Zhongfa Aviation University (ZFAU) seeks exceptional faculty members from all over the world for its School of Civil Aviation, School of Aerospace, School of Informatics, School of Engineering and School of Science.
Zhongfa Aviation University, funded by Zhejiang Province and the city of Hangzhou, is jointly established by Beihang University and Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile (ENAC). The university is dedicated to multidisciplinary and innovation-oriented education as well as cutting-edge and core technology research. With the goal of becoming a world-class research university, ZFAU will stay committed to establishing a new international university model that is modern and forward-thinking. The campus of ZFAU is situated adjacent to Liangzhu Ancient City, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. The picturesque campus is expected to be completed by 2023 and will provide the most conducive environment for students and staff to live and work. In the present preparatory stage, the university operates from an interim campus in the northwest of Hangzhou.
