LOCATION: Xiamen University, Zhangzhou Campus, China

Full Time: 36.25 hours per week

Salary: £39,347 to £54,395

We are looking for skilled creatives, designers, teachers, and researchers to join us in beautiful, sub-tropical, South-East China. The Institute of Creativity and Innovation (ICI) is a dual-degree institute founded by Xiamen University (XMU) and the University for the Creative Arts (UCA). We’re located on XMU’s Zhangzhou campus, which boasts a park-like atmosphere, with mountains on one side and Amoy Bay on the other. It’s a short commute to beautiful beaches, or the city of Xiamen, the multicultural centre of South-East China.

Our Teaching Fellows and Senior Teaching Fellows will have a deep understanding of subject-specific principles and their application, combined with the ability to engage and inspire students. 

We have multiple requirements, and these will be permanent contracts. UCA offers a competitive compensation package that includes:

  • 35 days of personal holiday 
  • Enrolment in the Teacher’s pension scheme
  • Medical Insurance coverage in China for self and family
  • Visa application expenses for self and family
  • Flight cost
  • Settling-In Allowance
  • Annual repatriation (home visit) allowance
  • Free accommodation in China for self and family
  • School or Nursery/ Pre-school allowance
  • Tax advice

The right candidates will hold a higher degree in a relevant field along with professional experience of at least two consecutive years of teaching in the higher education sector or a teaching certification. Active research in the field or ongoing professional practice are considered assets.

We are looking for the passion and drive needed to contribute to the successful establishment of the Institute and to contribute to the ongoing development of its course portfolio in line with the needs of the emerging Chinese creative industries.

If you would welcome an informal chat about the role before applying, or any aspect of living and working in China, please contact Stephen Manning by email (Stephen.Manning@uca.ac.uk) providing your contact details. 

Come and join a growing community of design professionals in a location that inspires creativity – you won’t be disappointed.

Priority will be given to applicants with experience working in the UK, or other countries where courses are taught in English.

Candidates must be able to meet the Chinese visa requirements. UCA will assist with obtaining a visa.

Interviews will be ongoing; this role will remain open until filled. 

At UCA, creativity and innovation are at the heart of what we do. Our legacy of educating eager and passionate artists, makers, and thinkers runs back almost 160 years, and today we’re helping shape a global future that supports and nourishes talent worldwide.

The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) aims to be a welcoming and inclusive University that is truly representative of all of the diversity in society. We particularly encourage applications from people from minoritised ethnic groups and people with disabilities who are currently under-represented within the University.
