Open positions @ ShanghaiTech University

(Updated June 22nd, 2017)


1. Postdoctoral researcher (two positions available)

We are searching for postdoctoral researchers who will be involved in synthesis and assembly of nanomaterials. Research conducted within the group will be more focused on fundamental science, such as developing methods for controlling nanoparticle morphology and understanding self-assembly behavior of nanomaterial at an interface. However, we will also actively pursue practical application of the produced nanostructures, particularly in the field of energy storage and biosensing, mostly through collaboration within and outside the institute.

Experience in the following topics will receive stronger consideration.

- Synthesis of metal nanoparticles
- Preparation and modification of 2-D nanosheets
- Assembly of nanoparticles on air-liquid and liquid-liquid interfaces
- Langmuir-Blodgettry
- Energy-storage devices
- Biosensing

The researchers will be able to interact with world-class scientists from diverse fields and have access to state-of-the-art research instruments. As a member of an early stage group, the researcher will participate in various aspects of building up a new lab, which can become a valuable experience when moving on to the next stages in their career.


Preferred requirements:

- Ph. D. degree in chemistry related fields (chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, etc.)
- Experience in synthesis, processing, and characterization of nanomaterials
- Experience in assembly of nanomaterials into higher order structures
- Comfortable with making scientific discussions in English

Salary
- Will be determined in accordance with the employment regulations of ShanghaiTech University


Starting date
- September 2017 or later
