    PhD Fellowships in Chemistry
    University of Massachusetts – Lowell, USA
    The Department of Chemistry at University of Massachusetts Lowell is offering two PhD Scholarships (3-5 years) to perform graduate studies in Chemistry under the supervision of Professor D. Christodouleas.

     The broad topic of the interdisciplinary research performed at Christodouleas group is “New Technologies for Low-cost, in-Field Chemical and Biochemical Analysis”. The successful candidates will be enrolled in the PhD program that starts on September 1st 2017.
    Project titles:
    1. Paper-like materials for novel applications. We are searching for skilled graduates (chemists, engineers, material science graduates etc.) who wish to fabricate new paper-like materials, characterize their properties, and test their performance as thermoelectric materials or electrodes in bioanalytical and catalytic systems.
    2. Rapid detection of disease biomarkers and other compounds using paper devices. We are searching for skilled graduates (chemists, biologists, bioengineers etc.) who wish to develop novel analytical methodologies for the low-cost and rapid detection of disease biomarkers (i.e., infectious diseases, heart attack biomarkers, electrolytes etc.) using low cost materials such as paper, metal wires etc.

    Stipend that can cover living expenses is provided. A waiver of tuition and other fees is also granted.
    Application Material:
    1. Full Curriculum Vitae (CV), including research publications and names of three referees
    2. Electronic copies of research publications if available
    TOEFL scores >80 and GRE scores >310 are necessary for the enrollment on the PhD program but can be provided in a later stage.
    Applications should be submitted via email to Prof. Christodouleas by the 25th of May 2017 (Email: Dionysios_Christodouleas@uml.edu). Applications will be reviewed upon receipt. Late applications may be considered if the positions are still vacant.
