Scholarship:  Full benefits
Degree: PhD
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines:  12/15/2022

Scholarship Description:

Dr. Zhenglu Li will join the USC School of Engineering as an Assistant Professor in January 2023. Dr. Li received his undergraduate degree in physics from Fudan University in 2012 and his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 2019, under the supervision of Steven G. Louie, and continued his postdoctoral research at the Berkeley Louie Group. Faculty Profile: https://chems.usc.edu/directory/faculty/profile/?lname=Li&fname=Zhenglu
