About Us

The SUSTech Mathematics Department was founded in June 2015. As of the 2022 - 2023 academic year, the Department consists of 42 research and teaching-line faculty members and 10 teaching-line faculty members, 267 graduate students, and 146 undergraduate majors. The Department is currently located in the College of Science Building, 1088 Xueyuan Avenue. Our administrative office is situated in Room M715 on the seventh floor.

The Department offers undergraduate degrees in the following areas:

Mathematics and Applied Mathematics

Financial Mathematics

Our graduate program (master and doctoral) covers nearly all fields of mathematical sciences. In addition, the Department also has joint Ph.D. programs with a few well-known overseas and Hong Kong/Macao universities providing excellent opportunities for prospective students.

Our faculty members’ research covers a broad range of areas including Mathematics (dynamical systems, algebra and combinatorics, algebraic number theory, PDEs, mathematical physics and differential geometry, etc.), Computational and Applied Mathematics (applied mathematics, numerical analysis, computational fluid dynamics, scientific computing, inverse problems, data science, etc.), Probability and Statistics, and Financial Mathematics.

The Department is well-funded for its research effort. Our faculty members have successfully obtained over 120 new external research grants (80 at the national level), with three major grants from NSFC. Furthermore, the department houses one of the Guangdong Provincial Major Laboratories.

The Department enjoys an outstanding faculty. Most of our senior faculty members have had tenured positions in leading Universities in the US, Canada, Australia, and European Countries. Most of our junior faculty have had multiple years of teaching and research experiences overseas, after receiving their degrees in some of the top universities in the world. Our faculty members have been invited to speak at major international conferences such as ICM, obtained distinguished honors such as membership to the Chinese Academy of Sciences and National Science Award, serve on the editorial boards of more than 30 international research journals, and published in prestigious journals such as Annals of Mathematics, Inventiones Mathematicae, JAMS, and Acta.

As the Department continues to grow, we are actively recruiting new faculty members, postdocs, visitors and graduate students. We welcome outstanding candidates to join us in our exciting journey to become a world class mathematical department.
