New Research Opportunity in Physics

Thursday, December 23, 2010

A new research assistantship opportunity for physics graduate students interested in thin film growth and/or x-ray diffraction.

A graduate research assistantship is available in the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics at The University of Tulsa in the research area of experimental condensed matter physics. The project will involve the epitaxial growth of complex oxide thin films and film characterization using synchrotron x-ray scattering techniques. Candidates with experience or strong interest in thin film growth and/or x-ray diffraction are especially encouraged to apply. The research assistant will receive full tuition coverage, health insurance, and a monthly stipend in return for 20 hours of work per week on this project. Preference will be given to applicants to the PhD program in Physics. For questions and additional information about the project, please contact Dr. Alexei Grigoriev alexei-grigoriev@utulsa.edu.

Additional graduate assistantship positions are also available at the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics in the research areas of Condensed Matter Theory, Plasma Physics, Nanotechnology, and Optics.

Application information can be found on the Graduate School website http://www.utulsa.edu/graduate/. You can obtain more information about the Physics faculty's research by visiting the departmental website http://www.physics.utulsa.edu. You are encouraged to contact Dr. George Miller by phone at +1 918-631-3029 or via email gpmiller@utulsa.edu for general admission information, and any of the Physics faculty members for possible research opportunities.

Applicants interested in this opportunity are asked to submit their application materials by the February 1, 2011 assistantship application deadline.

The University of Tulsa is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
