The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST, https://hkust.edu.hk/) has positioned itself as an international university which emphasizes on both teaching and research. Over the years, HKUST has been making strides progressively in education, research, knowledge transfer, and community services. Leveraging on the academic leadership in higher education and impending development of China's innovation-driven Greater Bay Area (GBA), HKUST welcomes the opportunity to establish a new campus in Guangzhou (GZ, https://hkust-gz.edu.cn/ ), the Mainland China. The new campus will synergize with and maintain the same academic standard as that of its Clear Water Bay (CWB) counterpart. The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou) (HKUST(GZ)) will nurture talent and facilitate collaboration amongst Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area (GBA) and beyond on education, research and commercialization, while strengthening knowledge transfer to bridge Hong Kong’s gap in high-tech manufacturing.
Thrust of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS, https://hkust-gz.edu.cn/academics/four-hubs/function-hub/earth-ocean-atmospheric-sciences/faculty ) is a Department of HKUST (GZ). The aim of the EOAS is to become a leading educational and research entity in the areas of earth surface process, oceanography, atmospheric science, which focuses on interdisciplinary studies of ocean-atmosphere-land interaction in the earth system for the regional sustainable environment and climate change. It covers multidisciplinary study of physical, biogeochemical, watershed hydrological and earth surface sciences in the coupled system of land-sea, sea-ocean and atmosphere-ocean. Appointees are expected to engage in the cutting-edge and innovative scientific research; undertake national-level scientific research projects; and lead the development of disciplines.
