Research Positions

Ph.D Candidate Positions   


NYC seen from Stevens

We are looking for Ph.D candidates in the area of nanotechnology. The candidates will investigate fundamentals, nanofabrication and characterization techniques of 1) 1D and 2D atomic layers and their nanostructures for sensing and energy applications; 2) tunable wetting of conjugated polymers for microfluidics.

There are several opportunities for graduate students, including: 

For undegraduate students, there are several summer research opportunities available through:

Stevens Institute is located across the Hudson River facing Manhattan skylines and has a vibrant interdisciplinary research environment in nanotechnology (

Interested individuals should apply to the graduate program (Department of Mechanical Engineering) at Stevens Institute of Technology and indicate their desire to work with Prof. Yang.

Postdoctoral Scholar Position  


We are inviting applications for postdoctoral scholar positions in the area of graphene optoelectronics and microfluidics. Applicants should have a recent Ph.D in closely related fields with extensive hands-on experience with a broad range of technologies including design, modeling, nanofabrication and characterization. Strong nanofabrication experience is required. Prior experience with graphene and carbon nanotubes or micofluidcs (devices and materials) is highly preferred. Furthermore, knowledge in material physics of graphene is required. Familiarity with characterization equipment such as SEM, XRD, AFM and Raman spectroscopy is also required.

The postdoctoral scholar will work with Ph.D students in Mechanical Engineering Department, and will be responsible for leading the development of micro- and nano-scale devices for optoelectronis and  microfluidics. The efforts may include contribution to design, nanofabrication and characterization of devices, and theoretical analysis of experimental results; participation in the preparation of scientific proposals, and in authorship of technical papers for publication in top ranked journals.

The appointment is contingent upon evidence of completion of the Ph.D. The postdoctoral scholar position is awarded initially for a 1 year period, and may be renewed in 1 year increments for additional years. Interested individuals should send C.V., bibliography, a statement of career interest, and a list of three references (and contacts) to [email protected].
