Professor Mohammad Salimullah was born on January 5, 1949 in Dhaka. His father was Late Md. Ahsanullah and Mother Late Amirun Nesa.

Prof. Salimullah got B.Sc. (Hons.) in Physics, Dhaka University, 1971; M.Sc. (Thesis group ) in Physics, Dhaka University, 1973; Ph.D. in Physics, IIT, New Delhi, 1980; Plasma Physics, Nuclear, Solid State Physics; Dusty Plasma Physics, Waves, Instabilities, Space Physics, Laser-produced Plasmas; Semiconductor Plasma Physics, Waveguides; Laser-plasma Beat Wave Accelerators; Nonlinear Interactions: Parametric instabilities, etc.

He was Research Fellow, Dhaka University, 1973-1975; Research Scholar, Institute of Technology, New Delhi; 1976-1980; Lecturer in Physics, Jahangirnagar University, 1975-1980; Assistant Professor in Physics, Jahangirnagar University; 1980–1985; Associate Professor in Physics, Jahangirnagar University; 1985-1989; Professor in Physics, Jahangirnagar University; 1989 to date; Dean of Science, Jahangirnagar University; 1986-1988; Chairman Department of Physics, Jahangirnagar University, 1992-1994. Foreign Professor, Salam Chair in Physics, GC Univ., Lohare, Pakistan.

Research interest of Dr. Salimullah included parametric instabilities in laser-produced plasmas, nonlinear effects in semiconductor plasmas, laser-plasma beat wave accelerators, and dusty plasmas of space and laboratory conditions.  His works on dusty plasmas, in particular waves and instabilities and the theory of Coulomb dust crystal formations in dusty environments, had initiated a lot of interest in the plasma physics community of the world. Dr. Salimullah is particularly recognized for introducing for the first time the dust-lower-hybrid wave and dust shear Alfven wave in dusty magnetoplasmas of space and laboratory conditions and the Shukla-Nambu-Salimullah potential in Physics.

Dr. Salimullah was awarded the H. P. Roy Gold Medal 1981 by the Dhaka University for Research in Physics; The Joint Award 1986 by the Bangladesh Academy of Sciences and The Third World Academy of Sciences, Trieste, Italy; Bangladesh University Grants Commission (UGC) Award 1988 for Research in Physics; "Kharazmi International Prize (1994)" by Iranian Research Organization for Science and Technology (by President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani of the Islamic Republic of Iran); The Asiatic Society of Bangladesh Award (2001) for research contribution in Physics; Senior Scientist Award-2002 by Bangladesh Academy of Sciences; ISESCO Science Prize 2003 at the OIC meeting, Tehran, Iran. Fellow, Bangladesh Academy of Sciences; Fellow, Islamic World Academy of Sciences, 2008.

Professor Salimullah and his Group published more than 300 research papers in national and international journals and conference proceedings.

He was the Editor, Journal of Jahangirnagar University Review, 2001-2002. Editor, Jahangirnagar University Journal of Science (2000).
