We are looking for PhD students at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. The currently available collaborative projects are funded by the Office of Naval Research with emphases on
1) Nano-mechanics and -materials for nano-manufacturing applications
2) Dynamic behavior of soft biomaterials for blunt injury and wound healing mechanisms
For domestic Ph.D. students, you will be considered for Dean’s Fellowship. The prestigious fellowship provides tuition, health insurance and $30,000 of annual support (Link).
During these projects, the candidates will work with leading material scientists, electrical and mechanical engineers at both ASU as well as US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to overcome critical barriers in the combined theoretical and experimental investigations of complex, multiphysics systems. US citizen or permanent resident candidates will have unique opportunities to visit NRL in Washington, DC and directly interact with NRL research scientists.
Applications will be immediately reviewed until the positions are filled. Interested candidates should submit the items listed below to Prof. Wonmo Kang (email@example.com):
1. A detailed CV including a list of publications
2. A cover letter with a short description of their research experience and interests
3. The names and email addresses of at least three references
The successful candidates will enjoy additional opportunities in Prof. Kang’s lab including (1) opportunities to work at DoD labs, (2) hands-on experience with cutting-edge facilities, and (3) local attractions (including weather) in Phoenix, AZ.
