Northeast Institute of Geography and Agriculture Ecology, CAS is the unique comprehensive research institution of geography and agronomy established by Chinese Academy of Science. The new garden locates at university town of Changchun City, Jilin Province. The area of the new garden is 35000 m2. And there is an educational building whose area is 4600m2. The researching conditions, teaching equipments and living facilities have all reached the national first-class level. The institute’s programs are always focus on the vital national needs and the development strategy needs of the northeast area. Using the fundamental theory of many subjects, such as geography, agronomy, environmental science, soil science, biology, subjects, the institute emphatically to carry out the following researches: wetland science, environmental science, agricultural ecology, remote sensing and geographical information system, microwave electronic technology, economic geography.
In the institute’s system, there are Wetland Ecology and Environment Research Centre (including Lab of Ecological Wetland Process, Biogeochemical Lab, Lab of Environmental Analysis and Evaluation, Sanjiang Mire Wetland Experimental Station); Regional Agricultural Research Centre (Black Soil Ecology Lab, Crop Physiology Ecology Lab, Hailun Agricultural Ecology Experimental Station, Daan Alkaline Ecology Experiment Station); Research Centre of Geography Remote Sensing Information; Research Centre of Development of Northeast Area. At the same time, the Wetland Research Centre of Chinese Academy of Science is in our institute. Currently there are ninety-eight advanced innovation researchers and fifty-six supervisors on the post, including thirty-eight doctor supervisors, twenty-five master supervisors. And most of these supervisors are under 45 years old and with doctor degree. The institute runs four journals which are collected in Chinese Science Citation Database, they are: Scientia Geographica Sinica, Chinese Geographical Science, Agricultural System Science and Comprehensive Research, Wetland Science.
Besides ordinary fellowship, the assistant allowance and performance allowance are also granted according to undertaking research task, innovative achievements and publication of academic papers.
Our institute is one of the first batch units who have the right of confer master degree. Currently, there are one postdoctoral research station of Environmental Science and Engineering; three doctor degree awarding units of Environmental Science, Cartography and Geographical Information System and Ecology Science; five master degree awarding units of Environmental Science, Natural Geography, Human Geography, Cartography and Geographical Information System, Ecology Science. There are twenty postdoctoral researchers, one hundred and eighty postgraduate students. Every year, we enroll thirty doctoral students and twenty-five master degree students.
