Why I donate to  MRS post-doctor award

My name is Xiaoping Jiang, President of MTI Corporation and a Chinese. Thanks to MRS for accepting my donation and proposal to set up a Post-doctor award for global material research. This is 10 years commitment made by my family foundation and supported by MTI Corp. The reason I donate for post-doctor award is that I really understood the post-doctoral situation (difficulty & challenges). The post-doctors play a very important role between professor and graduate student, but often get ignored. I was a post-doctor from 1988 to 1991 at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). I worked very hard and dreamed about becoming a Professor because my father also is a professor in materials research, but was not able to find a suitable position after post-doctor. Then, I started MTI Corp in 1994; For 20 years, MTI Corp attended MRS meetings continuously, and served materials research from single crystal substrate to lab equipment. Global material research scientists, especially post-doctor helped MTI Corp's survival and growth. I feel now it is time for me to return the favor.

I hope this award will help post-doctor get better recognition and encouragement to do better research. I wish all of you can realize your dream.

Thanks again for accepting my donation.
