Shenzhen post-doctoral stations stand out


Updated: 2013-11-05

The post-doctoral participation in this year’s CIEP has drawn a lot of attention from Hong Kong universities and scientific research institutions, which will have more than 50 people taking part And, according to the social security bureau’s Zhang, “We’ve prepared more than 150 job posts for post-docs and hope to invite more talented people from China and abroad to join us to build a bright future together.”

Zhang went on to explain, “Shenzhen’s weakness in developing its post-doc programs is in its small number of universities and scientific research institutes, however, its enterprises stand out all across the country in their post-doc development.”

He then added that its post-doc stations are connected to enterprise workstations as well as universities and research institutes and because of the lack of universities and scientific research institutes, enterprises account for most of the workstations and mainly involve applied research that is strong in innovation and applications.

in fact, many young, talented people are not satisfied with theory and research at scientific research institutes and prefer to work with an enterprise on inventions and seeing their results in the marketplace. Lifetech is one such example, with a cardiovascular development based on post-docl research. And a female at Sunwin Intelligent’s postdoctoral innovation base developed a system that can locate people quickly in crowds. So, enterprises can strengthen their independent R&D with good economic results by setting up a postdoc workstation and, post-doc research has played an important role in attracting talented people as well as in developing Shenzhen’s high-tech industry.

The city’s post-doc stations have also become more international over the past few years, with many establishing relations with scientific research institutes at home and abroad. In a fairly short time, a station at the Kuang-Chi Institute has built a team of over 20 post-docs and has applied for at least 1,000 domestic patents and over 20 international ones, with at least 100 approved Most of its post-docs come from universities such as Purdue and Pennsylvania State in the US, Oxford, France’s Rouen, the National University of Singapore, and Delhi University in the fields of artificial meta-materials, microwave electromagnetic fields, and Terahertz devices.
