Ph.D. Position in Flexible Sensors

NanoScience Technology Center

Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

University of Central Florida

 

Research Description

The Functional Materials and Devices Laboratory at the University of Central Florida (UCF) has two Ph.D. positions available in Fall 2022, Spring 2023 or Fall 2023. The Ph.D. students will be fully funded through a Fellowship or Graduate Research Assistantship (GRA). The research focus of this lab is to develop nano/micro-sensors based on flexible and smart materials. Example research thrust areas include: (1) biomimetic devices for physiological interfacing; (2) wearable electronics for biosensing and drug delivery; (3) embedded sensors for structural health monitoring; and (4) biosensors for agricultural and environmental monitoring. For more information about the Functional Materials and Devices Laboratory, please visit: https://mae.ucf.edu/FMDL/.

Requirements

An ideal candidate is expected to have an earned B.S. or M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics or a closely related field. Previous experience in nanotechnology, NEMS/MEMS fabrication, experimental and computational structural mechanics, wireless sensors and wearable electronics are preferred but not required.

Apply

Interested individuals should first send an email to Dr. Wen Shen at Wen.Shen@ucf.edu with the subject line “Ph.D. Application” along with a CV/resume. Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
