Positions Available at PetersonLab

The PetersonLab is part of the Solid State Electronics Laboratory of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. PetersonLab's work focuses on new electronics materials and fabrication processes for applications in sensors, electronics, optoelectronics and energy technologies. Prof. Peterson welcomes applications from focused and creative incoming PhD students and potential post-doctoral fellows. Prospective PhD students should apply to the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) PhD program via http://www.rackham.umich.edu/admissions/applying and contact Prof. Peterson via email (blpeters AT umich DOT edu). Potential post-doc fellows with a documented history of excellence in research and publication should contact Prof. Peterson to inquire about openings.

There are also opportunities for African scholars to visit University of Michigan for four to six months, through the University of Michigan's African Presidential Scholars (UMAPS) program. More information is available here: https://ii.umich.edu/asc/umaps.html. Interested faculty from Africa should please contact Prof. Peterson directly to discuss potential collaborations through this program.
