Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech, based in Shenzhen/China) has just celebrated the establishment of the School of Life Science.

We are searching for outstanding scientists in all major research areas of modern life sciences as well as those with expertise in interdisciplinary research directions including but not limited to chemical biology, quantitative biology, and systems biology. The School strives to become a leading life science research institute in the nation and a major intellectual engine for the health science and biotechnology industry in Shenzhen and the Greater Bay Area. Successful candidates are expected to establish an independent and internationally recognized research program and to contribute to the missions of the School in undergraduate and graduate education.

The School currently has 38 faculty members with different nationalities working in diverse research areas (https://bio.sustech.edu.cn/).
