. Its long term goal is to recruit 11,000 domestic and international students, 7,500 of whom will be undergraduate students and 3,500 Master’s or PhD students.
The University is featured with an international learning environment, a bilingual teaching pedagogy, a collegiate system, general education courses, multidisciplinary programmes, and a student-centered educational philosophy.
The School of Humanities and Social Science (HSS) has two important missions. First, HSS provides foundational education for all university students in multiple areas, including general education, English language competency, Chinese language competency, physical education and fitness, basic competency in instructional technology (IT) applications, etc. These areas lay the foundation for the comprehensive education that all CUHK-Shenzhen students receive.
Beyond the foundational education that HSS provides to all students, HSS intends to become a school of excellence in humanities and social sciences, and will start a series of new and interdisciplinary programs, among which Chinese Culture is one. We welcome high caliber faculty from around the world to join us and establish a top-tier School of Humanities and Social Science in China.

The appointee will be responsible for (a) teaching a course on “Chinese Modern History and Culture” and other relevant courses; (b) designing e-learning materials; and (c) assisting in curriculum development and administrative assignments.
