PhD Position in Nanomaterials Science at the University of Vermont

Fred Sansoz's picture

An excellent student with research expertise and interest in molecular dynamics simulation and theory of mechanical and/or thermal transport properties in nanomaterials such as nanowires, bulk nanotwinned metals and graphene, is sought to fill a new PhD opening in my group starting in Fall 2012. Interested students should send me a detailed CV with a description of past research achievements and the names of references to Also please return the following form in order to determine whether you should continue with a more formal application: Pre-application.

The student's expectations are to conduct the research, to present the results in high-impact journal articles and at national conferences, to pursue graduate studies to successfully earn a doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering, and to participate in some teaching activities for the UVM Mechanical Engineering program (e.g. homework grading, help in teaching laboratories, supervision of undergraduate research, etc.).

The UVM Mechanical Engineering graduate program is a small, but active program which is focused on a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative research environment. The size of the program enables the students to have close interactions with the rest of the faculty, and to regularly participate in the life of the program via weekly graduate student seminars and invited speaker presentations. Another asset of the program is that the University is ideally located in northern New-England on the shore of Lake Champlain and near the Green Mountains, which offer many good and healthy opportunities for outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, scuba diving, etc.
