applications for Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions (Synthetic Inorganic
and Organic Chemistry) in the AIChemy (Artificial Intelligence
Chemistry) Lab at the School of Physical Science and Technology (SPST), ShanghaiTech
The AIChemy Lab led by Professor Omar M. Yaghi is seeking highly motivated
postdoctoral research fellow candidates with interests in the area of
fundamental inorganic chemistry, organic synthesis, and materials development.
Projects are focused on making materials from an increasing number of unique building
units that are arranged in specific sequences within crystals.
The chosen candidate
will be an important part of a new group of chemists at ShanghaiTech in the
Artificial Intelligence Chemistry (AIChemy) Laboratory and can expect to gain a
variety of experiences during their time as a postdoctoral researcher.
1. Candidates should
have a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in Chemistry.
2. The ideal
candidate will have extensive experience with synthetic chemistry, particularly
with air-free Schlenk and glove box techniques as well as standard
characterization techniques such as NMR, MS, IR, UV-Vis, and XRD are required.
3. Experience with
EPR, electrochemistry, electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, or
Mossbauer spectroscopy would be welcomed.
4. Have first-author
publications in peer-reviewed journals.
communication and writing skills in English are required.
6. Willingness to
perform high-risk, high-reward research and to sustain and overcome repeated
failures that are associated with such research.
Main responsibilities include, but are not
1. Carry out
research projects independently as well as part of a team.
2. Liaise between
the AIchemy laboratory at ShanghaiTech and Prof. Yaghi’s group at UC Berkeley.
3. Serve as a mentor
to graduate students.
4. Carry out routine
administrative tasks to keep the laboratory operations running smoothly.
