Shanghai is openly recruiting 5,157 Post Doctors, with a maximum annual salary off 700,000 yuan (US$ 103,000) and a living subsidy. The median salary is 300,000 Yuan (US $44,000). Shanghai is not alone. Many Chinese cities are in the competition for the talents that have Doctors and Post Doctors status.
The U.S., U.K, and Germany are the top three countries that are Shanghai’s recruiting targets. This caused people to wonder whether this recruiting effort is a continuation of the infamous “Thousand Talents” program. The “Thousand Talents” program included some cases of participants stealing Western technology and giving it to China.
