Henan University has three campuses, two in Kaifeng, and one currently under construction in Henan's capital city Zhengzhou. Kaifeng is a city with a long history. It was one of the seven ancient capitals of China during the Northern Song Dynasty and features today many scenic spots from that time. The mid-sized city, with its 1 million population, is highly livable and affordable, combining tradition (scenic spots, night markets, recreational areas) with a modern lifestyle (shopping malls, western coffee shops).
We will review applications on a rolling basis until the positions are filled. All interviews will be held remotely. We, therefore, invite applicants to apply early (during October or November).
