Jacon Klein - Biography#

Klein gained his BA in Physics at the University of Cambridge, where in 1977 he also received his M.A. and PhD at the Cavendish Laboratory. He did his postdoc at the Weizmann Institute in Israel, and from 1980-1984 was a Senior Scientist at the Weizmann Institute and a University Demonstrator at the Cavendish Laboratory. In 1984 he was appointed Professor at the Weizmann Institute (full Professor from 1987), and subsequently headed its Polymer Research department and was Chairman of its Scientific Council. From 2000-2007 Klein was the Dr. Lee’s Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford and Head of its Physical and Theoretical Chemistry Department (2000-2005).

His interests in soft matter have ranged from the dynamics and interfacial properties of polymers to the behaviour of confined fluids and biological lubrication, and, more recently, tissue engineering.

Klein has published over 230 papers. His work has been cited some 10,000 times, with an H-factor 53.

His honours include the Charles Vernon Boys Prize of the Institute of Physics, UK (1984), the High Polymer Physics Prize of the American Physical Society (1995), the 2010 Prize of the Israel Chemical Society, the 2011 Soft Matter and Biophysical Chemistry Award of the UK Royal Society of Chemistry and the 2012 Tribology Gold Medal. In 2009, he received an ERC Advanced Grant.
