 Open Position


UM Postdoc Fellowship

We have one UM Postdoc Fellowship opportunity in the area of graphene and other two-dimensional materials. The candidate should have earned a PhD degree from an  internationally recognized institution, typically in one of the following areas: materials science, physics, chemistry, chemical engineering. Optimally, candidates with extensive knowledge of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies are sought. Qualified candidate will receive the UM Postdoc Fellowship of 500,000 MOP/year for two years. The starting date is Fall 2018. Interested candidates should send Prof. G. Hong  via e-mail a cover letter, CV, and the contact information of two references.
