The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Ohio University has a funded PhD studentship available in the area of semiconductor optical radiation detectors. This position is open to both US and international students with relevant academic background and an interest in pursuing advanced research in optoelectronics. Funding includes tuition waiver and a stipend of $20,000 a year for three years.
This program will require both advisor-led research and successfully passing required graduate courses. The research component is mainly experimental and will involve working on both semiconductor device fabrication and measurements of device characteristics.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, hard-working and disciplined person with a background in semiconductor science and technology. Extensive knowledge of semiconductors and semiconductor devices is desirable but not essential as further training will be provided through graduate courses in relevant areas. However, a good understanding of basic Physics and some electronics is an essential requirement. Similarly, good mathematical and English writing skills are also needed.
Admission requirements include a good four-year Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering or Physics, together with appropriate GRE and TOEFL scores.
