Professor John A. Nairn, Wood Science & Engineering
The Department of Wood Science and Engineering is seeking multiple MS or PhD students with an interest in applications to wood and wood-based composite materials. The projects listed here will involve mechanics of wood and composites (with an emphasis on failure properties and interface issues). The research approaches are computer modeling, experimental material science, or a combination of modeling and experiments. Interested students should apply to Wood Science & Engineering at OSU, apply to one of several dual degree options in cooperation with the College of Engineering, or already be a current or accepted OSU graduate student. For details on specific projects, interested students can contact John A. Nairn by email for more information.
Some potential research projects are:
In addition to the requirements for admission to the Graduate School at Oregon State University, qualified applicants should also meet most of the following (when applicable):
The Department of Wood Science and Engineering is a multidisciplinary university program focused on science, technology, engineering, and business practices that help society meet our needs for wood products, and help ensure the global competitiveness of our domestic industry. More information about the department may be found at http://woodscience.oregonstate.edu/.
The research group started in January, 2006. New members will be added soon.
