Opportunities for new graduate students

We are currently looking for a couple of new graduate students to take on one of several new projects in the group, all of which are connected to carbon neutral energy applications or sustainable manufacturing.  Specifically, we have openings available for the following projects:

  • Diffusion in large thermal gradients for nuclear power applications — you can read a little about this under our current projects tab.
  • Understanding the oxidation resistance of hard, protective hafnium diboride coatings (collaboration with Prof. John Abelson)
  • Understanding the role of short range order on hydrogen embrittlement in austenitic steels

All of these projects will involve significant electron microscopy.  Please contact Prof. Krogstad (jakrogst@illinois.edu) directly to set up a meeting to discuss the details of these project and/or express your interest.
