Summer Program in Materials Chemistry
Students who have been accepted into the Chemistry Ph. D. program during the 2011-2012 academic year, and are interested in Materials Chemistry, are invited to apply for the 2012 Summer Graduate Program in Materials Chemistry. This exciting, new 10-week program, which begins at the end of June and runs through mid-September, 2012, includes:
- Two 5-week rotations in the labs of participating faculty members of the student’s choice
- 10-week experimental training course on how to use various materials characterization facilities including transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), various surface characterization techniques, high resolution photographic facility, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), static and dynamic laser light scattering, static and dynamic mechanical analyzers (DMA), rheometry, etc.
- A short training course on scientific animation software and illustration
- A seminar series in which participating faculty present their research
- Financial support will be provided
How to apply: interested students who have been accepted into the Ph. D. program should indicate their desire to participate in an e-mail message to one of the directors of the program: Zhibin Guan (email@example.com) or Aaron Esser-Khan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
