First Korean Gutenberg Research College Fellow Appointed from SNU

Sep 29, 2020

Professor CHAR Kookheon of the SNU School of Chemical and Biological Engineering was appointed a Gutenberg Research College Fellow by the Gutenberg Research College (GRC, affiliated with the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz).

A Gutenberg Research College Fellow holds a special researcher rank of international authority, and it is the first time that the GRC has chosen a scholar from outside Germany to become a fellow. This also makes Professor Char the first Korean to have become a fellow of the GRC.

Over 180 SCI articles were published by Professor Char on his research in the field of polymer thin film, and such continuous research for the last 20 years has been widely acknowledged. He is also known for having been awarded the Gutenberg Research Award by the Johannes-Gutenberg University of Mainz and the German Chemical Society in 2006.

Professor Char currently holds the position of director of the National Creative Research Initiative Center for Intelligent Hybrids.

Professor Char will be providing academic guidance to three German doctoral students for the next two years, with all funds provided by the GRC at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.
