The Merced nAnomaterials Center for Energy and Sensing (MACES) is looking for undergraduate students to participate in research during the academic year.
Eligible students who meet program requirements will receive fellowship awards each semester. UC Merced undergraduate students in the disciplines of chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering are invited to apply.
The research conducted by the MACES center encompasses two core areas: sensing and energy. We are addressing in-space energy challenges by creating highly efficient, compact and lightweight solar-energy-harvesting devices and developing high-performance energy storage devices and energy conversion devices, as well as reduction interface fricton for energy saving.
We are also addressing the acute need for highly sensitive, robust and compact sensing devices for planetary missions and for human-health monitoring. The research encompasses fundamental investigation and technological exploration.
Program Requirements: 10 hours/week of research activity in MACES faculty lab and once monthly professional development workshops (two hours each) on the dates listed below.
