Top Professors to Begin Research Work at Shenzhen University
The five leading professors chosen are experts in the fields of medicine, optics and mathematics. Two of the professors hail from the United States and Britain, while the remaining three are all from China. The five professors will officially begin working on their research and lectures at Shenzhen University this January.
Depending on their achievements and academic status, the professors will earn an annual salary between 600,000 yuan to 1.2 million yuan. They will also receive seed funds to help start their research with funds to range from 1.5 million yuan up to 3 million yuan. Shenzhen University will be setting up laboratories in the medical science, chemistry, and optical electrical sciences for the five professors.
The global recruitment plan was a strategy set in motion in hopes of attracting high end professors to Shenzhen. The city allocated 30 million yuan as a base fund for the recruitment plan to catch the attention of professors. Shenzhen University hopes to attract 20 to 30 more professors to its campus in the next 5 to 10 years.
