Shenzhen (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shenzhen), bordering Hong Kong to the south, is one of China’s wealthiest cities.  The latest statistics show that Shenzhen’s GDP is $294 billion and its per-capita GDP was on par with some of the developed countries of the OECD.  Shenzhen is home to some of the world’s largest and most successful high-tech companies, including Huawei, Tencent, ZTE, BYD, DJI and TP-Link. Many foreign high-tech companies have their China operations centers located in the Science Park next door to the campus of Shenzhen University.

Shenzhen University (SZU), the only comprehensive university of this modern megacity, was established over 30 years ago. SZU is a full-time comprehensive university accredited by the State Council of the People’s Republic of China and is funded by Shenzhen Municipal Government. SZU has over 25 departments offering 72 undergraduate and postgraduate programs ranging from science and engineering to the arts and medicine. It currently has 28,000 undergraduate students, 5500 postgraduate students and over 2500 staff. SZU has established collaboration relationships with 176 overseas universities and attracts over 1,000 international students every year.

The College of Information Engineering (CIE) is one of the largest colleges at SZU. It is home to over 1600 undergraduate, 220 Masters, 50 PhD students and over 100 postdoctoral researchers. The college has nearly 30 supporting staff 60 academic staff (including 17 professors and 18 associate professors). Research strength and interests of the college include intelligent signal processing, modern communications technologies, multimedia processing and information security, and visual information technology and application. Research in the college is well funded by major grants from national and municipal funding agencies. Taking advantages of major high-tech companies next door to the college, we have very close collaboration with major high-tech conglomerates like Huawei, Tencent, ZTE and DJI. The Internet giant Tencent’s new headquarters is just one block away from the College building. 

Supported by major government investment, the college is now embarking on an ambitious expansion programme to enhance its research capacity and to build world-class research teams.  To realize this vision, we are now recruiting highly motivated postdoctoral researchers to join our expanding international research teams. We particularly welcome researchers with interest and expertise in the following areas:                                                                      

Multimedia content security. Areas of interest include information forensic, steganography, forgery detection, image/video/audio signal processing, and pattern recognition and machine learning for multimedia information security applications. Researchers with a PhD in related areas who are interested in multimedia security and multimedia signal processing are encouraged to apply.

Visual information technology and application. Areas of interest include the broad areas of computer vision, image processing, and machine learning and their applications to real world problems such as medical imaging (digital pathology), traffic and pedestrian monitoring, security surveillance, image and video analysis for entertainment and applications, management of large image and video databases, and high dynamic range imaging.

Applicants should have a PhD (or very close to complete a PhD) in computer science, information engineering or electronic engineering or closely related science and engineering disciplines such as applied mathematics and other engineering disciplines.  We offer successful applicant a general compensation package (after tax annual salary can be up to 270,000 RMB or roughly £31,000/€36,000/US$40,000 based on current exchange rate). We offer first class modern working environments with state of the art equipment and computing facilities. The principal researchers in these areas have many years working experience in English speaking universities and research institutions, some have held tenured professor positions overseas. English and Chinese are both working languages in our laboratories and qualified English speaking non-Chinese nationals as well as Chinese nationals are welcome to apply.

To apply, please send a covering letter, a full CV, a research plan and contacts details of 3 academic referees to Professor G Qiu at  qiu@szu.edu.cn

We have multiple positions and recruitment is continuing throughout the year.
