PhD student positions Electronic Materials for Gas /ChemicalSensing
The Atoms-to-System Lab at City University of Hong Kong ,Department of Materials Science and
Engineering ,is looking for PhD students ( "immediate"Aug /Sep2020 entry )towork on electronic nanomaterials for gas sensing .The Lab is directed by Dr .Derek Ho ,Associate Professor ,a graduate from the University of Toronto .The Lab's core strength is in the synthesis and application of novel electronic materials to devices ,mainly for the sensing fields .
The Lab is well equipped with materials synthesis ,characterization ,device fabrication ,and integration facilities .Specifically ,we have capabilities synthesis ( e.g.CVD ,PLD ,sputtering ,hydrothermal ,soft chemistry routes ),characterization ( e.g.SEM ,TEM ,XRD ,XPS ,Raman ,FTIR ),device fabrication ,( e.g.micro-plotter ,programmable laser ,electro-spinners ),and various testing platforms ( e.g.mechanical /tensiletester ,semiconductor parameter analyzer ,gas sensing with environmental control ,electrochemical /impedanceanalyzer ).English is the main medium of research supervision .
The applicant must have strong expertise in materials chemistry and have journal publications in one of the areas :
gas sensors ( usingelectronic nanomaterials only )
chemical and environmental sensors
Applicants without prior gas sensor publications but with an exceptionally strong materials background and are interested in gas sensing properties /applicationsmay also apply .Applicants should consult our website ( www.atomstosystems .com)for English test scores and state clearly in email .
Please submit your cover letter /email,CV ,in English ,and first-author publications in PDF format .
Complete applications will be considered with priority .
