Since its establishment in 1991, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has positioned itself as an international university which emphasizes on both teaching and research. Over the years, HKUST has been making strides progressively in education, research, knowledge transfer, and community services. Leveraging on the academic leadership in higher education and impending development of China’s innovation-driven Greater Bay Area (GBA), HKUST welcomes the opportunity to establish a new campus in Guangzhou (GZ), Mainland China.

The Ministry of Education of People’s Republic of China officially approved the preparatory status of HKUST (GZ) in September 2019. Preparatory work on areas such as academic planning, institutional structure, and campus development for HKUST (GZ) is underway. Located in Qingsheng, Nansha in Guangzhou, HKUST (GZ) covers 1.13 square kilometers. The first phase of construction of the GZ campus is expected to be completed in 2022. At steady state, the number of undergraduate and postgraduate students will reach a total of 10,000.

The University now starts to invite applications or nominations for faculty and administration openings at all levels. Details on the ranks and number of positions available may change as the new campus develops. All open positions are Mainland China appointments to be offered by the HKUST(GZ), a Mainland entity, in accordance with the local employment laws and regulations. Appointments will be made on a fixed-term contract of up to three years, renewable subject to performance, mutual agreement and funding availability.

English is the medium of instruction and administration at HKUST(GZ) campus. HKUST(GZ) is committed to diversity in recruitment and equal opportunity employment and we encourage suitable candidates of diverse backgrounds to submit their applications.
