Undergraduate researcher wanted for a project investigating new ways to make next generation materials for light emitting devices (LEDs). The Herman lab in chemical engineering is using a continuous flow microwave reactor to synthesize semiconductor nanoparticles called quantum dots, the undergraduate researcher would aid in the synthesis and purification of these materials. If you are interested in a career in Oregon’s growing greentech industry this is a great way to gain experience.
More info on the project can be found in this press release: http://oregonbest.org/commercialization/pacific-light-technologies
Those interested should contact Bob Fitzmorris (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief explanation of their interest and previous experience. Students who have taken, or are currently taking organic chemistry are preferred.
