The Global Academic Fellows Programme was created to provide outstanding and aspiring legal academics with time and resources to transition into the global teaching market. Fellows will have access to an internationally leading faculty for mentorship, affiliation with related research centers, and funding for attending academic conferences to present their work. Other opportunities will include teaching Fellows’ own course or gaining experience in core courses, and organizing funded academic conferences in their field. Applicants should have completed their degrees (JD, JSD, or PhD) before the start of their appointments, unless they possess significant practice experience. Successful candidates will be appointed at the grade of Post-doctoral Fellow.
One to three fellows will be appointed each year, and will be expected to be in residence at HKU and devote their time primarily to their own research and preparation for entering the international teaching market. Fellows will be provided shared office space and administrative support when needed.
A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave, housing subsidy, relocation allowance and full medical benefits. At current rates, salaries tax does not exceed 15% of gross income.
