The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UC Irvine invites applicants for an assistant specialist position to work on preparation and analysis of chemical degradation products from ionizing radiation using the UCI TRIGA reactor. The applicant must have experience in handling and working with open sources of radioactive material, preparation of samples for irradiation, post irradiation analysis including metal-ion extraction and complexation, calculations of irradiation yield and dosimetry. Use and function of radiation detectors is also required.
The department receives a large volume of graduate applications each year and the selection process is extremely competitive. Minimum requirements are as follows:
The general portion of the GRE is required for all applicants. UCI does not require a minimum score on the GRE.
As Henry Samueli School of Engineering alumni, you are part of an exceptional technological community that continues to develop new traditions and welcome individuals worldwide. The School is in an exciting growth spurt, developing innovative advancements each year that help promote UC Irvine as an interdisciplinary, world-class research university.
Global warming is a potent instigator of deadly heat, with research from University of California, Irvine this month finding the probability of a heatwave killing in excess of 100 people in India has doubled due to a 0.5C increase in temperature over the past 50 years.
[UCI Professor] Alon Gorodetsky and others write, “Effective thermal management is critical for the operation of many modern technologies, such as electronic circuits, smart clothing, and building environment control systems. By leveraging the static infrared-reflecting design of the space blanket and drawing inspiration from the dynamic color-changing ability of squid skin, we have developed a composite material with tunable thermoregulatory properties.”
The growth of biomedical engineering at UCI has been rapid, beginning with the formation of the Center for Biomedical Engineering in 1998. The center was funded by a generous $3-million development award from the Whitaker Foundation. In 2002, three major milestones were achieved including the formation of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, two undergraduate degree programs, and the expansion of the graduate program leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biomedical engineering.
