He obtained habilitation at Charles University in Prague where he lectured in 1926-1927. Afterwards he taught at Halle University (1928-1931), and Göttingen University (1931-1938), before becoming Chair of Chinese Language and History at Cambridge University.

He researched about the Hundred Schools of Thought, Bactria, Da Yuezhi, and Guanzi texts (cf. Guan Zhong).
