Polymer Chemists and Nanoscientists - Shanghai Jiao Tong University

Greetings from Shanghai Jiao Tong University!

 

We have several job openings for experienced polymer chemists and nanoscientists. The candidate should have a doctoral degree in polymer chemistry / materials science / nanotechnology. We will consider hiring chemists who are skillful in macromolecular synthesis (“click chemistry”, ATRP, etc.).  Our laboratories are also well equipped to synthesize nanomaterials such as graphene, silicon nanowires, carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanocrystals.  Depending on the experience, the candidates can be hired as university faculty members, research chemists, or post-doctoral fellows.  Shanghai Jiao Tong University is considered to be one of the top three science and engineering schools in China. Outstanding alumni include President Jiang Zemin, Dr. Qian Xuesen and many others. The research faculty in our institute excels in the areas of polymers, nanomaterials, and devices (e.g., OLED, nanoelectronics and sensors R&D).  Our group has published in SCI journals, including Diamond & Related Materials, J. Phys. Chem. B,  Makromol. Chemie, Small, Journal of Materials Chemistry, Carbon, Sensors and Actuators, B: Chemical, Advances in Polymer Science, and Chemistry, A European Journal. Our recent work on graphene, functionalized graphene, and devices appears in a book edited by Eric S. W. Kong and is published by Wiley, New York, with the title ‘Nanomaterials, Polymers and Devices: Materials Functionalization and Device Fabrication’ (2015) [ http://as.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470048069.html ].
