Xi'an Jiaotong University, as one of the first universities entering China's "211 Project" and “985 Project”, is selected to be developed into a global first-class university. Xi'an Jiaotong University is a comprehensive research university with scientific focus. It is composed of 10 branches of learning, namely: science, engineering, medicine, economics, management, literature, law, philosophy, education and art. In recent years, Xi’an Jiaotong University focuses on national strategy, vigorously promoting the establishment of the Western China Science & Technology Innovation Harbour, which is designed to be an innovative unit with a union of “campus, industrial zone and community”, a combination of technologies and services, and a link center of science, technology and industry. The Innovation Harbour, relying on four major disciplines of science, engineering, medicine and social sciences, establishes 23 research institutes covering power electronics, high-end equipment manufacturing, energy and power, IT, advance materials, aerospace aviation, biomedicine, environmental protection, etc, aiming at building a “great scientific research platform” for interdisciplinary researches and services at national level. With the purpose of constructing advanced “Large-scale Scientific Facilities”, like “Z Pinch Large Research Infrastructures”, at strategic level, this platform involves Western China Energy Research Institute, Western China Quality Science & Technology Research Institute, National Innovation Center for Addictive Manufacturing (3D printing) and so on. The Innovation Harbour will gather large numbers of outstanding talents in western China.
Xi’an Jiaotong University is one of the first universities approved to establish Post Doctoral Scientific Research Mobile Station. The 25 stations cover all disciplines of the university. In order to follow the “Belt and Road Initiatives” and the goal of developing into a global first-class university, the university plans to organize a considerable contingent of scientific researchers with outstanding innovation ability to undertake significant scientific research tasks. Therefore, the university would like to invite young elite talents in China and abroad to join in post-doctoral research teams, where you can get favorable payment and excellent platform for career development.
