Rahman) assumed his current responsibilities as an Associate Professor of the Institute of Environmental Radioactivity, Fukushima University, Japan in Oct 2015. He also has an honorary appointment to serve as a Collaborative Professor of Kanazawa University, Japan from Mar 2015 for next two years. He started his educator and researcher career as a faculty member of the University of Chittagong, Bangladesh from Oct 2002. Lately, he has been affiliated to the Department of Applied and Environmental Chemistry of the University of Chittagong as an Associate Professor, starting from Mar 2012. Formerly, he worked in the Department of Chemistry of the same institution as Assistant Professor (Jun 2004–Mar 2012) and Lecturer (Oct 2002–Jun 2004). Prior to that, he worked as a management staff (May 2001–Oct 2002) in the Coats Bangladesh Ltd. (a member of the global operations of Coats PLC, UK). Ismail M. M. Rahman had adjunct attachments with Kanazawa University, Japan (Visiting Research Professor, Dec 2014–Mar 2015; JSPS Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Apr 2012–Mar 2014; Visiting Researcher; Dec 2011–Jan 2012), INTERAC, Japan (Language Consultant, Sept 2009–Mar 2011), British Council, Bangladesh (Examination Services, Jan 2007–Sept 2008) and Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan (Research Fellow, Oct 2004–Sep 2005). Ismail M. M. Rahman received his Ph.D. degree in Environmental Analytical Chemistry from Kanazawa University, Japan (2011). He also achieved a Diploma in Environment from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan (2005). Besides, he has a M.Sc. degree in Applied Chemistry (1996, completed in 2001) and a B.Sc. degree in Chemistry (1995, completed in 1998), all from the University of Chittagong, Bangladesh. Ismail M. M. Rahman has the honor to receive Chubu Research Fellowship on Environmental Technology (2014–2015): The Foundation of Chubu Science & Technology Center, Japan; JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for Foreign Researchers (2012–2014): Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS); Japan Government (Monbukagakusho: MEXT) Scholarship (2008–2011); Asian Youth Fellowship: Japan Foundation, Japan (2008); TIGP Research Fellowship: Academia Sinica, Taiwan (2007); TokyoTech-UNESCO International Research Fellowship, Japan (2004–2005). In 2009, Bangladesh Academy of Sciences nominated him to join in the JSPS-sponsored 2nd HOPE Meeting held in Japan (an opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogues with Nobel laureates and other distinguished scientists) as a representative participant from Bangladesh, and his contribution received the award for ‘Best Poster’ and ‘Best Group Presentation’. Ismail M. M. Rahman’s research interest includes study on the fate and behavior of environmental pollutants in the biosphere; design of low energy and low burden environmental improvement (remediation) technology; implementation of sustainable waste management practices for treatment, handling, reuse and ultimate residual disposition of solid wastes; nature and type of interactions in organic liquid mixtures for process engineering design applications. He has authored a number of journal articles, book chapters and books.
