Take the road to Ningbo – Li Dak Sum Chair Professorships in
Materials Technology (x3) 

Some of the most transformative materials that we use, such as paper and porcelain, were invented in China. The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) is riding the crest of the latest wave of innovative materials and new technologies.

With generous support from Ningbo New Materials City and the Li Dak Sum
Foundation, we now seek visionary research leaders to drive forward our New Materials Institute (NMI) - a major investment dedicated to innovation and industrialisation of polymer composites, granular materials and new energy materials. Materials technology features heavily within the Ningbo Government’s five-year plan. 

With 6 million GBP pledged to UNNC over the next five years, we are also able to offer valuable PhD Scholarships to up-and-coming international talent. Our state-of-the-art laboratories for analysis, characterisation and processing are complemented by the nearby NMI incubator facility in Ningbo’s HiTech Zone. We are superbly placed to deliver large and ambitious projects, with existing industrial partnerships in place with domestic and international aerospace, land transport and marine equipment companies.

The Li Dak Sum Chair Professors will develop our research agenda, grow our project portfolio and link with our recently announced School of Aerospace. We are also extending UNNC’s international and regional partnerships, including with our UK and Malaysia campuses.

UNNC is the leading sino-foreign collaborative University, based on a beautiful green campus within the prosperous Ningbo district of Yinzhou. The University is a highly international English-speaking environment with more than 7,000 students and 700 staff from all over the world.

Help to shape  all our futures.
