Doctoral Student Researcher Positions 

The EH Yang Group explores 2D material growth, actively publishing results and establishing collaborations with top-tier research groups around the world. For more info: google "EH Yang Research Group" for our website. We are looking for Ph.D. candidates in the area of nanotechnology and nanomaterials. The candidates will investigate fundamentals, nanofabrication and characterization techniques of 1D and 2D materials and their nanostructures. We are also looking for master’s students who are interested in participating in research opportunities.

Interested individuals should send C.V., official transcript and TOEFL/GRE scores to [email protected] When applying to the graduate program (Department of Mechanical Engineering) at Stevens Institute of Technology, also indicate desire to work with Professor EH Yang.

Master's Student Researcher Position

This unpaid internship is intended for master's students who are interested in pursuing an edge research opportunity. The candidates will get trained on chemical vapor depositions of 2D materials or similar nanomaterials and will contribute to growth, nanofabrication, and electron-optical characterization.


  • Current 1st year master's students

  • No prior experience required; individuals will be trained.

  • Willing to make significant time commitment and actively learn research methods

  • Willing to pursue a Ph.D

Undergraduate Research Positions

Stevens’ undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to participate in research opportunities, sponsored by the institution. Typically, undergraduate researchers participate in summer programs, in which the student focuses on a research project, notably with the option to continue his/her research into the academic year. 

For undergraduate students, there are several research opportunities available through:

Interested individuals may contact Professor Yang ([email protected]) for further information.

Stevens is located across the Hudson River facing the Manhattan skyline and has a vibrant interdisciplinary research environment in nanotechnology.

Expectations and Responsibilities of Graduate Students

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure continued progress of their academic program and thesis research. Students have a responsibility for the following aspects of their program.

Students are expected to entirely devote their time in the lab to perform theoretical and experimental work during workdays (exception: classes and exams).

Students are expected to work on their class homework/projects outside of work hours and in weekends.

Students are expected to maintain the integrity and ethical standards in all aspects of the student’s work, including coursework and research, especially in the tasks of collecting, analyzing, and presenting research data and in writing reports.

Where applicable, students are expected to maintain detailed, organized, and accurate laboratory notebooks and records.  When a student leaves a lab, the notebook and all research data remain the property of the laboratory.

Students are expected to promote collegiality and a welcoming environment in all aspects of the student’s program, ensuring that all are treated with respect.

Students are expected to help maintain a clean and safe laboratory spaces and common spaces.
Where applicable, students are expected to discover and pursue a unique topic of research in order to construct new knowledge and to apply this knowledge to existing problems and issues.
