Two-Year Research Post-Doc at The University of Hong Kong
Applications due by 18 April 2011

Founded in 1911, The University of Hong Kong is committed to the highest international standards of excellence in teaching and research, and has been at the international forefront of academic scholarship for many years. Ranked 21st among the top 200 universities in the world by the UK’s Times Higher Education, the University has a comprehensive range of study programmes and research disciplines spread across 10 faculties and about 100 sub-divisions of studies and learning. There are over 23,400 undergraduate and postgraduate students coming from 50 countries, and more than 1,200 members of academic and academic-related staff, many of whom are internationally renowned.

The Society of Scholars in the Humanities at the University of Hong Kong is a society of young scholars involved in cutting-edge research. It is designed to encourage critical and creative thought both within and between the disciplines in the Arts and Humanities. There are two research Scholarships for 2011: one in Art History and one in History.

Each Scholarship is for two years and is non-renewable. Applicants are invited from all educational institutions across the world. The Scholarships are intended for researchers early in their careers to carry out innovative research. Candidates are expected to be either graduate students in the final stages of their Ph.D. studies, or researchers who have been awarded their Ph.D. degree for not more than two years from the date of application. Details about the Society and FAQs are available at: http://www.soh.hku.hk/scholars/2011/index.html.

Scholars will be provided with free accommodation, office space, airfares for overseas candidates, a research grant of up to HK$14,000 a year, and a stipend of HK$22,000 per month. (Scholars who have not yet been awarded a Ph.D. degree will receive a salary of HK$18,000 per month.) Successful candidates will be appointed as Research Scholar. (more…)
