Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

1. Introduction

ZJU-Hangzhou Global Scientific and Technological Innovation Center (HIC) is a world-class and future-oriented R&D center, jointly founded by Zhejiang University and Hangzhou government. HIC’s mission is to build an open and collaborative international innovation hub in the Yangtze River Delta region that integrates chemistry, materials science, information technology, and life science. To build a world-class research team, the HIC is now inviting applications for postdoctoral fellowship program.

The Biological and Molecular Intelligent Manufacturing Institute is an innovative research platform at HIC. The institute is committed to tackling fundamental and technological challenges in the discovery of advanced molecules and materials for next-generation applications. The team will combine the state-of-the-art automated high-throughput experimentation facilities (ChemFoundry) and artificial intelligence to synergistically accelerate multidisciplinary research, including organic synthesis, functional polymers, porous materials for separation and catalysis, and process scale-up. Supported by the strong chemical industry in the Yangtze River Delta region, and the R&D capabilities of Zhejiang University, the Institute aims at becoming a world-leading innovation platform. 

2. Research Areas

The institute aims at integrating high-throughput experimentation facilities and artificial intelligence to address grant challenges in medicine, specialty chemicals, functional polymers, and advanced materials. Applicants with the following research experience will be preferred, while other relevant areas will also be considered.

  1. High-throughput experimentation technology (system integration, customized synthesis or analysis apparatus, and microfluidics);
  2. Molecule or material design based on artificial intelligence (deep learning, natural language processing, knowledge graph, big data and cloud computing, computational chemistry, and molecular dynamics);
  3. Small molecule synthesis;
  4. Functional polymers;
