Professorships for Cheung Kong Scholar's Program, Southwest Jiaotong University

  Southwest Jiaotong University(SWJTU), with an institutional history over 110 years, is situated in the city of Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province, known as Heavenly Kingdom of Abundant Wealth. Until now, it has produced such striking figures as Mao Yisheng and Zhu Kezheng, in addition to more than 40 Members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences(CAS) and of the Chinese Academy of Engineering(CAE). It is now a key university affiliated to the Ministry of Education, and was also one of the first group of institutions in China that had been officially admitted into the 211 Project. With a sophisticated system of institutions that covers the Graduate School, more than 20 colleges, 6 national key disciplines and 55 PhD programs, it is now on its way to the construction of a high-level university typical of academic research that would most feature the university with interdisciplinary harmony covering such disciplines as engineering, science, management, economics, arts, law, agriculture and medicine, though still with its focus on engineering. Now, in terms of the Regulations for the Cheung Kong Scholar's Program and the Promotion Project for Creative Teams approved by the Ministry of Education, SWJTU has been officially granted the right to appoint Cheung Kong Scholars and Lecture Professors, and the chances are now open to all applicants both at home and abroad.

  *Have a PhD and be younger than 45 (with exceptions in such disciplines as social sciences and humanities, but no older than 50 in principle); be a full professor for domestic applicants or academically equivalent to a full professor as those in SWJTU for overseas applicants;
  *Be of great learning and scholarship with established achievements universally acknowledged;
  *Be capable of teaching doctoral courses related to the disciplines concerned;
  *Have creative and strategic ideas for the leadership of State-funded projects of key importance, or capable of opening up new fields in the disciplines relevant, keeping on the leading edge and superseding the scholarship of the disciplines at the international level;
  *Have a reasonable mind, critical eyes, friendly personality and productive creativity;
  *Be capable of working at least nine months annually for Cheung Kong Scholars and three months for Lecture Professors.
