The University of Macau is a leading higher educational institution in Macao and is making strides towards becoming internationally recognized for its excellence in teaching, research and service to the community. The university is growing rapidly with a number of new strategic initiatives including the relocation to a new campus. The new campus will be 20 times larger than the present one with a projected increase of 40% in student intake and faculty size. English is the University’s working language.

The Department of Communication of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities (FSH) invites applications for the position of Full Professor and Department Head in the following area:
