Prof. Xiaoyu Tang’s group in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University has postdoc and fully funded Ph.D. positions in Fluid Mechanics and Soft Matter. Research in the group focuses experimentally on multiphase flow, microfluidics, and active colloidal systems with broad applications in energy, environment, and healthcare. Selected postdoc candidate is expected to start immediately, and selected PhD candidates are expected to start in Spring/Fall 2024. Stipends for PhD students have been raised recently and are highly competitive. Visiting students/scholars are always welcome.
Individuals with PhD degree from all science and engineering majors, especially Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Physics, are encouraged to apply. Self-motivated candidates with experimental background especially microfluidics are particularly welcome. Selected candidate will develop their own project while mentoring student projects pending completion. Fruitful publication is expected.
Students with Bachelor’s or Master’s degree from all science and engineering majors, especially Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Physics, are encouraged to apply. Self-motivated candidates with a strong foundation are particularly welcome. Research experience in either experiment or simulation and publications are preferred but not required.
Interested candidates should contact Prof. Tang (firstname.lastname@example.org) with anticipated start date, transcripts (for the PhD position), and CV detailing academic and/or research achievements. Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Applicants with good fits will be contacted for an interview.
