Postdoctoral Research Associate in Polymer Materials and Membrane Separation

Tianjin Polytechnic University - State Key Laboratory of Separation Membranes and Membrane Processes

Duration: Available immediately with a fixed term of 2 years
Number of vacancy: 4 posts available 

Research Project
Membrane-based separation technology, as one of the most effective and efficient technologies, have been widely used in many fields including wastewater treatment, seawater desalination, electronic, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Our group is working on novel membrane materials and membrane processes. Now, we have several projects to develop isoporous membranes using block copolymer and nanomaterials for precise separation, fabricate low-pressure nanofiltration membrane for efficient and economical drinking water treatment, and design the third generation of integrated membrane system for desalination. Our research is multidisciplinary, and range from materials sciences and polymer synthesis, through membrane fabrication and functionalization, to water treatment and desalination. 

Ideal Candidates 

  • Ph.D. in Polymer, Materials, Chemical Engineering, or Chemistry
  • Self-motivated and well-organized with excellent oral and communication skills
  • Strong research background in polymer and nanomaterials synthesis, and filtration membrane fabrication and application
  • Good publication records

Tianjin Polytechnic University (TJPU), founded in 1912, is one of the leading universities for the higher education of membrane science & technology in China. TJPU consists of 16 schools, offering bachelor, master and doctor degrees in undergraduate programs, 78 master degree programs and 16 doctoral degree programs. The campus has more than 28,000 full-time students studying here. 

The State Key Laboratory of Separation Membranes and Membrane Processes (SMMP) in TJPU is the only one national level laboratory for the research and development of membrane separation technology in China. TJPU has a great history of developing the first domestic hollow fiber membrane module as early as in 1974, and successfully commercialized hollow fiber membranes into products to found Tianjin MOTIMO Membrane Technology Co., Ltd in 2012. In 2016, “National Center for International Research on Separation Membranes” and “Demonstration Base of National Innovative Talent Training” were approved to be established by Ministry of Science and Technology, China.
