There are 7 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering, 1 academician of the Russian Academy of Engineering, 1 academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, and 4 members of the Academic Evaluation Committee of the State Council. There are 11 members of Discipline Teaching Instruction Committee of the Ministry of Education, 10 professionals selected by the “10,000 Talent Plan” as the leading talent for the first “Hundred, Thousand and Ten Thousand Project”, 2 professionals selected by “10,000 Talent Plan” of The Organizing Department of CCCPC for Young Top Talent Cultivation Program, and 12 scholars supported by the National Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, etc. Also, 64 CNU teachers have been recipients of the Zeng Xianzi Teaching Award and the Henry Fok Young Teacher Teaching and Research Award.

  CNU has excellent teaching and research environment and CNU library which stores 1,291,800 books represents one of the national key libraries for documentary reference, which provide sufficient teaching and research conditions for teachers and students.

  In the future, CNU aims for creative and progressive strides towards being a special and excellent normal university.

About School of Mathematical Sciences 

  Mathematics at Capital Normal University is one of the earliest established disciplines. In September 2017, the national “Double First-class” construction list was announced, and Capital Normal University entered the list, and Mathematics entered the list of world-class construction disciplines. Among the 14 universities in the country that have entered the list of first-class disciplines in mathematics, CNU is the only university sponsored by local government.

  There are 92 teachers in School of Mathematical Sciences, including 41 professors, 39 associate professors and 12 lecturers. They have already formed a highly educated and rigorous research team  with 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 1 leading talent in the “10,000 Plan”, 6 professors supported by Chang Jiang Scholars Program, 7 scholars supported by the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars, 1 professor listed in The Recruitment Program of Global Experts, 1 professor listed in Young Overseas High-level Talents Recruitment Plan, 5 professionals selected by national “Hundred, Thousand and Ten Thousand Project”, 1 member of the discipline review group of the Statistics Academic Degree Commission of the State Council, and 1 member of Statistics Teaching Instruction Committee of the Ministry of Education, etc.

In recent years, scholars in School of Mathematical Sciences have hosted a number of national-level key programs and major research projects. Besides, important achievements with international influence have obtained. Three papers have been consecutively published on Acta Mathematica and Annals of Mathematics.; Two scholars were the invited speakers of the International Congress of Mathematicians; 1 scholar received second class of National Natural Science Awards.; and 1 scholar won the second class of the National Science and Technology Progress Awards. Since 2008, researchers in School of Mathematical Sciences successively received 7 key programs and major research projects which are supported Ministry of Education of China, Ministry of Science and Technology and NSFC. Especially, in 2018, 1 Science Fund for Creative Research Groups was newly approved by NSFC, 1 scholar supported by the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars, and 1 project was funded by NSFC for Major Research Instrument Development.

About Academy for Multidisciplinary Studies (AMS)

  The development of frontier science and the accomplishment of major scientific and technological achievements are increasingly dependent on the intersection and integration of multiple fields. In order to accelerate the construction of first-class disciplines and promote the comprehensive, coordinated and sustainable development of basic subjects’ research, Capital Normal University established Academy for Multidisciplinary Studies (AMS) in 2018. Focusing on building a world-class mathematics discipline group, AMS aim to construct a special talent zone and special subjects zone which integrates talents cultivation, scientific research, and social services.

  Upholding the principle of “building a first-class cross-disciplinary research platform, cultivating first-class cross-disciplinary researchers, and producing first-class cross-disciplinary achievements”, AMS strives to achieve major original theoretical innovations in the fields of mathematics and statistics under the diversified innovation systems and mechanisms. Facing the major need of Beijing and even our country, AMS will build an innovative platform with great international influence in the field of interdisciplinary research such as artificial intelligence, big data, etc. Also, AMS will produce a number of advanced original theoretical achievements, and achieve the subversive key technologies in related industries, then provide guidance and demonstration for the school's overall discipline construction.

   As the hub of university’s discipline construction, the experimental field of innovative talents cultivation, and the incubator of academic leader and innovation team, AMS shoulders the responsibility of reserving high-level teachers for CNU. Through the dual-employment, full-time employment and part-time work for high-caliber talent, AMS will combine the “3+3” tenure-track to attract outstanding young and middle-aged scientists to work at CNU. AMS will establish a team of 30-40 people as soon as possible in accordance with world-class discipline construction standards, and gradually expand the scale to 60-80 people. We are looking forward to the outstanding talents who are to contribute to China and interested in science to join us.
