Join the Team!

We are ready to offer high level education and facilities so that you can conduct top-class chemistry during your collegiate and academic career. We’re a young multidisciplinary lab welcoming highly motivated students and researchers from various science disciplines (catalysis, energy, biomaterials and nanotechnology, biomedical imaging and cancer therapy) to join our team! Our goal is to make creative use of nature-inspired cooperative interactions to achieve new modes of reactivity using diverse techniques. We are committed to building an exciting, collaborative, and supportive environment. Our group members involved in biomedical research will have the potential opportunity to participate in Arkansas IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (Arkansas INBRE).


Funded PhD studentships are usually available in the group each year. Graduate students are welcome to join our group through several of the University of Arkansas graduate programs, including the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry Graduate Program or the Microelectronics and Photonics Graduate Program or the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program.
Informal inquiries can be made to Professor Beyzavi, but applications must then be made to one of the above-mentioned Graduate Programs.
For international students please note the entry qualifications listed here.

Graduate students currently at the University of Arkansas who are interested in talking or rotating should contact Hassan by email, or are welcome to meet in person.


We are currently seeking a talented Post-Doctoral Fellow to join our research group. Candidates should have a PhD by the postdoctoral appointment start-date, and provide evidence of scientific excellence and creativity.
Interested scientists who wish to conduct our group should send their CV (including references), a brief summary of their previous research projects and a brief summary of the areas of research.
Prospective postdoctoral researchers are strongly encouraged to identify potential external postdoctoral funding, and work with Professor Beyzavi to submit a research proposal. Preference will be given to candidates that have secured external funding.

There is currently one postdoctoral fellow position available in MOF and COF Chemistry in our group.” You must submit your application through this link in order to be considered for this position.


Undergraduates interested in research are encouraged to contact Hassan directly by email or meet in person for opportunities to explore new research and present results on campus and at national conferences.
Undergraduates can obtain course credit for extracurricular research. We would be happy to work with you to develop a project topic. For a for-credit project students are required, at the end of the semester, to write a progress report on their research. If this is successful it can become a publishable paper, or part of a publishable paper.


We always welcome visiting scientist or students from all over the world to our multidisciplinary and dynamic research group. There is a strong emphasis on individual professional development, where all participants develop a broad range of skills, learn, make mistakes, and celebrate achievements. The visitors would also benefit from our state-of-the-art facilities in our department or Research Centers such as Institute for Nanoscience and Engineering, Center for Protein and Structure, Statewide Mass Spectrometry Facility.
