The Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of South Carolina invites applicants with background in fluid mechanics and/or micro/nanofluidics and optical measurement to apply for a Ph. D. student (or Postdoctoral fellow) in laboratory studies.

We offer our students financial support. Our laboratory focuses on Micro/Nanofluidic devices, sensor, Lab-on-a-Chip, Optical measurement, Fluorescence, Fluid mechanics, turbulence and mixing for life science applications, Bioreactor for tissue engineering. We have a state-of-the-art laboratory.

The position will involve planning, executing and analyzing laboratory experiments on thermofluid, flow instability, vortex, turbulence structures, mixing in shear layers and wakes, or nano/microfluidics, active and passive flow control, electrokinetics, LIF and PIV measurements, optical diagnostics, data acquisition and analysis, and their applications in life science depending on the candidate's background.

Candidates should have a MS in one of the following fields: physics, physical and analytical chemistry, mechanics, engineering or related with strong emphasis in experimental and theoretical research. Ideally the position will start at the coming spring semester (fall semester is also acceptable).

To apply, please email your resume to: wanggu@engr.sc.edu Dr. Guiren Wang, Assistant Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering & Biomedical Engineering Program University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC 29208, USA; Tel: (803)777-8013.
