Personal information


For more information, please visit the Zhang research group Homepage.

Baozhong Zhang obtained his B. Sc. in 2001 at Peking University (China) and Ph.D. in 2008 at Memorial University (Canada, advisor: Prof. Graham Bodwell). From 2008 to 2014, he stayed at ETH Zurich (Switzerland) in the group of Prof. Dieter Schlüter as post-doc (2008-2012) and group leader (2012-2014). Since September 2014 he is bitr. universitetslektor (assistant professor) at Lund University. He has co-authored about 30 peer-reviewed publications in highly ranked journals (e.g. Nature Communications, Nature Chemistry, Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., J. Am. Chem. Soc. Macromolecules. etc.). His research interests mainly focus on synthesis and application of highly branched functional polymers, as well as development of polymerization and postpolymerization reaction methodologies.

B.Sc. and M. Sc. positions

Highly qualified and motivated B.Sc. and M. Sc. students are welcome. Students with an interest in polymer chemistry are encouraged to contact B. Zhang directly.

Doctoral and post-doctoral positions

Doctoral and post-doctoral positions may be available depending on funding opportunities and the background of the applicant. In addition, I am always interested in writing projects and seeking funds teaming up with motivated applicants. Informal inquiries are also welcome.
