2019 HZNU Global Outstanding Young Scholars Recruitment

About the Forum

As Hangzhou has become the Chinese city with the highest net inflow rate of overseas talent, Hangzhou Normal University (HZNU), located in this city, has become one of the fastest-growing universities in China in recent years. Taking talent as its "core motive force" of development and with an open spirit for talent and a competitive salary structure, the prestigious University, rooted in its 120 years of history, has created the best "ecological environment for talent", where a large number of educators, artists and other talented people have graduated, including a world-class entrepreneur, Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba. Over the past years, the University's Essential Science Indicators (ESI) and Natural Index (NI) have consecutively entered the top 100 in China, and its national research platform and international cooperation in science and technology have also made unprecedented progress.
