In the comprehensive assessment of the postdoctoral research stations and workstations by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the National Postdoctoral Management Committee in 2020, 8 postdoctoral research Stations, including the Postdoctoral Research Station in Mathematics of School of Mathematics, Shandong University, was determined to be excellent.
The School of Mathematics is home to three postdoctoral research stations in mathematics, system science and statistics. The Postdoctoral Research Station in Mathematics was approved to be established in February 1995 (RZF  No. 15), which is one of the first postdoctoral research stations established in Shandong University. The comprehensive assessment of postdoctoral work is organized once every five years, which is aimed at strengthening the construction of postdoctoral research stations and workstations and further promoting the healthy development of postdoctoral work. The scope of assessment is research stations established before 2017.
In recent years, the research team incubation program, program for young scholars and the international cooperation improvement program have been implemented, and the faculty features “large scale, scale, optimized structure, gathering of talents and remarkable achievements”. The rapid development of the postdoctoral work has effectively played an important role in the postdoctoral system to select and train outstanding young research talents, promote the flow of talents and produce high-level research results.
Since Shandong University launched the special postdoctoral funding program in 2018, the quality of postdoctoral fellows has been further improved, the age structure has been significantly optimized, and the output of research results has been further increased. In 2020, the School of Mathematics revised and improvedMeasures for the Management of Postdoctoral Fellows Under Special or Key Support and Outstanding Postdoctoral Fellows Overseas in the School of Mathematics, Shandong University (Revision)(SYZ  No. 1) to ensure the standardized operation of postdoctoral work mechanism. The School of Mathematics will take this assessment as an opportunity to give full play to its disciplinary advantages, systematically summarize the postdoctoral work experience since the establishment of the station, and promote the overall work in the postdoctoral research station in all aspects. It will make a plan for postdoctoral work in the “14th Five-Year Plan”, continue to optimize the construction of postdoctoral work platform, manage the recruitment of postdoctoral fellows in a strict manner, standardize salary and incentive mechanisms, improve the service level of postdoctoral work, promote the scientific development of postdoctoral work, bring together and cultivate more high-quality, interdisciplinary and innovative young talents, so that postdoctoral fellows will play a bigger role in the construction of top disciplines.
