Lab Recruitment

We are actively recruiting postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate students with specialty in nanomaterials synthesis, nanobiomaterials, and biomedical engineering.

우리 연구실에서는 "나노화학소재 합성", "나노바이오소재", "바이오메디컬공학" 중의 하나의 분야를 중점적으로 연구할 성실하고 열정적인 박사후 연구원, 대학원생 (석박사통합과정), 학부연구생 (3-4학년)을 모집합니다.

모든 학부 연구생 혹은 졸업생은 대략 2개월 동안의 "인턴 기간"동안 우리 연구실의 연구 분야와 환경 및 연구원들이 본인한테 잘 맞는지 경험한 후에, 학부 연구생 혹은 졸업생이 우리 연구실에서의 대학원 (석박사통합과정) 진학 여부를 결정하는 방법으로 진행합니다.
