The Alibaba Post-doctoral Research Program is a talent cultivation project based on cooperation between Alibaba Group and universities. In recent years, this program has supported collaborative research relationships between Alibaba and close to 100 top scientists from leading colleges and universities around the world. Now, we are offering the program’s research projects to all talented, doctoral-level individuals who are within six years of graduating with their Ph.D. We welcome all doctoral-level talent fitting these requirements to apply.
The Alibaba Research Internship program provides internships for current undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students from top universities worldwide. Its goal is to identify, cultivate, and retain high-quality and innovative talents in the field of computer science research to help Alibaba Group meet their goal of serving 2 billion people via their diverse products and service offerings in industries such as e-commerce, finance, logistics, entertainment, health, and cloud computing. Since its inception, the program has attracted hundreds of students from esteemed academic institutions such as MIT, Stanford University, the University of California at Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Tsinghua University, and Peking University.
- 2018/09/13Wang Bufang and Liu Dawei were the first two Alibaba postdoctoral researchers to join the Alibaba Postdoctoral Research Program in 2009. Their colleague, Wang Peng, joined as part of the second batch of incoming talents in 2011, working as a researcher on Alibaba’s Taobao platform. The three colleagues all felt that Alibaba attaches great importance to performing cutting-edge Information Age research, and demonstrates that they are continuously willing to invest in creating beneficial and innovative technology.
- 2018/09/13The Alibaba Postdoctoral Research Program’s international research centers are an important platform for finding and cultivating elite international computer science talents for Alibaba Group. The program currently has postdoctoral research centers in Beijing and Hangzhou. In addition, a joint plan of collaboration has been established between Alibaba and several top universities, including the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and Singapore Nanyang Technological University. The Alibaba Postdoctoral Research Program’s technical team is currently home to hundreds of doctoral-level computer science research talents. Over the next three years, we hope our addition of new international research centers will bring in a further 200 post-doctoral researchers.
