About Department of Mathematics
The SUSTech Mathematics Department was founded in June, 2015 and dates back to April, 2011, when SUSTech first opened its doors with the approval of the Chinese government and set up the Financial Mathematics Department, one of the six start-up departments. As of the 2018 - 2019 academic year, the Department consists of 39 faculty members, 72 graduate students, and 249 undergraduate majors. Now the Department is located in Block 3, Wisdom Valley (Hui Yuan), 1088, Xueyuan Boulevard. Our administrative office is located in Room 401 on the fourth floor.
The Department offers undergraduate programmes in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Financial Mathematics and master/PhD programmes in nearly all fields of mathematical sciences. We also have joint PhD programs with a number of well-known overseas/non-mainland universities.
Research interests of our faculty members cover a broad array of areas including Mathematics (dynamical systems, algebra and combinatorics, algebraic number theory, PDEs, mathematical physics and differential geometry, etc.), Computational and Applied Mathematics (numerical analysis, computational fluid dynamics, scientific computing, inverse problems, data science, etc.), Probability and Statistics, and Financial Mathematics.
A number of faculty members have made high-impact and fundamental contributions to their areas of research, including solving two over 100-year old problems (the Painleve Conjecture in dynamical systems and the Burnside problem in permutation group theory); they publish their results in prestigious research journals, such as Annals of Mathematics, and Inventiones Mathematicae. Two of the faculty members were invited to give 45-minute talks at the International Congress of Mathematicians, and were given National Young Investigator Award (US), and National Science Award (second prize, China), respectively.
Members of the Department are encouraged to engage actively in research, and performance in this area is an important criterion for advancement and promotion. Some members publish routinely the results of their research in leading international journals and are internationally known experts in their fields of specialisation. Some have been invited to serve as editor-in-chiefs, associate editors and in editorial boards for more than 30 international research journals.
In the last three years, our faculty members successfully obtained 35 research grants (25 at the national level), totaling over 15 million RMB. The success rates of NSFC grant application are 50%, 59% and 73% from 2016 to 2018, respectively.
Since 2015, a large number of young scholars, who have obtained their doctoral degrees or had work experience at universities in the US, Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore and UK, have joined the Department. These young scholars are experienced and knowledgeable, very active in research, and full of vigor and vitality. We are actively recruiting new faculty members, postdocs, visitors and graduate students. We welcome outstanding candidates to join us in our exciting journey to join the ranks of major mathematical departments in the world.
