Graduate Research Assistantship Positions
Multiple research assistantship positions are available to qualified “doctoral” degree pursuing graduate students (Please refer to the “Degree Programs” in the MAE department website for requirement and deadlines) in mechanical engineering (or other disciplines including material science, physics, chemistry, biology, or chemical engineering etc.) who have strong background and interest in thermal sciences/engineering, and/or materials processes/characterization.
Research Areas: Two-phase heat and mass transfer (boiling and condensation) in porous media, multi-scale heat transfer, molecular dynamics simulation, sustainable energy conversion and storage, solid state thermoelectric, rechargeable battery, combustion, membrane distillation, and nano-material synthesis/processes/characterization.
Experience and Skill Requirements (including, but not limited to)
- Knowledge in fluid mechanics, heat/mass transfer and numerical methods
- Laboratory experiences and skills including instrumentation, CAD drawing, part fabrication, hardware experiment, material synthesis/processes/characterization, micro/nano fabrication and/or optics
- Computational skills using CFD codes (research codes, packages such as ANSYS Fluent, OpenFOAM, etc.)
- Programming skills using languages (C++, FORTRAN, MATLAB, etc.)
Interested students should submit their CV/resumes including GRE and TOEFL (for international applicants) scores and official academic transcripts (scanned PDF) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
