The Advanced Manufacturing and Energy Lab (AMEL) at the University of Notre Dame directed by Prof. Yanliang Zhang have openings for undergraduate research assistants. The research at AMEL focuses on additive and nano manufacturing for functional devices, thermal science and thermoelectric energy conversion, and sustainable energy and sensor systems. The successful candidate will be a key part of an interdisciplinary team working on cutting edge research using world-class research facilities and resources.
At AMEL, we integrate an “Atomic to System Engineering” approach to close the gap between basic research and system applications in order to change the world we are living in. Prof. Zhang is a recipient of the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award. Zhang’s research has been sponsored by competitive funding awards from U.S. Department of Energy and National Science Foundation, and he has directed several multi-institutional research projects with total funding exceeding $12 million. Dr. Zhang has established broad collaborations with industry and national labs through his prior industry and academic careers. The students at AMEL often have opportunities to work with a wide range of both internal and external collaborators. In addition, Dr. Zhang’s students have won prestigious fellowship from U.S. National Science Foundation and Department of Energy, and competitive awards from international conferences.
