Project Description: 

Hello everyone. My name is Josh Vincent. I am a PhD student studying the atomic properties of clean energy materials (you can learn more about my group's research here: Starting November 12th, 2019, our lab has research position – we are seeking a motivated student to process atomic-resolution images of a clean energy material in action. This is a highly collaborative project and will be an extremely impressive mark on your resume if you put in the effort. We especially encourage women and students of color to apply for the position.

Research assistants will be expected to spend an average of at least 10 hours per week on the project. This is a major requirement of the position. Please do not apply to this position if you are unable to work on the project for an average of 10 hours per week.

Responsibilities for this project include aligning atomic-resolution images, possessing general timeliness and communication skills, reporting on progress to graduate student mentor (me) and faculty advisor (Dr. Peter Crozier), and periodically presenting progress to research group at weekly group meetings.

If this project interests you, please email me with your statement of interest at Previous research experience is not required. Please include an unofficial transcript and resume in your email. Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
