Scientific Research Talents Wanted in CPJRC
China-Pakistan Joint Research Center on Earth Sciences (aka CPJRC) is a non-profit scientific research institution and also an independent legal entity jointly led by Chinese Academy of Sciences (aka CAS) and Higher Education Commission Pakistan (aka HEC), headquartered on the campus of Quaid-I Azam University in Islamabad, Pakistan, covering an area of 300 acres and a first phase of construction area of 15000m2.
CPJCR mainly focuses on the key science and technology challenges encountered in the construction of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (aka CPEC), and carries out all-element, full-chain, and integrated research, covering such four major research fields as deep sphere interaction from ocean subduction to continental collision, climate change and environmental effects, natural disasters and risk management, and resources environment and green development. As a national platform of China-Pakistan science and education cooperation, CPJRC aims to be built as an open international science and technology center of excellence and an international science and technology institution with global influence especially in South Asia, Central Asia, West Asia and North Africa.
The third research field “Natural disasters and risk management” focuses on such scientific and technological issues along CPEC as severe earthquake disasters, mountain disasters, meteorological disasters, marine disasters, and desertification control. Taking disaster-inducing environment, dynamic process, disaster effect and prevention and control technology as the cores of research, this research field centers on the systematic understanding of disaster-induced mechanism with the influence of the coupling action of the earth’s internal and external dynamics, leading the frontier research of major disasters under complex environmental conditions. In addition, this field is also committed to the development of key technologies for major disaster risk simulation and prediction, monitoring and early warning, comprehensive prevention and control, and emergency disaster reduction, and committed to the construction of disaster risk management technology system, so as to the promote the cooperation of China-Pakistan science and technology and the construction of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
Now, this field is proposed to recruit 1-2 scientific research talents. If you are interested in the disaster research along the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, we are looking forward to your joining.
