- Dr. Onur Tigli has received the prestigious CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF)
for his proposal "Acoustics Lab on a Chip for Comprehensive Biophysical Studies of Tumor Cells: Towards
Personalized Cancer Diagnosis and Therapeutics".
NSF CAREER award is National Science Foundation's most prestigious award in support of junior faculty who exemplify the
role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research
within the context of the mission of their organizations.
We are looking for PhD students in
MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems), VLSI (Very Large Scale Integrated Circuits), and Nanotechnology
areas to pursue their degrees in
Electrical and Computer Engineering program at
University of Miami. They will be conducting research in
Bio MEMS/NANO at our state-of-the-art lab facilities.
The skills required are: 1. Working
experience in MEMS, VLSI, and nanotechnology (nanowire growth, characterization,
nanoparticles, etc.) 2. Hands-on clean-room
experience (photolithography, etching, deposition, microscopy etc.)
3. Experience in using Computer Aided Design (CAD) and
Finite Element Modeling (FEM) software for engineering
4. The candidates should have a Masters degree in
Electrical/Computer Engineering (preferred) or Mechanical
Engineering. Interested candidates with degrees in related majors
are also encouraged to apply. Competitive graduate assistantships
with full tuition waivers are available for qualified students.
Highly motivated undergraduate (junior/senior
level) and master's students who are interested in gaining
cutting-edge research experience in the following topics are also
encouraged to apply.
ZnO Nanowire fabrication, Assembly, FEM Modeling
Optical/Piezo Immunosensors, DNA based sensors, FET sensors
Microfabrication, Microfluidics, Modeling, Characterization
- CMOS Technology
Hybrid CMOS-Nano, Monolithic CMOS-MEMS
- Micro/Nano Fabrication
Focused Ion Beam, CVD, PVD, PMMA, PDMS
- Digital design
Evolvable Hardware, FPGA design, Verilog HDL, Front/Back End ASIC
