Facts and Figures
Building a strong faculty team is key to JI’s talent training mission. JI recruits faculty from all over the world. Currently JI has 57 faculty members, who have either graduated from or worked in world-class universities such as Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Oxford, UC Berkeley, Cal Tech, UM, or Princeton. More than half of all JI faculty are foreigners. Many are winners of prestigious awards such as Chang Jiang Scholar, Thousand Talents Program, New Century Talents, Pujiang Scholars, and Shanghai Magnolia Gold and Silver Awards.
Our unique academic environment allows faculty, visiting scholars, and students to keep up with the frontiers of technology. JI’s research projects are funded by Chinese national and municipal governments, local industries, and foreign entities. Our research fields and areas of collaboration grow broader and deepen evermore.
