About Our Work

 

MS and Ph.D. degree positions

We are currently recruiting graduate students for M.S. and Ph.D. positions.
We welcome self-motivated, outstanding candidates wishing to contribute to research in the area of advanced functional materials such as :
  • Cancer research: Intracellular biomacromolecules (DNA, RNA, and proteins) delivery nanodevice for biological systems; application in colorectal cancer
  • Bio-catalysis: Enzymatic conversion of non-food biomass in food products. Energy and the Environment
  • Catalysts for Biofuels Synthesis: Metal, and metal-oxide nanocatalysts on porous materials support for catalytic conversion of non-food biomass to fuels;
  • Mesoporous Silica Nanomaterials for environmental applications (sensing of water contaminants and carbon capture).
  • Metal-Organic Frameworks for catalyst, gas storage, and heat exchange applications
  • Sustainable/Bio-renewable resources utilization.
  • Other Advanced Materials Research Area:
    • Materials Chemistry
    • Electronic, Optical, and Magnetic Materials
    • Advanced Manufacturing
    • Naturally-Occurring Polymers
