“What’s truly innovative is the interplay of material crystal symmetry with chemical and physical properties of material systems under extreme conditions”


Undergraduate

   Undergraduate students are encouraged to join our research team regardless of the stage in their degree. All the key skills to be successful in the lab will be taught in the lab. Undergraduates will be paired with a graduate student mentor and will receive credit through EMS199. In addition, outstanding sophomores are eligible to apply for the Honors Program. This will allow them to graduate while completing an honors thesis. If interested email Assistant Prof. Scott J. McCormack!


Masters and Ph.D.

   Masters and Ph.D. students interested in joining the lab are encouraged to review the new projects on offer and email Assistant Prof. Scott J. McCormack. If they have their own project in mind, they are encouraged to write a 3-5 page proposal. The proposal should include (i) research scope (ii) scientific significance, (iii) literature review, (iv) research plan and (v) equipment list. The McCormack Lab has access to equipment in the Peter A. Rock Lab and AMCaT facilities.


Postdocs

   The lab will not be hiring Postdocs in 2020. Please come back and see if postdoc positions will be available in 2021.

   If interested in working in the McCormack lab, email Assistant Prof. Scott J. McCormack and include a CV and a 3-5 page proposal. The proposal should include (i) research scope (ii) scientific significance, (iii) literature review, (iv) research plan and (v) equipment list. The McCormack Lab has access to equipment in the Peter A. Rock Lab and AMCaT facilities.


Outreach

  There is more than one way to get involved with the McCormack lab. The Lab is very passionate about communicating materials science and interacting with the broader community. The lab is working to design posters and short videos to communicate science in a fun and interesting way. In addition, we will be sending interested participants to schools and community colleges to advocate for materials science. If you are a student or postdoc and are interested in communicating materials science, please email Assistant Prof. Scott J. McCormack and include a CV.
