작성자 관리자 등록일 2008-09-03 조회 2,500
Position Description
The Nanoscale Energy Transport Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Pittsburgh has two openings for Ph.D. students in the following research areas:

1. Numerical simulation of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale: Experiences in fluctuational
electrodynamics, Green’s function, rigorous coupled-wave analysis, finite-difference timedomain
method, and Monte Carlo simulation are desirable.
2. Experiments on the near-field thermal radiative transfer: Experiences in atomic force
microscopy, near-field optics, and infrared spectroscopy are desirable.

Students, who have a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or Electrical Engineering, are encouraged to apply. Strong background in heat transfer, applied physics, and applied mathematics are preferred. Interested candidates are welcome to contact Dr. Bong Jae Lee (bjl39@pitt.edu). Please send a resume and a brief statement of candidate’s past research background as well as future research interests.

Brief Biography of Professor Bong Jae Lee
Dr. Bong Jae Lee is as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science at the University of Pittsburgh, starting September 2008. He received his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Seoul National University in the Republic of Korea in 2001 and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005 and 2007, respectively. He is the winner of the Georgia Tech Chapter of Sigma Xi Best Ph.D Thesis Award and is the recipient of the Hewlett Packard Best Paper Award (2nd place) in 2006. His research interests include nanoscale energy transport phenomena, light-matter interaction at the nanoscale, plasmonics, and metamaterials. In particular, he is interested in investigating fundamental physics of near-field thermal radiation, tailoring radiative properties of nanostructures, and employing engineered nanostructures to novel energy conversion and sensing devices.
