About the Westlake Fellows Program:

Westlake University initiates the first-ever Westlake Fellows Program to attract emerging and outstanding scholars worldwide, foster innovative and collaborative research in science and technology and create a vibrant eco-system for international collaborations, free exchange of ideas and enduring bonds between institutions and nations. The Program offers two types of fellows for scholars at different career stages, including Westlake Fellows and Westlake Visiting Professors:

Westlake Fellowships seek to attract exceptional scientists of great promise in their early careers to Westlake, with the possibility of subsequent faculty appointments. They will be able to start their research independently or semi-independently, pursue cutting-edge research, and access Westlake's outstanding technical and scientific resources for three years as an alternative to post-doctoral programs. The appointment can be extended upon approval to three additional years for a total of six years. Meanwhile, they can benefit from the mentorship of their host faculty with tremendous flexibility and the full support from the host School and the University. 

Westlake Visiting Professorships, including Westlake Senior Fellows and Westlake Distinguished Fellows, aim to attract outstanding assistant/associate professors or brilliant full professors (or equivalent) on a short-term basis for collaborative research interactions within Westlake's interdisciplinary community.
