Applications are invited for postdoctoral researchers to join Prof. Shoji Hall's group at Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University. The research in the Hall laboratory focuses on addressing problems in renewable energy storage and conversion by developing nanostructured electrocatalysts and by controlling interfacial dynamics at electrified metal-solution interfaces.
For more information, please visit: engineering.jhu.edu/hall
Potential projects in these directions include:
Developing nanostructured ordered intermetallic materials with controlled morphology at low temperatures via electrochemical synthesis.
Developing methods to form C-C bonds by electrochemically deprotonating molecules with C-H bonds.
Modulate the transport of water (or other relevant proton donor) to electrified metal-solution interfaces to control reaction selectivity.
The applicant(s) is expected to hold a doctoral degree in a related field, such as materials science & engineering, chemistry, or chemical engineering.
Johns Hopkins University remains committed to its founding principle, that education for all students should be grounded in exploration and discovery. Hopkins students are challenged not just to learn but also to advance learning itself. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and entrepreneurship are all encouraged and nourished in this unique educational environment. After more than 130 years, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research. Faculty members and their research colleagues at the university's Applied Physics Laboratory have each year since 1979 won Johns Hopkins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The university has nine academic divisions and campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area. The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the School of Education and the Carey Business School are based at the Homewood campus in northern Baltimore. The schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing share a campus in east Baltimore with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Peabody Institute, a leading professional school of music, is located on Mount Vernon Place in downtown Bal...timore. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies is located in Washington's Dupont Circle area.
