Yerushalmi Research Group

About us

Our research is focused on materials chemistry, nanomaterials and surface chemistry. We are located at the institute of chemistry at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The Yerushalmi group research is primarily focused on development and utilization of surface chemistry to modify the chemical and physical properties of materials at the nanoscale.

Our research topics include:
  • Hybrid Nanostructure synthesis & properties
  • Bottom-up synthesis and assembly of nano architectures
  • Catalytic properties of nanostructures arrays
  • Development of advanced nanocomposite materials

Prof. Yerushalmi is the recipient of several awards including:

  • Krill Prize
  • Kennedy prize
  • The career development award by the Human Frontier Science Program
  • the ERC young scientist research grant
Roie is an alumni of the Israeli Young Academy, a newly formed organization for the advancement of young scientists and science in Israel, formed by the Israeli Academy of Sciences and Humanities.


Positions are avilable for motivated M.Sc and Ph.D. students, and for outstanding postdoctoral fellows. Applicants should submit their CV to Prof. Roie Yerushalmi:
