Xi'an Jiaotong University
Founded in 1896, Xi’an Jiaotong University is consistently ranked within the top 15 universities in China. It is a leading research-intensive university, focussing on science and technology subjects. It was prioritised by the State Council of China in the national Project 211 and Project 985, which both aim to strengthen universities in China to create world-class institutions.
To further strengthen our reputation, we uphold high standards in hiring academic staff. All must have been trained at globally distinguished universities and research institutes and have rich teaching and research experience. Collectively they bring an enormous range of expertise and innovative thinking to XJTLU.
To ensure we make effective use of our talented staff, we have established a number of interdisciplinary research institutes, centres and laboratories, focussing on topics ranging from biopharmaceutical science to design, and from quantitative finance to urbanisation.
