Building on the existing strengths of both, ZJE aims to foster collaborations in teaching and research, explore interdisciplinary research, and be committed to frontier basic and applied research in life sciences. As of 30th December 2022, ZJE has two dual degree undergraduate programmes and 7 postgraduate programmes. There are 488 undergraduates and 185 Postgraduate students.ZJE Research Building is about 10,000 square meters. An accumulated investment of more than RMB 40 million has been put into teaching laboratory infrastructure, core facility and laboratory animal facility construction, which gives a strong support for research. The core facility is composed of FACS core, imaging core, histology core, biochemistry core and bioinformatics core. Each core is guided by PIs and managed and maintained by skillful technicians. The animal facility is 1492 square meters that can house up to 8000 cages of mice.Haining, where ZJE is located, is at the heartland of Yangtze River Delta Economic Zone, 100 km to the west of Shanghai and 60 km to the east of Hangzhou (30 mins by inter-city train). With over 3,000 years of history, Haining is rich with culture heritage, and bounds in historic figures and natural beauties. The Haining Tide is famous throughout the world. Research DirectionsZJE has established research centers with focused 4 research directions (Cellular Biology, Stem Cell Biology, System Biology, Cancer Biology, Immunology and Infections) to facilitate undergraduate research training and graduate teaching, and encourage scientific discussion, collaboration, seminars within each research center. Individuals whose research interest lies in the above fields are welcome to apply. Individuals with experience of antimicrobial drug resistance and cell biology (single-cell RNA sequencing genomics, epigenomics, spatial omics, proteomics and imaging to achieve multimodal measurements of individual cellular phenotypes and genotype) are especially welcome.

Call for Papers: Special Issue on the Safety of Hydrogen Energy Equipment
As the globe highly values hydrogen energy in decarbonization and in meeting the zero-emission objective, the industry is growing fast, and the market is enlarging. Meanwhile, scientists, engineers, and producers must recognize the crucial challenges in hydrogen energy use, like hydrogen safety. In recent years, the explosion caused by hydrogen leakage taking place in countries like South Korea, the U.S., The Kingdom of Norway, and China indicates that hydrogen equipment safety is still a critical and common challenge lying ahead. Therefore, digging deeper into hydrogen equipment innovation and safety research is urgent and necessary. Offering an open and professional communication platform, the special issue on the Safety of Hydrogen Energy Equipment aims to promote the discussion and communication of the latest and forefront ideas, technological innovation, and forecasts in themes and areas related to hydrogen equipment and safety. It expects articles focusing on the following six themes.- Hydrogen Leakage and Fire Explosion: hydrogen diffusion in confined space; liquid hydrogen leakage and diffusion; hydrogen temperature rise during the fast-filling process; hydrogen self-ignition; hydrogen jet fire; hydrogen deflagration and detonation; fire resistance of hydrogen energy equipment, et al- Risk Assessment of Hydrogen Energy Equipment: hydrogen leak probability, ignition probability, invalidation consequence, damage threshold, risk evaluation methodology of hydrogen energy equipment, et al- Hydrogen Compatibility of Material: hydrogen damage mechanism of materials (metal and nonmetal); hydrogen compatibility testing and evaluation techniques of material; hydrogen compatibility database of material; damage prevention and control technology of hydrogen material; materials of low-cost hydrogen embrittlement, et al- Hydrogen Energy Equipment Design and Manufacture: whole life-cycle failure mode of hydrogen energy equipment; prediction method of damage mechanism and life expectancy; design and manufacturing technology based on failure mode, et al- Hydrogen Energy Equipment Testing and Evaluation: hydrogen damage detection-monitoring and diagnosis-evaluation technology; pressure measurement of hydrogen; leak detection of hydrogen; hydrogen sensor; super-compaction release technology; flame arrester, et al- Standards of Hydrogen Energy Equipment: domestic and foreign standardization of hydrogen energy equipment, et al Submission deadline: March 30, 2023 Learn more
