Professor Jinfa Cai from the Department of Mathematical Sciences has been named a Changjiang (Yangtze River) Scholar by the Ministry of Education in China. The prestigious award is the highest award issued to an individual in higher education by the country's Ministry of Education.
Changjiang Scholars are in the top tier of the country's "High-level Creative Talents Plan" aimed to recruit talented academics, establishing research programs in their respective academic disciplines in order to promote the development of those disciplines to the highest international level. The selection of Changjiang Scholars is based on very stringent criteria, such as academic accomplishment, publications, grants, international leadership and recognitions. Since the implementation of the plan, the country has assembled a large number of scholars with such academic talent. Currently, the number of Changjiang Scholars in a university has become an important indicator of the academic strength in the university.
Besides Chinese scholars, a limited number of international recipients are also chosen every year. Most scholars appointed in the past were in the fields of Medicine, Mathematics, Science and Engineering, and few were in the humanities and education. This year, Dr. Cai is the only person selected in Mathematics Education.
We congratulate Dr. Cai on this prestigious award!
