Education and Appointments:

Zijian Wang was undergraduate from China University of Science and Technology and jointed Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences since 1976. During 1983-1985, he worked in Forel Institute in Geneva University and EAWAG in Zurich, Switzerland on lake eutrophication and surface chemistry, respectively. In 1987, he worked in Pharmaceutical Department in Fukoka University, Japan for biological analysis. From 1992-2000, he was deputed director and director of State Key Laboratory of Environmental Aquatic Chemistry. He is member of expertise group in the fields of resources and environment in the National High-Tech R&D Program since 2001 and in in the National Key Program for Water Pollution Control and Remediation. He is also members of several international associations, such as IAGH and members of editorial boards of several journals, such as China Acta of Environmental Science, China Journal of Environmental Chemistry, Wetland Research, Environmental Science and Health (A) and Water Quality, Exposure and Health. In 2006, he created the Asian Journal of Ecotoxicology and acts as the Chief  Editor.
He has authored and/or co-authored more than 400 peer reviewed journal papers such as in Environmental Health Perspect, Environmental Science and Technology, Water Research, Aquatic Toxicology, Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, Journal of Environmental Quality, Applied Toxicology and Pharmarcology, European Journal of Soil Science, Plant and Soil, et al.

Research Interest:
The research group headed by Prof. Zijian Wang focuses on water quality issues. The research activities cover developments of innovative sampling technologies, and in vitro and in vivo bioassays, and water quality assessment based on chemical analysis, environmental risks, as well as aquatic toxicology of unregulated chemicals.
Public Services:

The research work has been awarded the 2nd National Prize for Invention, 2nd National Prize for Natural Science, as well as 2nd National Prize for Technology Improvement.
