Opening Positions in Nanoscale Optics, Plasmonics, Metamaterials, Metasurfaces, and Heat Transfer

 

 

Ph.D. Student

 

We are recruiting highly motivated students with strong research interests to pursue Ph.D. degree in the areas of nanoscale optics, heat transfer, and metamaterials, starting from Fall 2017 or Spring 2018. Our interdisciplinary research projects require students having strong experimental or theoretical skills in one of the following areas: electromagnetics, optics and photonics, thermo-fluids and heat transfer, applied physics, NEMS/MEMS, and cleanroom nanofabrication. Students with various backgrounds in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, applied physics and materials science are strongly encouraged to apply for the Ph.D. program in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology.

 


Postdoctoral Fellow

 

We are seeking creative Postdoctoral Research Scientists, with strong experimental or theoretical skills in the research areas of nanoscale optics, plasmonics, metamaterials, metasurfaces, radiation heat transfer and nanoscale heat transfer. Successful candidates should possess earned Ph.D.s in the physical sciences and engineering, with strong backgrounds in electromagnetics, optics and photonics, and solid state physics. Excellent written English and oral communication skills are required.

 

 

Visiting Scholar

 

We have openings for visiting graduate students, visiting scholars, or visiting professors who are interested in exploring the research areas of nanoscale optics, plasmonics, metamaterials, metasurfaces, radiation heat transfer and nanoscale heat transfer.

 

 

Applicants should send their full curriculum vitae, along with a description of their background, research interests, publications and contact information for three references via email to Prof. Xiaodong Yang (yangxia@mst.edu).
