Open Rank Tenure-Track Positions in Strategy/OB/HR at Zhejiang University


Zhejiang University (ZJU) is located in Hangzhou, the capital city of Zhejiang Province (one of the most developed provinces in China). 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, e-commerce and digital technologies, ideal for conducting business research. Here, entrepreneurship is deeply embedded in local culture and historic tradition, 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 social 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. 

As China endeavors to build a community with a shared future for mankind, new opportunities abound in its higher education landscape. In 2017, while celebrating its 120th anniversary, ZJU was proudly selected for China’s “Double First-Class” Initiative. Embarking on a new journey, ZJU is keen to further open up to the world and collaborate globally for the betterment of public welfare.
