Research Opportunities (招收研究生信息)



Ph.D. Positions (招收博士生12)

Department of Mechanical Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology

(香港科技大学机械工程学系, 微纳多相流动力学与传热实验室)

The mission of our lab is to solve coupled multiphase, multicomponent, optical, electro, mechanical and thermal/fluid dynamic problems posed by the development of nano/microfluidics, sensor and actuators, and biomedical treatments/devices. Ph. D student positions are available from time to time. Candidates are sought in the area of fluid flows, heat/mass transfer, nano/microfluidics, materials, optical sensors, diagnostics, MEMS, and instrumentation.

Potential Topics for Doctoral Dissertation Research under supervision of Prof. H.-H. Qiu

The research topics below are available for incoming graduate students. Please feel free to send an e-mail at for more information.

       Advanced Measurement techniques for Micro/Nano Fluid Flows

       Micro/Nanoscale multiphase and multicomponent flows

       Electro-optical Microsystems

       Biomedical microsystems

       Optical diagnostics for microfluidics

       Silicon-glass based microsensors and actuators

       Electroosmotic pumps and electrophoretic separation

       Detection systems for a micromixer/-reactor 


For the Ph.D. students, we ask: a MSc. (or equivalent) in fluid/thermal engineering or physics/chemistry or material science, precision instrument and optical electronic engineering with a focus on one of the followings: transport and optical diagnostics in multiphase flows; nano/microtechnology/NEMS/MEMS; sensor development; and micro fluid flows and heat transfer; proven affinity with good mastering of the English language (TOEFL>=80, IELTS>=6.0); and good communication skills.


We offer: a dynamic, multidisciplinary and international environment at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. The successful Ph.D. student will be awarded a studentship at HK$13,400 per month.


Interested candidates are invited to apply before March 10, 2011 (For Fall Semester 2011/12) or October 10, 2011 (For Spring Semester 2011/12) to Prof. H.-H. Qiu:, Tel. (852) 23587190, (Webpage:, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology.


All applications for the Ph.D. positions should include an application letter, a detailed CV, a publication list, two recommendation letters and an academic transcript of the B. Sc. and M. Sc. education.
