PhD student in materials science in KIST, Jeonbuk National University (JNBU), Korea

Subject areas

Dr. Seung Min Kim at KIST Jeonbuk and Prof. Anna Lee at Jeonbuk National University (JNBU) is looking for a highly motivated Ph.D. student to develop methods to synthesize single-walled carbon nanotubes with high aspect ratio, high crystallinity and high productivity. (Starting date of the Spring semester: March 1st, 2022)

Our research includes:

– Synthesis of single-walled carbon nanotubes by floating catalyst chemical vapor deposition with newly synthesized catalyst precursors.

– Development of novel approaches to highly increase the synthesis efficiency for single-walled carbon nanotubes

– In-situ TEM analysis of the reactions between catalyst particles and carbon

– Application of high-quality single-walled carbon nanotubes into various fields

The students will mainly conduct experiments at KIST Jeonbuk and take classes at JBNU. KIST Jeonbuk possesses various “state-of-the-art” process and analysis equipment, so a student will have lots of opportunities to gain hands-on experience for various equipment.
