As an innovational capital of science and technology, Shenzhen is supported by its extensive supporting infrastructure, including the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) established in 2006.
“We aim to enhance the innovation capacity of the equipment manufacturing and service industries in the Greater Bay Area (GBA), while fostering start-ups from emerging industries in their development and ownership of proprietary intellectual properties,” said Jianping Fan, president of SIAT.
Renowned for translating fundamental research into industrial applications, its scientists and engineers have built academic and industrial successes beyond the GBA, transforming SIAT into a world-class institute with global impact.
Ensuring sustainable competence
Jointly established by CAS, the Shenzhen municipal government, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong in February 2006, SIAT has accelerated international collaborations in fundamental research, continuing to achieve new milestones in the face of the ongoing pandemic. Extensive efforts are also made to ensure socio-economic benefits, such as its incubation of 958 companies in the fields of emerging industries. These include affordable health care, service robots, electric vehicles, cloud computing, digital cities, nano-medicine, new energy, and new materials.
SIAT has also offered graduate training since 2010, having cultivated more than 9,000 graduates from 15 countries. Established in 2018 as an affiliated university, the University of Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology (U of SIAT) has since provided academic training on all levels from undergraduate to PhD programmes. A new campus is set to open in 2023.
SIAT invites applications from international scholars for faculty positions at the ranks of dean, department head, professor, associate professor, assistant professor, and instructor. U of SIAT offers internationally competitive salary and benefits, as well as generous resources, and start-up funds. The university provides access to state-of-the-art research facilities, as well as strong academic and administrative support for its faculty and trainees to pursue their scientific goals.
