I. About Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT)

Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) was founded in 1920. Known as the “Cradle of Engineers”, it was designated as one of the first batch of six national key universities in 1954 and was included into the first group of nine universities of “985 Project” in 1999. In 2017, HIT was rated as one of the Category A universities in “Double First-Class” Initiative. In 2022, HIT’s eight disciplines were included in the updated “First Class Discipline” list. In the US News World University Rankings 2023 for Engineering, HIT was ranked 5th in the world.


In order to promote Sino-Russian educational exchange and cooperation, deepen integration of respective high-quality resources, and establish a solid joint talent training and high-level innovation and research base between the two countries, HIT and St Petersburg University (SPbU) have started the development of China-Russia Joint Campus since April 2019. The Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Campus was solemnly held on July 7th 2020. Two years later in March 2022, it entered into the stage of content construction and spirit cultivation, with three cooperative programs, including majors of mathematics and applied mathematics, applied physics, and chemistry, successfully approved by MOE. In September 2022, the first batch of students enrolled in the China-Russia Joint Campus.

HIT has been continuously exploring the “1+N” approaches of Chinese-foreign cooperative education. For example, it has signed agreements to send excellent undergraduates overseas for master’s degrees, and set up bachelor, master, and doctor level joint training programs, with a group of high-level universities in Russia, including Bauman Moscow State Technical University, National Research University Moscow Power Engineering Campus, and Moscow Aviation University. In order to further strengthen internationalized teaching force, promote the development of the China-Russia Joint Campus, and accelerate the construction of high-level teaching and research system conforming with “Chinese-Style & World-Class” university overall planning and talent cultivation objectives, Harbin Institute of Technology hereby releases the global recruitment program of foreign assistant professors / excellent postdoctoral researchers, aiming to bring together rich intellectual resources of first-class faculty, first-class disciplines, and first-class talents to produce world-leading research.
