China is interested not only in the macroworld, it is also keen on the microworld. Scientists with an advanced degree in physics who have accepted positions at south China universities are helping track and explain how neutrinos morph into different types, or generations, as they fly through space at nearly the speed of light. These physicists have joined an international team of scientists who are studying nuclear reactor–produced neutrinos in the southern Chinese seaside resort of Daya Bay. Collaboration on these experiments involves universities and physicists stretching across four continents, says Kam-Biu Luk, a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, and a distinguished visiting scholar at the University of Hong Kong. Luk, who heads the international participation in the project, says this exploration of the long-shrouded world of neutrinos is one of the most outstanding experiments in particle physics ever conducted by joint groups of universities based in China and the United States. Physicists at the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen University, Dongguan University of Technology, and Sun Yat-sen University have joined counterparts at Yale, Princeton, and other laboratories in this expanding experiment. Chinese scientists involved in these neutrino observations, along with the international team headed by Luk, were awarded the prestigious Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics in 2016, for outlining how neutrinos transform as they speed through the cosmos. They won, according to the prize citation, for “revealing a new frontier beyond, and possibly far beyond, the standard model of particle physics.” Due to the rapidly growing neutrino physics programs in China, Jiajie Ling, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois who is now a professor in physics at Sun Yat-sen University, opted to take a position there with start-up funding support from the Thousand Talents Program for Distinguished Young Scholars. He is helping to guide a new series of experiments at Daya Bay: the search for the hypothesized “sterile neutrino.” This proposed fourth type of neutrino could be a form of the elusive dark matter that scientists have been searching for since the last century, says Ling.
I love problem driven research. I like to spend a considerable amount of time working on problems in Supply Chains Management。
At the frontier of human genome editing
Because the United States has the most advanced technology and science in the world. I would like to persue a PhD degree in the United States but not in any other country.

In another region of south China, at the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, Jing Yang has been conducting research with colleagues at Pennsylvania State University on structural changes in the brain that occur when students begin studying a second language. Yang, formerly a postdoctoral fellow at Penn State, says she joined Guangdong University of Foreign Studies because the school “is well known for cultivating international talent.” She says she aims to help transform the university’s language center into “a leading research center for linguistics and applied linguistics,” and adds that the government is providing large-scale grant support to reach that goal. China’s economic ascent and the increasingly attractive recruitment packages offered by its universities are becoming extremely appealing to Chinese scholars who have studied in the West, Yang says, and are beginning to help reverse a decades-long brain drain, during which scholars left the country to pursue their careers elsewhere. While many Chinese scientists still opt to stay in Europe or the United States after obtaining an advanced degree there, Yang observes that “some scholars, like me, chose to go home to work for a brighter future for ourselves and also for our country.” These scholars, she adds, are helping create clusters of excellent scientific research across China. “The rise of China definitely is not limited to the economy,” Yang explains. “We hope our country can excel in science, culture, and technology too. It is a double win for China and the world.”
I’ve got my Bachelor degree at Peking University and Master degree at Tsinghua University. So, it’s quite reasonable for me to peruse my Ph.D. degree in the United States.You know, the United States has the most advanced techno logy and science in the world.
