Join us ?

To JOIN US (another version) …||… WHY at TUAT ? |

Join us as a doctoral student ? Starting from October or April (two times per year).

Are you interested in doing doctoral studies in the science and engineering of particles (nano-particles, micron-particles, aerosols), as well as the related transport phenomena or phase-tranfers ?

Basic research: Nanometer- and sub-micrometer-sized particles: Synthesis, Measurement, Transport and Assembly

Applications: Material synthesis and processing for energy-related system, plants/food system, chemical-sensor for agriculture, medical-related materials, models for simulating atmospheric phenomena (global warming and climate change, etc.)

⇒⇒ Our research area…

Potential candidates are encouraged to contact us along with Resume, as well as Research Statement.

In this group, Japanese language ability is not “must”. All documents (seminar-handout, abstracts, e-mails) are written in English and all students in our group can speak/write in English. Contact us: LABWL @

A doctoral student can finish the course (with a degree) shorter than 3 years, if the “necessary condition” (publication numbers, etc.) is satisfied. The graduation months are March, June, September, December (four times in a year)

NOTE: Because a number of candidates (from TUAT Dept. of Chemical Engineering, etc.) applied for the entrance exam, right now our group may has no potential to welcome more a Master’s course student.
