ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Designed to inspire the next generation of global leaders, the Schwarzman Scholars program is the most significant of its kind since the Rhodes Trust was founded in 1902. With a $600 million endowment, it will also be the single largest philanthropic effort ever undertaken in China by largely international donors.
The 100-200 scholars chosen annually for this highly selective program will work towards a one-year Master’s Degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing—one of China’s most prestigious universities. As individuals who want to have a positive impact on the world, Schwarzman Scholars are selected based on their academic credentials, extracurricular interests, and leadership potential.
Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University is recruiting for five visiting faculty positions:
Disney Faculty Chair in Global Media; Citi Chair in International Business; Bank of America Merrill Lynch Visiting Chair in International Finance; Johnson & Johnson Faculty Chair in Leadership; and Volkswagen Faculty Chair in Sustainability.
Each full-time position will be given to one individual with a term of one semester to two years and competitive pay, including residence in a faculty apartment at Schwarzman College at Tsinghua University and access to research funds.

We are seeking expert scholars in contemporary global issues including global media and communications, business and economics, international finance, sustainability including energy policy, and leadership. We are seeking excellent teachers and scholars with an interdisciplinary focus who are able to take a leave of absence from their current academic positions for up to two years.
