Prospective Researchers

Postdoctoral Research Positions

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply for a postdoctoral research position in the KRG group. We are looking for well-qualified Ph.D. researchers to join our group. Prior experience in materials synthesis and characterization is recommended, although candidates with other skill sets (e.g. molecular
modeling, synthetic chemistry, etc.) are encouraged to apply. A degree in chemical engineering is not a pre-requisite for consideration. Highly motivated candidates with degrees in chemistry, materials science, and other related engineering and the natural science fields are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please send your curriculum vitae and any questions to Dr.Karim  at

Doctoral Research Openings

The KRG group is anticipating openings for Ph.D. candidates in the Fall semester. Graduate students that have been accepted to the University of Houston and successfully meet the requirements established by the Department of Chemical Engineering Graduate Program are eligible to apply for a research position. Previous experience in materials synthesis and characterization is beneficial, but not necessary.
Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Karim and his students with questions about our research. More general questions of graduate admissions should be directed to staff in the University of Houston Graduate Admissions Office.

Graduate Research Opportunities

KRG group is recruiting graduate students who are work on power with other researchers in the lab. Researches are done to let students learn about a broad range of materials synthesis and techniques. Graduate students are welcome to be a part of the group and enhance their skills. Interested students can send in their Resume, CV or any required documents for them to be hired to Aman Agrawal at .

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

The KRG group is seeking highly motivated undergraduate students to work alongside doctoral and postdoctoral researchers on cutting-edge technologies and materials that are relevant to many industrial applications. Projects are designed to expose students to a broad range of materials synthesis and characterization techniques. Undergraduate students are expected to participate in group meetings, present their research at departmental symposia, and work on a novel research topic that can produce a publication in a scientific journal.

Interested UH students should email to Aman Agrawal at filling up the above application. International and non-UH students should consider applying for the UH NSF REU program (see link below).

It is also recommended that interested students become familiar with programs at the University of Houston that promote undergraduate research and provide financial awards. Links to several of these websites are listed below:

Provosts Undergraduate Research Scholarship Program (PURS)

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)

Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP)

Cullen Engineering Summer NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

For questions about these programs contact the UH Office of Undergraduate Research.
