2) The research team can assist qualified postdoctoral fellows to apply for the “Guangdong Province Overseas Young Postdoctoral Introduction Project”. That is to say, obtain a doctorate degree from the top 200 universities in the world (excluding domestic, ranking in the previous year’s Times, usnews, qs and Shanghai Jiaotong University’s world university rankings), and engage in postdoctoral research in the postdoctoral station unit in Guangdong Province. It also promises that the postdoctoral fellows who have been on the station for more than 2 years will grant 600,000 yuan of living subsidy to each postdoctoral fellow who has been admitted to the station by the provincial finance after the successful application; for the project funding, they will sign a work agreement or labor contract with the employer in Guangdong after leaving the station, and Post-doctorate who has promised to work in Guangdong for more than 3 years will receive a housing subsidy of 400,000 yuan per person from the provincial finance.
3) Post-doctoral candidates who choose to stay in Shenzhen to engage in scientific research work and have signed a labor (employment) contract with enterprises and institutions in this city for more than 3 years can apply for Shenzhen Postdoctoral Research Funds. The Shenzhen Municipal Government grants 300,000 yuan of research start-up funding per person.
4) For postdoctoral fellows who settled in Shenzhen, they can apply to Shenzhen for a one-time rent and living allowance of 30,000 yuan (tax exemption, independent online application) as a doctor.
5) According to the conditions that you meet, you can apply for “Shenzhen Peacock Program C-level Talents” or “Shenzhen Reserve-level Talents” and enjoy a five-year incentive allowance (tax exemption) of 1.6 million.
6) Provide a good working environment, enjoy subsidies and five social insurances and one housing fund (the research team provides an additional five social insurances and one housing fund equivalent to 35% of salary), and other benefits refer to regular employees.
7) Support as the person in charge to apply for post-doctoral science fund, National Natural Science Foundation of China, and provincial and municipal projects (the research team provides additional rewards).
8) Those who have outstanding performance and intend to study abroad are responsible for recommending well-known research groups in Europe and the United States.
9) Those who are interested in continuing to develop in SUSTech can be hired as a research professor.

Interested parties are welcome to send detailed resumes and related materials to [email protected] . In the letter, please indicate your name + postdoctoral candidate.
Application process: sending resumes-organizing interviews-issuing offers-entry reports.
Sincerely welcome young people interested in scientific research to join!
