The prospective Ph.D. students to him should have stress resistance (i.e., frustration tolerance with mental health), high motivation (i.e., doing research with a proper intention and attitude), and fair capability (eager to learn and can endure being defeated, cf. "Genius is eternal patience,"-- Leo Tolstoy). If you satisfy the above three merits and would like to pursue a Ph.D. degree, please send your CV and transcript to his email (Wenjun.Fan AT xjtlu.edu.cn).
Further, for any foreign/international applicants aiming for the CSC scholarship, it is recommended that the applicants can come up with their own research proposals.
