Guangdong Technion – Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT) is a state-of-the-art research university recently established by the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (Haifa, Israel), Shantou University, the Li Ka-shing foundation and the government in Shantou, China. Technion is a world-leading institute of higher education with three Nobel laureates and remains top 50 in global research-based university rankings. Since it was established in 1912, the Technion has been committed to the development of new technology and universally acknowledged as one of the world-top start-up ecosystems and an incubator for future successful entrepreneurs. 


At GTIIT we feature a brand-new campus located in walking distance to Shantou University. GTIIT’s faculty members are recruited globally, including people from the Technion. These individuals are required to play significant roles in education, research and innovation and exploit the synergy between them. The faculty is supposed to conduct research and to act as role models for students regarding research and innovation.


Shantou has an international airport and is connected to the Chinese high-speed rail system. Shantou’s weather is generally pleasant with abundant sunshine – warm dry winters and hot humid summers. The local air quality is good to excellent as Shantou is located at the coast of the South China Sea (283 km east-north-east of Hong Kong).


GTIIT has open positions available in many research areas. We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated and competent Research Fellows to conduct research projects with us.
