We. Are. EISEn.
We are building an interdisciplinary team of engineers and scientists to understand and elucidate fundamental processes at interfaces to address pressing challenges in sustainable energy engineering. We endeavour to develop essential research, design, and communication skills in our group members towards becoming Canada's next generation of clean energy leaders.
Students and research associates in the EISEn group will obtain valuable hands-on experience in fabricating and characterizing micro-and-nano-scale textures and surfaces and thin films with tunable chemistries. They will also learn state-of-the-art experimental techniques in electrochemistry, interfacial science, wettability, and catalysis. Group members will be encouraged to participate in conferences and competitions, thereby learning the art of disseminating research results to a broader audience.
Interested students and postdocs, please contact Dr. Khan at firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV, research interests described in a brief email, and academic transcripts from all degrees in a single attachment. Please note that due to the large volume of emails only candidates selected for further discussions will be contacted. The EISEn group is committed to enhancing diversity in science and engineering.
Prospective Graduate Students (Masters and Ph.D.)
Masters and Ph.D. students - details on the graduate program at SFU SEE are available here. Interested students should contact Dr. Khan - there is some flexibility around graduate admission deadlines. Funding support is available. This link provides comprehensive information about additional competitive funding opportunities that students can apply to during the course of their graduate studies with my support (NSERC, Vanier, etc)
Prospective Undergraduate Students
SFU undergraduate students are encouraged to apply for opportunities through the SFU co-op program. Prospective undergraduate students from other universities can contact me for both 4 and 8-month opportunities throughout the year. The links below provide additional funding information that is available to undergraduate students:
NSERC USRA: link
MITACs Globalink Internships (available to students from over 13 countries): link
Prospective Postdoctoral Associates and Research Associates
From time to time we will recruit exceptional postdoctoral associates and research associates for projects. Please contact Dr. Khan at email@example.com with your CV, research interests described in a brief email, and academic transcripts from all degrees in a single attachment.
