A PhD in the field of aquatic animal health, preferably with expertise in veterinary immunology or nutrition, and working experience with warm water species in the Asian region. A degree in veterinary medicine registerable in Hong Kong is an important asset.  Candidates should have demonstrable evidence of research success (including the ability to obtain research funding), strong interpersonal skills to work collaboratively as a member of an academic team, and be able to deliver courses in English.  Knowledge of Chinese (Putonghua and/or Cantonese) would be an advantage.
