REU Application Process

PhD Positions Spring 2019

There are two PhD positions available in Molecular Science and Engineering Laboratory. Our group is involved in developing advanced Monte Carlo/molecular dynamics algorithms and force fields, and application of electronic structure calculations for rational design of catalysts, optoelectronic materials, dye sensitized solar cells, and molecular gels. Research/Teaching Assistantships will cover full tuition and provide competitive stipend. There is significant flexibility in developing a research program that suits student's interests and career aspirations. Overall, we are looking for bright and motivated students interested in pursuing research that leads to meeting our energy needs in a sustainable manner.
