The Soft Materials Research Laboratory is an interdisciplinary research group developing synthetic polymers and nanocomposites for stretchable electronics, electromechanical and photonic devices. Strong postdoctoral and graduate student candidates are welcome to apply for positions involving synthesis of quantum dot, functional polymers, and nanocomposites, development of soft actuators and flexible thin film devices.

 Required qualifications include:

  1. PhD in chemistry, polymer science, materials chemistry, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, or related fields;
  2. Strong hands-on experience in several of these fields: synthesis of quantum dots, perovskite nanocrystal growth, materials development, synthesis of nanocomposites, nanomaterial processing, polymer thin film devices, thermal materials;
  3. Strong communication skill and interpersonal skill.

Interested candidates may contact Professor Qibing Pei at for further information.
