Ph.D. Positions in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at University of the District of Columbia

School of engineering and applied sciences (SEAS) is initiating Center of Nanotechnology Education and Research (CNRE) at University of the District of Columbia (UDC), Washington DC. This center has several openings for a highly motivated Ph.D. candidate in the exciting and high scope fields. Selected Ph.D. students will be considered for financial supports as a research assistant or teaching assistant. Successful candidates may get full tuition coverage and a competitive stipend to focus on doctoral research.

CNRE is equipped with cutting edge and well-equipped laboratories such as Nanotechnology Application Laboratory, Additive Manufacturing Laboratory, and Nanoscale Thermal Science Laboratory. CNRE is managed by UDC five highly reputed and successful research focus SEAS faculty. CNRE also have strong collaborations with several industries and globally reputed federal laboratories such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Our partnerships and collaboration with experts in many institutions and industries will provide a highly rewarding professional and educational experience to our Ph.D. students in CNRE. These Ph.D. positions will be preferably filled with USA citizens or green cardholders only. Students from minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. CNRE major focus is in the area of applying nanotechnology and nanoscale science to make groundbreaking discoveries in the following fields.

[1] Nanoelectronics nanoscale molecular devices: This topic will focus on utilizing molecules as the computer device, inventing novel materials, renewable energy harvesting, and chemical sensors. This research project has the potential to produce futuristic quantum computers, solar cells, and biomedical sensors and chemical sensors for challenging health. We seek highly motivated doctoral students to join us in the transformative research with our expert faculty with more than 25 years’ experience in the multidisciplinary background. We have 3-5 Ph.D. student positions on this topic.

A successful Ph.D. candidate for this position will have BS and or MS in the materials, electrical, chemical, physics, chemistry or related fields. Skills in computer programming and experience of working in research projects are desirable but not necessary. We seek Ph.D. students with strong writing and oral communications skills and open-mindedness towards learning and working in harmony with staff and students.   

 

Interested candidates should contact Dr. Pawan Tyagi through email: ptyagi@udc.edu 

[2] Application of Nanotechnology in Additive Manufacturing: This research focuses on inventing several technologies to solve critical problems related to as produced 3D printed (Additive manufacturing). Our Ph.D. students will have the opportunity to work with industries and laboratories while applying nanotechnology processes.
