About the Project

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the West Virginia University (WVU) anticipates filling one Ph.D. graduate research position to investigate the fabrication and testing of novel electronic ceramics using a 3D printing technology. The project will be in direct collaboration with researchers at the US Department of Energy. This appointment requires general knowledge of ceramic processing and properties. Since 3D printing technologies require a combination of materials and mechanical/controls technologies, a candidate with additional knowledge in basic programming and controls would also be beneficial (but not required). Projects will require the candidate to work both independently and within a multidisciplinary team of engineers and scientists.

The position will start the Summer 2020 semester (May 15, 2020); therefore, review of all applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

WVU is a comprehensive land grant institution with over 29,959 students in Morgantown, West Virginia, USA. WVU has been recently ranked as one of the R1-Doctoral Universities in the US. This indicates that WVU is among a select group of universities in the US showing the highest research activity as described by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.The MAE department has thirty-three faculty, offering B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and M.S. and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering.

Funding Notes

The project is funded through the US Department of Energy for 3 years starting in May 15, 2020.
