Title: MS and PhD student positions in Mechanical Engineering : Seoul, Korea

 

Fluid Device Lab at Konkuk University in Korea has available positions for M.S. and Ph.D. students.

 

Our lab investigates fluidic transport processes at the micro- and nano-scales, under the background of mechanical/electrical engineering and the cooperation of other field researchers. These approaches are utilized to discover new functionalities and realize new tools for cost-effective, fast, highly-sensitive, or massively parallel biomedical/biochemical assays.
