The important indicator of a world-class university as well as its international outlook lies in a strong contingent of teachers with high international academic caliber. Therefore, USTC plans to introduce the “Visiting Professor International” project, which strives to make the most out of international cooperation resources and to be more flexible so as to introduce internationally prominent teachers of the new era to USTC. Jointly led, coordinated and implemented by the Office of International Cooperation, the Human Resource Department, the Graduate School and the Office of Teaching Affairs, this project expressly gives precedence to academic study and research and, strict adherence to structure optimization. The basic principle is to persevere in strict assessment, merit-based employ, contract administration and dynamic adjustment.
