Nankai Univ. Teda

TEDA College was jointly established by Nankai University and Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA) in 2000 and serves as one of the three campuses of Nankai University. The academic activities are mainly pursued in 2 InstitutesTEDA Institute of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology andTEDA Institute of Applied Physics.

TEDA Institute of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology

TEDA Institute of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology (formerly known as TEDA School of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology) was established in 2003. The objective of the Institute is to combine the science and technology of Nankai University and the commercial competiveness of Tianjin Economic and Technology Development Area (TEDA) by attracting talents from domestic and international to develop cutting-edge research in microbiology. Taking an integrative approach of scientific research, technology development and talent cultivation, the Institute aims to establish a leading status in life science and become an influential academic institute in the world.

The Institute has established “Key Laboratory of Molecular Microbiology and Technology of Ministry of Education”, “Key Laboratory of Microbial Functional Genomics of Tianjin Government”, “Engineering and Research Center for Microbial Functional Genomics and Detection Technology of Ministry of Education”, and “Research Center for Functional Genomics and Biochip of Tianjin municipal Government”

The main research fields include mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis, pathogenic microorganisms and immunology, and functional genomics of microorganisms. At present, the Institute has obtained research funds from National Science and Technology Major Project of the 13th Five-Year Plan, National Key R&D Program, National Natural Science Foundation Major Project and International Cooperation Project. A state-of-the art, world-class research team has been established. Researches in evolution and epidemic pattern of important pathogenic bacteria and their pathogenicity mechanisms, and genetic formation mechanism of biodiversity have reached advanced international level. So far, the Institute has published research articles in Nature, PNAS, Nature Communications, Nucleic Acids Research, Plos Pathogens, Metabolic Engineering, Genome Biology, etc.

Advanced genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics platforms have been established. The Institute is equipped with PacBio sequencing system, Illumina/ Solexa, Confocal microscope, BD FACSAria III, Q Exactive, trace Diane two-dimensional liquid chromatography system, Dual-color Infrared Laser Scanning Imaging Instrument, BiacoreX100, genome analyzer, genome optical mapping system, LCQ, GCMS, MALDI-TOF-TOF,EP480, EP850server, etc, and an ABSL-II laboratory will be ready soon.

The Institute is conducting an open selection for global top talents. The positions include Top Talents Positions (Nankai Chair Professor, Outstanding Professor and Talent Professor), Professor, Associate Professor, Lecturer and Post doctor.

In addition to the support provided by Nankai University, the Institute will provide temporary housing (2-3 years), offices and laboratories. Treatment and special demand can be negotiated for particularly outstanding talents.

TEDA Institute of Applied Physics

TEDA Institute of Applied Physics (formerly known as TEDA Applied Physics School) was established in 2003.The mission of TEDA-IAP is to become an internationally distinguished Center of Excellence in Applied Physics. We want to serve as an education and training basis for fundamental physics and as a center for technologically oriented research thus providing the human resources demanded by the high-tech industry of the Tianjin Economic-technology Development Area. The objective of TEDA-IAP is to play an exemplary role for the cooperation between academic institutions and industry.

The Institute has founded the Key Laboratory for Low-Intensity Nonlinear Photonics of Ministry of Education and Key Laboratory for Photonics Materials and Information Science Technology of Tianjin Government. At present the main research fields of TEDA-IAP are in physics of nonlinear materials, low-intensity nonlinear optics, microscopic quantum coherent optics, advanced fabrication techniques for photonic materials, spectroscopy, sensor techniques, quantum materials and devices, and nano-photonics. More than 7000 square meters were allocated by TEDA College for laboratories, offices, and seminar rooms and more than 40 million RMB have been invested in research equipment to promote the rise of TEDA-APS to an academic institution of international reputation.

To promote scientific research, the Institute is looking for outstanding young talents with professional doctorate or postdoctoral research experience from domestic and foreign famous universities and institutions.
