Advanced Materials Prepared from Synthetic Chemistry for Nanomedicine, Energy Storage, and Catalysis

Position Openings: Postdoctoral Positions in the Zhao Group

We are seeking several postdoctoral scholars (research fellows) who will pursue research on the preparation, characterization, and applications of functional materials. Our ongoing projects include (a) catalysis and gas storage of porous materials (e.g. inorganic-organic hybrids and metal-organic frameworks), (b) functional nanosystem-based nanomedicine, and (c) energy storage and conversion of advanced porous materials. Successful candidates should have Ph.D. in chemistry or materials science. Demonstrated ability to effectively communicate research results in the forms of journal papers and oral presentations is needed. Creative and self-motivated individuals with a passion in the development of novel work leading to high-impact applications are especially welcome. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with experience. To apply, please submit cover letter and CV including a list of publications as well as the names and contact information of three referees electronically to Dr Yanli Zhao (zhaoyanli[at]
