[-] Text [+]

Established in July, 2000, the International Centre for Bamboo and Rattan (ICBR) is a nation-level research institution affiliated with the State Forestry Administration (SFA) and fully funded by the state. ICBR was founded with the mission to build an international bamboo and rattan research platform to directly serve the International Network for Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR), the first intergovernmental organization headquartered in China, and promote the sustainable development of bamboo and rattan across the world.

 

ICBR boasts key laboratories co-established by the SFA and Beijing Municipal People’s Government, hosts the secretariat of ISO/TC 296 Bamboo and Rattan, and has 7 research institutes of fields ranging from new materials derived from bamboo and rattan, green economics, bamboo and rattan resources and environment, to bamboo and rattan genetics. The centre is committed to conducting international scientific and technological collaboration and exchanges, training high-caliber professionals, building a modern technological information network for bamboo and rattan, and providing consulting, demonstration, and assessment services for clients from home and abroad.

 

We now invite high-caliber research professionals from higher education institutions and research institutes overseas to join us at ICBR to further enhance our key laboratories and research institutes and promote the development of bamboo and rattan. In accordance with the SFA Management Practices for the Introduction of High-Caliber Scientific and Technological Professionals, we hereby post the job openings at ICBR for high-caliber research professionals as follows:
