Job Description:

We are searching for postdoctoral researchers who will be involved in synthesis and assembly of nanomaterials.

Successful candidates will work under the supervision of Dr. Franklin Kim. Research will be geared toward fundamental science, such as developing methods for controlling nanoparticle morphology and understanding self-assembly behavior of nanomaterials at liquid-liquid and air-liquid interfaces. However, practical application of the produced nanostructures will also be pursued, particularly in the field of energy storage and biosensing, through collaboration within and outside the institute.

For more information on Dr. Kim and his research, please visit http://www.kim.icems.kyoto-u.ac.jp/

Candidates with 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.

Starting date will be September 2017 or later.

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

Job Application:

If interested, please send curriculum vitae (CV), description of research interests, and contact information of referees to fkim@icems.kyoto-u.ac.jp.
