International Visiting Professor Program
International Visiting Professor Program strives to make the most out of international cooperation resources and to be more flexible so as to introduce internationally prominent teachers of the new era to USTC. Jointly led, coordinated and implemented by the Office of International Cooperation, the Human Resource Department, the Graduate School and the Office of Teaching Affairs, this program expressly gives precedence to academic study and research and, strict adherence to structure optimization. The basic principle is to persevere in strict assessment, merit-based employment, contract administration and dynamic adjustment.
Employers (schools/national (key) laboratories) can recommend candidates to the Office of International Cooperation who can contribute to the pursuit for discipline construction, teaching excellence and scientific research. Review will be conducted twice annually by the Review and Evaluation Board composed of specialists recommended by the Office of International Cooperation, the Human Resource Department, the Graduate School and the Office of Teaching Affairs. This project has been implemented seven times since its launch in 2013, and has already engaged 95 international visiting professors from 20 countries.
A "visiting professor" must be a tenure-track faculty (a professor, an associate professor, an assistant professor or people with equiv. professional and technical post) in a world-class university who would like to visit and develop scientific research.
