Department of Chemistry

The Chemistry Department at Nanjing Agricultural University belongs to College of Sciences and was found in 1999 (named as Applied Chemistry Department previously). Teachers divide into basic courses teaching group and professional courses teaching group. There are totally 37 full-time teachers here, including 7 professors, 17 associate professors, 6 doctoral supervisors and 13 master’s supervisors. Chemistry Department owns a high-quality teaching team. In detail, 29 teachers acquire their doctoral degree which occupies 79 percent of teachers; 5 teachers are in listed and cultured as “Scientific leaders or backbones of young and middle ages” of Jiangsu province; 1 teacher was awarded as “Zhongshan academic young researcher”; and altogether 4 times for teachers of Chemistry Dept. won the award of “NJAU’s high quality teaching model”.

The Chemistry Department now has 1 undergraduate major (Applied Chemistry) which started to enroll students since 2003, from 30 students of first year and 60 students of second year to around 240 students till now. The Chemistry Department also has a two-grade doctor section (Natural Product Chemistry), a one-grade master section (Chemistry) and master section of Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. The main research areas include: drug molecular design and synthesis, pollution control chemistry, natural product chemistry and pharmaceutical & environmental analytical chemistry.

Chemistry Department is financially supported by Jiangsu Green Pesticide Development and Application National & Local Joint Engineering Research Center, Jiangsu Pesticide Science Key Laboratory, Nanjing Agricultural University’s Key Discipline Construction Platform and other levels of platforms. Now the Chemistry Department has set up natural product develop platform, organic synthesis platform, chemical analysis & detection platform and bioactivity detection platform. Buildings for scientific research cover an area of more than 3000 square meters. Equipments and devices for relevant research now value a total of more than 1500 million yuan. These all give powerful guarantee for Chemistry Dept. to efficiently cultivate high-quality applied chemistry talents and carry out academic research.

Six planed textbooks have been published during “twelfth five year plan”. Several National Science Foundation of China (NSFC) projects have been finished or undertook, such as, “twelfth five year plan” National High Technology Research and Development Program (863 Program), “twelfth five year plan” National Science-technology Support Project, Public Welfare Industry (Agriculture) Special Research Project, Jiangsu Science-technology Support Project, Jiangsu Science-technology Plan Project, Jiangsu Natural Science Foundation, Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities et al, altogether more than 30 projects and totally 1500 millions have allotted. Teachers of Chemistry Dept. have published more than 110 scientific papers during 2011-2015, and 6 Nation Invention Patents have been granted.

Department of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics in Nanjing Agricultural University, which is affiliated to the College of Science, offers undergraduate programs including Information and Computational Sciences since 2002, Statistics since 2016 and graduate programs including Applied Mathematics since 2004. Currently there are 270 students enrolled and about 100% of our graduated students get employed every year.

The Department of Mathematics has a well-organized group of faculty members with hardworking attitude, high professional level and research abilities. There are 27 full-time teachers in the department, including 2 professors and 17 associate professors, 2 Ph.D. supervisor and 8 master’s supervisors. There are also 13 teachers with Ph.D. degree, which count for 48% of the total members, and 4 teachers currently enrolled in the Ph.D. program. Some of them are entitled to be the Scientific and Technology Leading Researchers of “333 higher level Talent Training Project” in Jiangsu province, “133 Outstanding and Leading Young Researchers in Nanjing Agricultural University” and “Zhongshan Early-career Researchers in Nanjing Agricultural University”.

The Department of Mathematics offers diverse public mathematics courses such as calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, etc., for all undergraduate students in our university. Besides, professional courses are also provided for undergraduate students in the information and computational science program, statistics and graduate students. Many teachers focus on the research of the education reform and carry out many related projects. They make great efforts on the development of textbooks and courses. Two textbooks made by them are chosen to be “the elaborated textbooks” of Jiangsu province. Many young teachers actively took part in teaching contests and some got the first prize.

The program of Applied Mathematics was first built in 2004 as a second level program and became a first level program in 2011. The research areas range from the traditional areas of pure mathematics such as Hopf algebras and quantum groups, differential equations and numerical computation, to applied mathematics such as probabilitystatistics and its application, computational bioinformatics and so on.

Since the last five years, many teachers in our department have published a series of high level research papers. More than 100 papers have been indexed by SCI and have a remarkable influence. Currently, there are 21 research projects carried out in total: 8 National Natural Science Foundation projects, 2 research projects of Ministry of Education, 4 Jiangsu Provincial Natural Science Foundation projects and 7 Fundamental Research Funds for the Central University.

The Department of Mathematics encourages international communication and cooperation. We have created research connections with many universities and institutions in America, Canada, Hungary and so on.

In recent years, many outstanding Ph.D. graduates joined in our department and made great contribution on the development in both teaching and research. During the period of the “13th five-year-plan”, Nanjing Agricultural University and the College of Science will make more effort on the development of our department. We believe that there will be more excellent researchers joining our group and create a better future together.

Departmrnt of Physics

       There are thirteen high-quality teachers in the Physics Department, including two professors and four associate professors. The two professors are also Ph.D. student supervisors. Among all the teachers, six have doctoral degree (46%). One teacher has been awarded as “Zhongshan academic young researcher”.

The Physics Department has a physics lab and an isotope lab. It takes responsibility of teaching Physics I, Physics II, Digital Circuit, Physics Lab I and Physics Lab II for all the university students, which sums up to 4000 classes per year.

       The physics department is qualified to award the doctor degree and master degree for biophysics as a second-grade section. Our main research areas include: protein structure and function, protein crystallography, biological electromagnetic effect, Light and biological function, nanomaterial.
