CAS Visiting Professorships for Senior International Scientists (Visiting Professorships Program) is launched in 2008. The aim of the Program is to enhance the science & technology innovation capacity of CAS institutes by inviting accomplished researchers from overseas to participate in research in CAS with the hope of strengthening the cooperation and exchange between CAS institutes and international research institutions and universities.
The Visiting Professorships Program provides for visits of 2-12 months duration. CAS will provide each recipient with a grant to cover the recipient’s salary, daily living allowance, and health insurance, from 400,000 to 500,000 RMB (pre-tax) per year, the exact amount being determined according to the length of the visit and the academic level of the visitor. Also, CAS will also provide a round-trip (economy-class) international airfare between the airport located nearest to the visitor’s home and that nearest to the host institute.
Candidates for the Visiting Professorships Program must meet the following criteria:
1. Citizenship of a nation that has formal diplomatic relations with the
People’s Republic of China.
2. Hold a PhD degree, with academic standing as a Professor, Associate Professor or equivalent.
3. Good communication skills in English or Chinese, able to communicate independently in their place of work.
4. Commitment to abide by the laws of the People’s Republic of China and the relevant regulations of CAS and the host institute.
Applications should be submitted to CAS during two specific periods each year. The first round of applications is from March 1-15 and the second from September 1-15.
