Low-Temperature Heat Utilization with Membrane-Based Technology

We are sorry, this position has been filled.

The water-energy-environment group offers opportunities for extensive research experience. Undergraduates will be involved in all aspect of research: from literature review to hands-on in the lab to data analysis to research communication. Students will initially work with senior researchers but progressively gain ownership of their own projects. The objective of the research project is to develop a membrane-based technology to convert low-temperature heat to useful mechanical work or electricity. Student researcher will be involved in assembling the experimental setup and performing the experiments for low-grade heat utilization. Students committed to research are encouraged to apply.
