Material Molecular Science; Experimental researches in materials molecular science on (i) synthesis and fabrication of novel molecules and material systems or (ii) exploitation of novel observation methods, toward developments of new properties and innovative functions of molecules and materials.
The successful candidates are expected to serve as a principal investigator of a research group with the support of competitive start-up funds and spaces that these positions offer.
