We periodically have openings for talented undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral scholars.  We welcome applications from students with backgrounds in physics, electrical engineering, materials science, or a related discipline.  Work in our lab incorporates optical and electrical measurements, microwave electronics, nanofabrication and materials characterization, data acquisition and analysis, and theoretical modelling.  Some experience with these topics as well as exposure to quantum physics is desirable but not required – a desire to learn and a willingness to get your hands dirty in the lab are mandatory.  

  • Undergraduate and graduate students currently at Penn:

                    Please email Prof. Bassett to schedule a meeting, including a copy of your CV.

  • Prospective graduate students:
Through the graduate group structure at Penn, students in our group can pursue a PhD in various disciplines, including Electrical & Systems Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, and Physics.  Official application procedures are available on the relevant department webpages.
  • Postdoctoral scholars:
Email applications should include a cover letter, CV, and the names and email addresses of three references.
