For the first time, a dozen universities based in Shanghai have decided to launch a joint recruitment drive for professors in the United States, reports thepaper.cn.

Fudan University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai University and other 9 post-secondary institutions in the city are running the recruitment drive from October 21 to 23. The 12-university delegation has been recruiting at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University.

Fudan University has reportedly received nearly a hundred resumes since the recruitment drive began.

Zhao Luwei, the deputy dean of the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences at Fudan University is in the U.S. on behalf of his institution.

"Chinese students studying overseas have a strong will to return to China for development," said Zhao.

"We are not limited to recruiting only Chinese students, but also foreign experts with higher academic levels who fall within our recruitment requirements," said Lu Qi, the deputy director of Human Resources at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. "When young people choose their future career development, the first consideration is not necessarily money, but how their career might develop," added Lu Qi.
