Westlake emphasizes interdisciplinary research and is particularly interested in faculty whose research bridges and extends traditional fields of study.

In addition, Westlake University has a number of advantages rarely found elsewhere. First, opportunities for collaboration arise spontaneously as faculty and students from diverse disciplines interact daily in the coffee shop, cafeteria, faculty club, lounges, and seminar rooms of our compact, walkable campus. Second, all faculty members joining Westlake during its formative years will contribute to the exciting rise of a new, private research university, the first of its kind in the history of China. As the university grows and develops, faculty will realize their own dreams and together build an exceptional institution designed to be a world-class model of higher education and research. Third, by virtue of the size and culture of Westlake, you will join a collegial group of scholars where your opinions are valued. You will help establish the standards and traditions of a new institution, a once-in-a-lifetime privilege afforded to only a small group.
