The Hangbo Zhao research group of the Department of Aeronautics and Mechanical Engineering of the University of Southern California (University of Southern California) mainly researches the applications of micro-nano processing, flexible electronics, multifunctional materials and structures in the fields of sensing, energy, and medical treatment. For details, see the laboratory homepage : Https://sites.usc.edu/zhaogroup/ . Students with related backgrounds in electronics, mechanics, mechanics, materials, physics, etc. are welcome to apply for the PhD program and join the research group. The deadline for applications for the PhD program in the Department of Aeronautics and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California is December 15 this year. For specific application requirements, please refer to https://viterbigradadmission.usc.edu/doctoral/how-to-apply-phd/ . This year, GRE is not required due to the epidemic. Undergraduate courses require TOEFL or IELTS in domestic schools (no minimum score requirement). Admitted students will be provided with a full scholarship and enroll in the fall of 2021. Excellent applicants can also get new fellowship. Interested students are welcome to contact Dr. Hangbo Zhao via email [email protected] before applying , and attach the CV.
The laboratory also recruits postdoctoral fellows in the field of flexible electronics, starting in the first half of 2021 (the specific time can be discussed). At least one research experience in the following directions is required: micro-nano processing, circuit design, wireless communication, biomedical engineering. Interested students/scholars are welcome to contact Dr. Hangbo Zhao. Please attach CV, cover letter and representative academic articles to the contact email.
