About the Project
The Physics of Surfaces and Interfaces (PSI) research group (www.psi-afm-lab.com) at Clarkson University is looking for a PhD candidate to work under the supervision of Prof. Arzu Çolak. The project lies at the intersection of physics and materials science, and aims to understand the physics of materials at the nanoscale with atomic force microscopy (AFM).
- A bachelor or a master degree in Physics (GPA > 3.0)
- Experience in atomic force microscopy (AFM) is preferred, but not required.
- International applicants are required to provide English proficiency scores. The accepted test with the minimum required scores are : TOEFL (80), IELTS (6.5), PTE (56) and Duolingo Test (115).
- A GRE score of at least 307 (148 V / 159 Q) is recommended.
While this is a Teaching Assistantship, the selected candidate will be expected to participate in the research described above, in additional to instructional support.
The position is an experimental study and aims to characterize the physical properties of materials at the nanoscale with atomic force microscopy.
Clarkson University’s International Center will provide visa support to non-US citizens.
