  • Dear Dr. Jinyao Tang,
    I am currently an undergraduate student in the Material Science and Engineering department of Imperial College London and will have my master’s degree in the following year. Nanomaterial is one of my major courses, which is really fascinated me after learning it. This interest pursues me to further research on it.
    Is the date shown in the article, which is December 1st, the deadline for applying for this position and no longer available, or could some room be given? It will be my pleasure to receive your reply.
    Keyu Yao
    Best wishes.
