Open Rank Tenure-Track Positions at School of Management, Zhejiang University
WHO ARE WE?
Zhejiang University (ZJU) is located in Hangzhou, the capital city of Zhejiang Province. Hangzhou used to be famous for the beautiful West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and now it is a hub of China’s thriving private economy and e-commerce, ideal for conducting business research. Here, entrepreneurship is deeply embedded in local culture, and that is why the term ‘zheshang’ (literally, business persons from Zhejiang Province) has become a piece of common Chinese vocabulary.
As a leading university in Asia, ZJU has a long-standing commitment to seeking truth and pursuing innovation. The University has been deeply dedicated to nurturing high-caliber innovators and future leaders for an increasingly interconnected world, to encouraging interdisciplinary and creative research that addresses challenges the world faces today, and to translating knowledge and creativity to benefit wider communities.
With a history spanning more than 120 years, ZJU has been firmly embedded in the dynamics of the fast-growing country, where the University’s enterprising and forward-thinking ethos is recognized as an invaluable asset.
The School of Management at Zhejiang University was founded when China started the Opening-up. Innovation is in the School’s genes. For over thirty years, the School has been a very significant part of China’s systematic management training, innovation and entrepreneurship nurturing, full-spectrum management researching, and international business learning.
Teaching, researching, and providing social services – at the School of Management, we see these functions of higher education as intrinsically connected and inseparable. We think that a good faculty member bases her self-growth on researching, gains self-worth by servicing social communities, and regards good teaching as her ultimate purpose of career. In this new era that we find ourselves, we believe that scholars such as this make positive changes.
