The fellowship is a one-year position, with a possibility of a second year, if the candidate and the University so desire. The work begins in late August. Teaching duties are divided between United College, where Fellows lead their own class in English Conversation, and one of several departments, where Fellows act as Teaching Assistants in a regular course. Williams pays $7000, divided in June and January installments. CUHK adds approximately HK$ 10,000 in monthly salary and a campus apartment that you share with the other Williams person and, possibly, another US fellow. Fellows can, at no additional expense, take Chinese language courses at CUHK, which are encouraged but not required. Fellows are responsible for their own health insurance.
