Undergraduate Research Opportunity

Hi Undergraduates, 

I'm Enbo Zhao, a graduate student from Dr. Gleb Yushin's group in the MSE department. I'm looking for undergraduate assistants who're interested in energy storage and battery research. 

Our group focus on electrochemistry-related nano-structured materials. I'm currently working on supercapacitors based on nano-carbon/metal oxides electrode materials. We will start from synthesizing electrode materials and proceed to electrochemical tests then. Therefore, the students will basically gain the skill of how to assemble electric devices from the very initial materials in our group. You will also receive 3 credits/semester (weekly working hour must be more than 9 hours) (credits are of MSE 2699/4699, not CHEM ones) letter-graded by Dr. Yushin based on your performance in lab. I am looking for students that are conscientious, hard-working, curious and aggressive. Their GPAs are expected to be no less than 3.5, but not absolutely. After all, a lab is the place to practice theories from books. Dr. Yushin is very nice and smart and our group will be a great place to enrich your experiences. Please email me your resume if  interested in the opportunity
