Open Faculty Positions at South China Advanced Institute for Soft Matter Science and Technology of SCUT

South China Advanced Institute for Soft Matter Science and Technology (AISMST), located at the Wushan campus of South China University of Technology (SCUT) in Guangzhou, was established in May 2016. AISMST is a research institution administrated directly by SCUT. It’s designed as a pilot area for this university to explore the foundation of world-class research institutions. By adopting the advanced management and operation system in line with the world, AISMST seeks to build an international basic and application research platform with interdisciplinary cutting-edge science and technology. Meanwhile, the science, engineering and technology for materials development are integrated in AISMST to satisfy the specific industry needs of Guangdong Province. In particular, the AISMST focuses on high level fundamental research and technological innovation in the fields of soft matter, and is building the platforms for hybrid functional materials, nanomedicine/biomaterials, high performance polymer materials and novel energy materials.

As the 3rd campus of SCUT, the Guangzhou International Campus (GZIC) of SCUT was constructed jointly by MOE, Guangdong Provincial Government, Guangzhou Municipal Government and SCUT in 2018. The School of Molecular Science and Engineering (MoSE) was emerged as one of the first batch four-schools in GZIC. In 2019, the MoSE school enrolled the first cohort of undergraduate students. The AISMST serves as the core of new founded MoSE, thus acquires much increased opportunity and resource to develop into world-class innovation center for soft matter materials.

For the better development of this institute, we are looking for talents in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology and materials related to soft matter from around the world.
