Research assistant: Optics, nanoscience, or programming
The Yan Lab in the Department of Applied Physical Sciences is looking for undergraduate research assistants starting this spring. Our lab develops new techniques and instruments to trap and manipulate microscopic objects using light (i.e., optical tweezers), and to study new material properties and nanoparticle-cell interactions. We welcome undergraduates who are interested in optics (especially optical physics or spectroscopy), nanoscience, or programming (LabVIEW or MATLAB), and willing to learn and do research in the lab ideally over one semester. The research will be conducted remotely in the spring and physically in the lab when the environment allows. Please contact Dr. Yan if you are interested (with your CV) or need more information.
