In the 2022 Hong Kong Scholars Program, 50 high-quality postdoctoral fellows under the age of 35 were selected from leading universities in Mainland China. PolyU has admitted 19 of them, accounting for the largest share of recruitment among the participating Hong Kong universities in the program.


Since the first round of this program in 2011, PolyU has recruited the most fellows for the twelfth consecutive year.


This program is jointly launched by the Society of Hong Kong Scholars and the China National Postdoctoral Council under the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security. It aims at effectively pooling the talent and research resources of Hong Kong and the Mainland to train outstanding postdoctoral fellows, particularly in experimental science and engineering disciplines.


19 academics of PolyU will serve as supervisors to nurture the solicited fellows for two years to carry out high-level research work. The research projects cover various areas: mathematics, mechanical engineering, physics, materials science and engineering, electrical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, medical technology, surveying and mapping science and technology, chemical technology, and management science application.
