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 utilize microbial biotechnologies and cloning technologies to develop biomimetic membrane for water treatment. Our research is multidisciplinary ranging from materials sciences and polymer engineering, chemical engineering, to environmental science and bioengineering, through membrane fabrication and functionalization, to water treatment and desalination.


  • Ph.D. with Microbiology and Water Treatment research background
  • Self-motivated and well-organized with excellent oral and communication skills
  • Good publication records
  • Research experience in one of the following areas:
  • Microbial biotechnologies for water treatment
  • Biomimetic membrane for water treatment
  • Cloning technologies for protein expression and purification

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. 

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. TJPU and SMMP are leveling up to a new stage of extraordinary development and welcoming well-established scholars and talented scientists to join us.
