CV

Professor Margel received his Ph.D. from the Department of Materials Science, at the Weizmann Institute in 1976. He completed his postdoctoral studies at the California Institute of Technology (CALTECH), Department of Inorganic Chemistry in 1977 and then served two years as a senior scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at CALTECH. From 1980 to 1986 he worked as a senior scientist,and from 1985 as an associate Professor, at the Department of Materials Science, the Weizmann Institute. He was a visiting scientist at DuPont, Central Research and Development in 1986-87, in 1992 at the Polymer Section, University of Ulm, Germany, in 1997 at the Department of Physical Electronics, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan and in 2005 at the Institute for Soldiers' Nanotechnologies, MIT, Cambridge, MA.

He joined Bar-Ilan Chemistry Department as an Associate Professor at Oct. 1987 and was appointed full professor in 1994. Professor Margel was the head of the Department of Chemistry at Bar-Ilan between 1999 -2001, and the dean of the Faculty of Exact Sciences for the next 2 academic years.
