Date:12-12-2018 Print

The talent recruitment team of Institute of Physics (IOP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) went to Japan to recruit local talents from December 7 to 10, 2018. Two talent recruitment meetings were respectively held at Osaka University on December 7 and at the University of Tokyo on December 10. Over 80 international scientists and students attended the two meetings.

At the events, Prof. Hu Jiangping, Deputy Director of IOP, and three other professors including Prof. Fan Heng, Prof. Sun Yang, and Prof. Cheng Jinguang, introduced IOP to present students and scholars. They emphasized IOP’s slogan of “Double First-class”. That is, IOP would create first-class scientific achievements and provide first-class benefits to its staff members. They also detailed the main research progress of IOP in recent years, its future development plan and talent recruitment policies, as well as its advantages in benefit packages, research funding, academic atmosphere, assessment system, and logistical support. In addition, they highlighted IOP's future plan of “One Village and Three Lakes” — to develop IOP headquarters in Zhongguancun for basic research, to construct the Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory in Dongguan City, One Facility & Two Centers near Yanqi Lake, Huairou District of Beijing, and the science commercialization and academic exchange center in the Yangtze River Delta Physics Research Center near Tianmu Lake, Liyang City. In the future, Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory will develop 4 core blocks, including the public technology platform & large-scale scientific facilities, the frontier research section, the model factory for innovation, and the Guangdong-Hongkong-Macau Center for Interdisciplinary Sciences. The One Facility & Two Centers in Huairou refers to the Synergetic Extreme Condition User Facility, the Center for Clean Energy, and the Center for Materials Genome Initiative.

IOP's dynamic development and strong support for talents greatly impressed scientists and students present at the meetings. In a lively atmosphere, they talked with IOP talent recruitment team for more details. After gaining a deep understanding of IOP’s research activities, its One Village & Three Lakes plan, and policies for talent recruitment, many of them expressed the strong willingness to work in IOP in the future.

In recent years, to support the development of One Village & Three Lakes, IOP has put great emphasis on overseas talent recruitment. Apart from the annual talent recruitment events and talent interviews at the American Physical Society (APS) March Meeting, IOP has rolled out many other recruitment events, such as the talent recruitment meetings at Harvard University and Materials Research Society Fall Meeting in November 2017, at Stanford University in March 2018, at German Physical Society Spring Meeting and Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in March 2018, at IEEE International Magnetics Conference and National University of Singapore in April 2018, at American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition in August 2018, and at Delft University of Technology in Netherlands, Imperial College London and the University of Cambridge in the UK in August to September 2018. In the future, IOP talent recruitment team will hold more talent recruitment events at other world-renowned research institutions and universities, as well as the scenes of physics-related top international conferences.
