Dr. Chanchal Mandal
Assistant Professor

Dr. Mandal is currently working as Assistant Professor in Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering Discipline, Khulna University where he is working since 2018. After earning his bachelor degree from the same department he joined Professor Chai's Laboratory in Hanyang University, Republic of Korea to pursue his MS leading PhD degree. After successful completion of his doctoral research he was assigned as a post doctoral research fellow in the same university. He was hired by Professor Oh as a Research Professor in Korea University, Republic of Korea. In Khulna University Dr. Mandal has contributed toward lecturing in undergrad and MS courses, thesis supervision and other relevant academic and non academic responsibilities. He was also assigned as a guest reviewer in some reputed international journals related to his research fields.
