Multiple PhD positions in Mechanical Engineering with full financial support are available starting from Fall 2016 or Spring 2017 in Prof. Xianming Dai's group (simondai.weebly.com) at The University of Texas, Dallas. The Department of Mechanical Engineering is in a fast growth, with 5 faculty hiring every year. The whole College of Engineering will expand significantly due to the State’s economic prosperity. The goal of UT-Dallas is to become top 50 in the United Sates. Detailed position descriptions are shown below:
(1) Heat transfer, thermal energy or thermal management of batteries
We work on thermal energy and heat transfer to solve the energy and water issues in our society. Full supported students with interests in condensation, capillary evaporation, flow boiling or thermal management of batteries are strongly encouraged to apply. These positions are mostly experiments. We are going to explore a lot of new sciences and applications in these areas. Previous experiences in phase change heat transfer, complex fluids and microfluidics will be very helpful.
To apply, please send your CV, PS, transcripts, TOEFL, GRE, and everything that you believe will help your application in a single PDF to Dr. Dai (email@example.com) with the email title “PhD application + energy + your institute”. To save you time, I will contact you after a quick evaluation and help you submit a formal application.
(2) Micro/nanofabrication or materials synthesis for superhydrophobic surfaces, energy or biosensor.
No major requirement for this position. Motivated students related to science and engineering in any major can apply.
We learn from nature and create new materials for energy applications. Fully supported candidates in this position will fabricate or synthesize micro/nano materials for liquid repellency, batteries, bio-detection, heat transfer or fluid dynamics applications. Previous experiences related to bioinspired materials, micro/nano fabrication in the clean room, advanced manufacture, electrochemical deposition, chemical vapor deposition or other materials synthesis will be very helpful.
To apply, please send your CV, PS, transcripts, TOEFL, GRE, and everything that you believe will help your application in a single PDF to Prof. Dai (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the email title “PhD application + Materials + your institute”. To save you time, I will contact you after a quick evaluation and help you submit a formal application.
(3) Bio-sensor, bio-heat transfer, or other areas in biomedical engineering / bioengineering. Priority will be given to government-funded PhD students, exchange students or visiting scholars. UT-Dallas has a very strong program in bioengineering, which is in collaboration with the prominent University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Please send your CV to Dr. Dai (email@example.com) with the email title “PhD application + bioengineering + your institute”.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering is among the fastest growing programs at UT Dallas. A new building for Mechanical Engineering is under construction and will be ready within two years. The department will continue to hire 5 faculty every year. The Texas government is trying to build UT Dallas as another top 50 university (参考百度百科: 德克萨斯大学达拉斯分校; 维基百科: 德克萨斯州大学达拉斯分校). Even though the Mechanical Engineering is a new department at UT Dallas, but the ranking is rising very fast every year. It will continue to rise in future with the continuous faculty hiring.
