Salary Not Specified
Posted Date
Jan 5, 2022

Applications are invited for postdoctoral researchers to join Prof. Shoji Hall’s group at Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University. The research in the Hall laboratory focuses on addressing problems in renewable energy storage and conversion by developing nanostructured electrocatalysts and by controlling interfacial dynamics at electrified metal-solution interfaces.

For more information, please visit:

Potential projects in these directions include:
  • Developing nanostructured ordered intermetallic materials with controlled morphology at low temperatures via electrochemical synthesis.
  • Developing methods to form C-C bonds by electrochemically deprotonating molecules with C-H bonds.
  • Modulate the transport of water (or other relevant proton donor) to electrified metal-solution interfaces to control reaction selectivity.

The applicant(s) is expected to hold a doctoral degree in a related field, such as materials science & engineering, chemistry, or chemical engineering.

Application Instructions

Applications are to be submitted through Interfolio:

Any questions, please contact Professor Hall via email at
