We always welcome self-motivated graduate students for Research
Assistant and Associate positions. You could be from
Electrical Engineering, Bioengineering, Materials Science, or a life sciences discipline. Experience in a cleanroom
or in micro-fabrication/MEMS would be a plus. Send your detailed resume
(in PDF format) and all your peer-reviewed publications to Prof. Iqbal
and state your research interests.
Write in the subject line whether you are a Master's or
Doctoral student. Also state if you are already at UTA or

We are very interested in engaging highly motivated Undergraduate students in
our lab. Some of our research can be part of your undergraduate projects/studies.
You can get trained in micro-fabrication,
computer simulation and may work on some cool stuff that has never
seen the light outside our lab. The projects could also be
in circuit design, software development for data
acquisition/analysis, developing microfluidics,
etc. If interested, send your resume to Prof. Iqbal.
Highlight your GPA and previous experiences in
We may also have some semester long
projects for graduate students. You are encouraged to send
information about your length of studies at UTA, your current GPA,
how much of your coursework/credit hours have been transferred from
other institutions, how far are you from graduation, whether your project
will be part of a course you have to take in your department,
prior research experience before UTA and accomplishments, who all
have you worked with while at UTA, what were your research
accomplishments in your research work at UTA, whether you are a MS
student or working towards your Ph.D., complete contact information
of your references (preferably from UTA) and contact
details of your department's graduate advisor/counselor, and whether
you are interested in continuing as a Graduate Research
Assistant/Associate in our lab. Send this information to
Prof. Iqbal to
evaluate possibility of a project. You may be asked for further
information to gauge your suitability for a project.
It would be preferred if you can list all your skills and a 2-3 line
summary proposal of your intended project.
Internships for Non-UTA Students:
If you are not a student at UTA, we can not provide any financial
