Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme - HKBU

HKBU Faculty of Arts emphasizes the contributions of art and culture to society. With five departments (Chinese Language and Literature; English Language and Literature; Humanities and Creative Writing; Music; and Religion and Philosophy), one Programme (Translation), a Language Centre, four research centres (for Applied Ethics; Chinese Cultural Heritage; Sino-Christian Studies; and Translation), and two research institutes (the Jao Tsung-I Academy of Sinology and the Mr Simon Suen and Mrs Mary Suen Sino-Humanitas Institute), the Faculty of Arts at HKBU offers an especially rich environment for comparative, cross-cultural research of global relevance. More information about the Faculty of Arts can be found here: http://artsbu.hkbu.edu.hk/index.php/en/ The attached leaflet (Fellowship scheme HKBU) outlines the origins of the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme. The leaflet also provides an overview of the application process and of the terms of the fellowship. Students recruited from near and far have found Hong Kong to be a very exciting place to pursue their PhD research. With its deep commitment to Liberal Arts education, HKBU has a lot to offer Arts and Humanities students. It is an especially good time to be joining HKBU as a PhD student, for the University is, among other things, in the process of recruiting 100 academics on a global basis, through an ambitious Talent100 programme. Enquiries about the scheme or the application process should be addressed to Professor Robert Neather (trans at hkbu.edu.hk) or Professor Mette Hjort (arts at hkbu.edu.hk. http://artsbu.hkbu.edu.hk/index.php/en/
