Default Recruiting Full-time researcher to Zhongshan School of Medicine, Sun Yat-sen Univ.

Zhongshan School of Medicine (SYSU-SOM) in Guangzhou, China, was established in 1866. As the oldest school of western medicine of China, SYSU-SOM is proud to stand among the top nationwide. SYSU-SOM owns the largest comprehensive healthcare system in China, including 5 general and 3 specialized hospitals and 13 branch community hospitals. A number of medical disciplines such as Clinical Medicine, Biology & Biochemistry, Molecular Biology & Genetics have been ranked top 1% in the world by the ESI system. Two State Key Laboratories (Cancer, Ophthalmology) and 1 National Center for Drug Clinical Research Trials are three national level research centers accredited to SYSU. With over 151 million dollars government research funding annually and over a thousand internationally published papers, including those published in Cell, Science, NEJM, Nature Medicine, Lancet and other top journals, SYSU-SOM represents one of the best research-oriented medical education institution in the country.

We are inviting outstanding young scientists to join some research group in SYSU-SOM. Appointed personnel will receive generous salary, perform cutting edge scientific research, and are encouraged to develop and pursuit their own research interests. Excellent candidates can directly apply for position of associate professor or professor.
