Tenure-track Faculty Positions in School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Nanjing University

I. About the School

The School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (SCCE) at Nanjing University (NJU) is amongst the oldest colleges and departments in China. The Chemistry Department can be traced back to 1920, and was later amalgamated by the Chemistry Department of the former Central University and the Chemistry Department of the former Jinling University. SCCE was set up in 1993, and is now composed of three departments: Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Polymer Science and Engineering. In 2017 and 2021, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Technology were selected into the list of national first-class construction disciplines.

SCCE has 161 faculty members, 3 members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 9 Cheung Kong Scholars of Ministry of Education (MOE), 27 winners of National Science Foundation of China (NSFC) fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, 38 national outstanding young talents.

SCCE hosts the State Key Laboratory of Coordination Chemistry, the State Key Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry for Life Science, the Key Laboratory of Mesoscopic Chemistry of Ministry of Education and the Key Laboratory of High Performance Macromolecule Materials and Technology of Ministry of Education.

SCCE has established extensive international cooperation and academic exchanges with foreign institutions. It has hosted and sponsored a number of international conferences, symposiums and workshops on various topics. Many world leading chemists including several Nobel laureates have been invited to present lectures. Faculty members have been regularly invited to give plenary and keynote talks in the international conferences and symposiums.
