About Us

  • We are the research group of Jia Zhu, Professor of College of Engineering and Applied Science at Nanjing University. Our interdisciplinary research bridges nanoscience, materials science, applied physics and engineering. We are probing fundamental electrical, optical and thermal phenomenon at nanoscale, and developing novel nanomaterials and devices for mainly energy applications including next generation solar, thermal and electrical related energy conversion and storage devices.

Join Us



We seek highly motivated research scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students to join the group. They will have the opportunity to work closely with the principal investigator on one of the following directions:

1. Energy Conversion

2. Nanoscale Heat Transfer

3. Nanophotonics

4. Energy Storage

5. Water Treatment
