The Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) is located in the port city of Dalian, China. In the past half century, research at DICP has closely reflected the economic and scientific needs of China. The Institute has built up an impressive portfolio of achievements, principally in the fields of catalysis, chemical engineering, chemical lasers, chemical dynamics, organic synthesis, and chromatography for modern analytic chemistry and biotechnology. These achievements have greatly contributed to the China’s economic and technological development.
Research at DICP is now focused on energy-related topics, and the Institute’s current development strategy is summarized as follows: “DICP focuses on sustainable energy research and coordinates the development of environment optimization, biotechnology and advanced material in a multidisciplinary atmosphere by strengthening technological integration and innovation. DICP aims to play an indispensable roles in the national economy and security, and become a leading research institute in the world.”
Since its founding, DICP has produced numerous outstanding scientists and high-quality engineers who have developed both strong domestic and international reputations. A total of 26 DICP scientists have been elected to the members of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the members of Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), four to the members of World Academy of Sciences, and one to the member of Academia European. DICP has over 1,900 employees, 1,164 graduate students as of October 2022.
Through the efforts of the scientists, staff, and students, scientific research and competitive capacities at DICP continue to grow, the strategic plan continues to improve, collaborations continue to expand, and dedicated research programs continue to influence their fields. The quality of the basic research at DICP is reflected in the number of publications in high-level journals and patents and valuable technologies for industry that are continually developed at the Institute. At the same time, DICP’s innovative research for national security has received numerous commendations. By 2021, DICP have received 94 national awards for science and technology (S&T).
Introduction of DICP Postdoctoral Research Center
Established in 1985, DICP was one of the first postdoctoral research centers in China. It houses two national outstanding postdoctoral research centers respectively in chemistry, and chemical engineering and technology. At present, there are more than 340 postdoctoral researchers (including more than 20 international ones. DICP attaches great importance to the cultivation of post-doctoral talents, and many of its postdoctoral researchers have published papers in high-quality journals, such as Science, and Angew. Chem, and JACS.
Salary System for Foreign Postdoctoral Researchers
Living Facilities for Foreign Postdoctoral Researchers
DICP is located in the beautiful coastal city of Dalian, surrounded by mountains and sea, and close to Xinghai Square, the largest square in Asia. The excellent geographical location enables easy access to transportation, shopping, entertainment, and other living facilities for foreign postdoctoral researchers.
In order to promote internationalization, the Dalian Institute of Chemical Engineering has implemented a special project. Bilingual signs are available at office buildings, laboratories, dormitories, restaurants, and other areas in each park to facilitate use by foreigners.
DICP also provides fully equipped apartments for foreign postdoctoral researchers. The room has a kitchen, and a separate, fully furnished bedroom.
