My research group is currently looking for one or two highly motivated undergraduate researchers to assist research projects in NDT lab in civil engineering.  We develop and use advanced ultrasonic sensing technologies to identify defects and characterize damage in steel and concrete structures.

Current research projects in the NDT lab are sponsored by Department of Energy, Nebraska Department of Transportation, and industry partners. Our research has been featured on Nebraska Today http://news.unl.edu/free-tags/jinying-zhu/.

One immediate position is to assist inspection of a 3-ft thick steel-concrete wall in nuclear power plants using ultrasonic methods.  The undergraduate researcher will assist a PhD student to build mockup specimens and collect data using ultrasonic instruments.
