Department
Description

The School of Advanced Technology has five departments (intelligent Science, Computing, Mechatronics and

staff are committed to providing our students with a challenging and stimulating environment, as well as unlocking their full potential.
Upon graduation, students will become highly-sought-after candidates with strong academic knowledge as well as extensive transferable skills
in communication, team-work and project management.

Responsibilities and Duties

Supporting its rapid expansion, SAT now seeks to appoint senior
faculty to join the EEE department. This is an exciting opportunity for a senior academic and established researcher to become part of a
young, fast-growing, and internationally recognized institution situated in the heart of one of China’s most innovative and
entrepreneurial economic areas. XJTLU is a research-led university. In this context, even though the workload of faculty in SAT is generally
shared between teaching, research, and service, faculty members are expected to spend the majority of their time on research, followed by
teaching, then service. Research activities include the publication of research articles, attendance of international conferences, and
applications for research funding. Research performance in the School is benchmarked on internationally recognized lists of journal quality
such as the CAS JCR Q1 journals.
