CityU is a young, fast-growing, research university. The Department of Physics was founded in 2017, building on the outstanding tradition of the former Department of Physics and Materials Science. The last Research Assessment Exercise conducted by the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong, ranked CityU’s physics second in Hong Kong. Why work for us The department is undergoing major expansion. Our existing faculties conduct world-class research, and our teaching curriculum is internationally benchmarked. Hong Kong, Asia’s gateway to the world, provides excellent graduate student support, attracting top students from China, south-east Asia, and elsewhere in the world. As a truly international city, Hong Kong offers a unique lifestyle where East meets West, tradition meets contemporary, and mountains meet the ocean. Our compensation package is internationally competitive and commensurate with experience.

Training and development Being a new department, incoming faculties will have a major role to play in shaping the future of the programme. Generous support is provided to new researchers, allowing them to quickly
