Our group is actively recruiting highly motivated postdoctoral associates and graduate students to perform cutting-edge research on material- and system-level studies of solid-state materials for energy storage devices (e.g., Li-ion, Na-ion, Mg-ion and solid-state batteries). The aim of our research is to unravel the fundamental correlations between chemistry-structure-performance of battery materials.

We welcome candidates from all disciplines of science and engineering, including Chemistry, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering and Physics. Candidates with a strong computational background are preferred. We work closely with research groups from leading institutions in U.S. (MIT, Harvard, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, Stony Brook, Maryland) and in U.K. (Cambridge), and with beamline scientists from Advanced Photon Source, National Synchrotron Light Source, and Spallation Neutron Source in U.S..

Our group is part of the University of Michigan – Shanghai Jiaotong Joint Institute, located in Shanghai, China. The Joint Institute, founded in 2006, is the result of a strategic partnership between two top universities in the U.S. and China. The Joint Institute expects to become an internationally visible research institution on par with elite US universities.

We provide competitive salary of 250 -300 k RMB per year and housing allowance. Typical employee benefits of Shanghai Jiao Tong University will also be provided.

We ask those interested send their CV to the principal investigator. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any other related questions. We look forward to seeing you in Shanghai!
