Job description and Requirements
Financial support (full scholarship) is available for two PhD student positions in the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering (MNE) in the School of Engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Fall 2015. The research focus is on advanced functional materials for energy and environmental applications, such as photocatalysts, luminescent materials (phosphors), sensors, battery electrodes and solar cells. Highly motivated students with solid training in Materials Science and Engineering, Materials Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Applied Chemistry or Solid State Physics are encouraged to apply.
Candidates with strong experimental skills in advanced functional materials synthesis (e.g., gas phase and/or wet-chemical methods, such as ALD, CVD, PVD, sol-gel, and hydrothermal) and characterization (such as TEM, SEM, AFM, XRD, BET, UV-VIS, FT-IR, and photoluminescent analysis) will be considered a plus. The successful candidate should have strong motivation and passion in doing research on advanced functional materials.
English proficiency: GRE and TOEFL (or IELTS) are required for admission by VCU. Applicants should have excellent oral and written communication skills.
