An official in charge of personnel affairs of the university said, ‘We will strictly verify recommendation letters, theses and other related information submitted by applicants to root out academic fraud.’ Which will put off a fair percentage of applicants.
Tsinghua required the applicants from Tsinghua to submit at least five theses, and overseas applicants to submit at least three recommendation letters.
This is all from bitter experience. In March 2006, Liu Hui, a professor was removed from his post for fabricating his academic achievements and work experience.
Currently, Tsinghua encourages professors and associate professors from both in and out of Tsinghua to compete for the academic posts available each year as part of its reforms of existing teachers’ employment system.
The recruitment has a closing date of October 10 and the finalists will be announced by the end of December.
