About the University (学校简介)

Guangdong Technion – Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT) is a satellite university of Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, locating in Shantou, China. Technion is world-renowned for its exceptional research and education. Since 2004, three faculty members in Technion received the Nobel prize, consistently ranked as a top-100 university. All MSc and Ph.D. students are enrolled at Technion and co-advised by a Technion faculty member. MSc and Ph.D. students will spend one to two semesters at Technion for courses, while performing research at GTIIT. With the completion of a thesis, students will receive the diploma awarded by Technion.


About the Group (课题组简介)

Dr. Youhua Jiang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Jiang received his Ph.D. from Stevens Institute of Technology in 2018, followed by the postdoctoral training at Northwestern University. Dr. Jiang specializes in Interfacial Phenomena, including various research directions such as interfacial fluid dynamics, phase-change heat transfer, colloids and interfaces, and physical chemistry. Dr. Jiang has authored nearly 20 papers in the leading journals of Interfacial Phenomena, including Physical Review Letters, Applied Physics Letters, Langmuir, Soft Matter, and J. Colloid and Interface Science. Dr. Jiang served on the Editorial Board of Surface Innovations, a JCR-Q2 Journal, and served as reviewer for 19 journals.

姜又华博士从2020年10月开始在GTIIT担任机械系助理教授。他博士毕业于斯蒂文斯理工,并在西北大学接受博士后训练。该课题组着力于研究界面现象,微流体,相变换热,胶体与界面等。姜博士已发表近20篇论文,大多发表在该领域顶级期刊,一作包括PRL, APL, Langmuir, Soft Matter, JCIS等,并担任JCR二区期刊Surface Innovations的编委及19个期刊的审稿人。

Recruitment Information and Criteria (招生招聘信息及要求)


There are 3-4 openings for fully funded MSc and Ph.D. students.


  1. Students enrolled in the Mechanical Engineering Department are required to complete the GRE. The Analytical Writing of GRE needs to be no less than 3.5. Exceptional students without GRE scores can join the group as Research Assistants, and officially apply later. GTIIT是欧美体系学校,申请需要提供GRE成绩。如还没有GRE成绩,可以先以科研助理身份入职再考。GRE的写作需要不低于5。
