Human Resources (by 2013.12.31)
DICP has put great emphasis on developing innovative research teams. We believe that human resources are our greatest assets and that both human and intellectual capabilities, as well as individual and team efforts, must be brought together. The Institute also places great importance on attracting outstanding talents to our institute through many well established national programs, such as “National Thousand Talent Program”, “CAS Hundred Talent Program”, the “Overseas Famous Scholar Program”, and “CAS International Partnership Program for Innovative Teams.” At DICP, we have also set up our own “DICP Hundred Talent Program” and “DICP Partnership Professor Program,” along with DICP Honorary Professorships, full- and part-time faculty, and a visiting professor program. At the same time, we continue to perfect our human resource system and have initiated several programs, such as “Group Cluster” and the “Innovative Special-Zone Group” to promote collaborations in both fundamental and applied research. We also set up a program of deputy PIs and project managers to support research teams. In addition, we also implemented a program to recruit top PhD graduates to join our research faculties. Through the development of these human resource programs, we intend to build our competitive edges in both basic and applied researches, with emphasis on both individual career development and team effort.
