Members

We are building up a team of exceptional scientists and engineers who are interested in pursuing fundamentally innovative ideas in multidisciplinary research environment. Our lab has multiple position openings for postdoctoral or graduate researchers who have following interest but not limited to:
– Synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials
– Surface chemistry and bio-conjugations
– Biosensors
– Drug delivery and bioimaging
– Molecular and cellular biology

Highly talented and motivated people at all stages of their academic career are welcome to get in touch. To apply for open positions, please email your CV including publications, brief statement of your research accomplishments and interest to Prof. Joo. If interested in pursuing graduate study in any relevant program at UNIST, including biomedical engineeringchemical engineeringmaterials science, biological science, chemistry, and others, please get in touch to Prof. Joo for more information.

Prior to apply the graduate admission, students are recommended to conduct the research internship in our lab. Undergraduate Research Fellowship of UNIST provides a research internship during summer (U-SURF) and winter (U-WURF) in our lab.
