Recruitment of High-Level Talents at the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences 

1. Introduction 

Established in October 1956, the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA), is a pioneer research institute on information and automation in China. Its mission is to conduct applied basic research and high technology research, development, and transfer. 

CASIA works in intelligence science and technology, with a special focus on brain-inspired and big data intelligence. Its innovative aims range from neural network theory and intelligent information processing to models of brain-inspired cognitive computation, neuromorphic chips, intelligent sensing and control, and autonomous intelligent systems, resulting in the development of intelligent software and hardware systems.  

The institute currently consists of 12 research departments, including the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition, State Key Laboratory of Management and Control for Complex Systems, National Engineering & Technology Research Center for ASIC (NECFAD), CAS Key Laboratory of Molecular Imaging, and Research Center for Brain-Inspired Intelligence. It is also involved in a number of jointly established laboratories and engineering centers in cooperation with international and social research institutions, including the CAS Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence, the CAS Shanghai Institute of Neuroscience, the Sino-European Laboratory of Informatics, Automation, and Applied Mathematics (LIAMA), and the Sino-Australian Laboratory of Brainnetome. CASIA has also invested in over 10 high-tech holding companies, including Hanvon and Sciample. 

As of the end of 2016, the institute employs 849 full-time staff members, with 650 post-graduate and PhD students. Our special-titled experts include two academicians of CAS, one academician of the Third World Academy of Sciences (TWAS), four chief scientists of the National Basic Research Development Program of China (973 Program), four panel members of the National Key Science and Technology Special Project, eight fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), twenty-two entrants in the CAS “Hundred Talents Program”, fourteen recipients of the “National Science Foundation of China Distinguished Young Scholars”, and five recipients of the “National Science Foundation of China Excellent Young Scholars”.
