Just google properly

I am unsure about PostDoc position but I can tell you about PhD position. I was admitted to the graduate program in ECE department at Purdue University after completing my Masters. In order to choose a good Professor to work with, I narrowed my interest to biomedical microdevices in the MEMS and Nanotechnology area. I then narrowed down Professors working in ECE in this area. Then I registered for courses they offered and interacted with them throughout the course. I also secured an A grade in those courses.

Ut was important for me to experience the research done in their labs first hand, so I volunteered to work on existing projects in their labs (without pay) and then figured out if I had the acumen for each individual professor's research. Finally I chose the lab with a good fit for my goals.

I am now a 2nd year PhD student in ECE department working at Birck Nanotechnology Center, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA and my area of work involves Nanomanufacturing of Biosensors and Actuators for Biomedical Applications. I enjoy working in ZBML. 

I sincerely hope all passionate seekers find a good research lab to be a part of. 

All the best. 


Proud of you Tejasvi..keep rocking....

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
