We are actively recruiting highly-motivated and talented postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students interested in nanophotonics, low-dimensional semiconductors, and quantum optics. Creativity, problem-solving skills, and enjoying hands-on experiments are important. Our group is multidisciplinary and we welcome students from Physics, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Applied Physics, Materials Science or related fields.
E-mail your CV, the name of two references, and your research interests to Prof. Maiken H. Mikkelsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prospective graduate students:
Complete the graduate application process through the Duke graduate school here, for a degree in Physics or Electrical & Computer Engineering. In your application, make sure to indicate your interest in the group of Prof. Maiken H. Mikkelsen.
If you are already admitted to a Duke graduate program, e-mail your CV to Prof. Maiken H. Mikkelsen at email@example.com to set up a meeting.
Prof. Maiken H. Mikkelsen is jointly appointed in the Department of Electrial & Computer Engineering and the Department of Physics, and can serve as the primary Ph.D. advisor in both departments.
Prospective undergraduate students:
Duke undergraduate students in the Pratt School of Engineering and the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences are always welcome to participate in our research program. Undergraduate students can obtain class credit for independent study in Electrical & Computer Engineering (see: http://ece.duke.edu/undergrad/independent-study) or Physics (see: http://www.phy.duke.edu/independent-study). We also encourage Duke undergraduate students to join our lab as Pratt Fellows, work-study students, or research volenteers. If you are interested in learning more about the possibilities, e-mail your CV to Prof. Maiken H. Mikkelsen at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a meeting.
Prospective visiting researchers:
We welcome highly-motivated visiting researchers and scholars with external funding to join our group and are also happy to provide support letters to apply for such funding. Unfortunately, we are unable at this time to offer opportunities for visiting researchers without external funding. For more information, e-mail your CV, the name of two references, and your research interests to Prof. Maiken H. Mikkelsen at email@example.com.
