Applicants who wish to pursue a graduate degree in the Physics Department at Virginia Tech must hold the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree (B.A. or B.S.) from an institution of recognized standing.
Letters of Recommendation
Three letters of recommendation should be submitted, preferably through the online application system, via email directly from your references to minimize loss and delay (see How to apply).
During the online application process you need to write a short essay about your personal goals and your reasons for choosing to come to graduate school.
The Graduate School requires your complete academic record (transcripts from all colleges you have attended). The minimum GPA for admission is 3.0. The Graduate School calculates your GPA based on your last 60 undergraduate credit hours. Exceptions may be made for students who have also earned significantly higher GPAs in graduate programs (minimum graduate GPA of 3.4, minimum 15 credit hours).
The following guidelines apply to undergraduate programs outside the U.S.:
India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal: bachelor's degree in engineering, master's degree in all other fields
Students who are unsure of the U.S. equivalency of their degree(s) should consult a reputable credential evaluation service. ALL applicants for admission to the graduate program are required to take the GRE general and Physics tests. International students whose first language is not English are also required to take the TOEFL test.

Fuel Cells and Solid State Chemistry Division at Risø DTU is seeking a
PhD student to develop and process new types of oxide thermoelectric
materials for use in conversion of heat into electricity.
Thermoelectric power conversion is a promising technology for waste heat
recovery in a broad variety of applications, e.g. transportation,
building and industry. A thermoelectric device works by converting a
certain temperature difference into an electric potential to generate
You will be part of a large project which aim to develop and demonstrate
high-temperature efficient thermoelectric oxide modules integrated in a
This will take place at the international front line in collaboration
between Risø DTU and four leading laboratories in Denmark, Japan and the
US, while industry participation ensures strong links to both
technology providers and end-users.
A major challenge in thermoelectric materials development is to
manipulate the structure and physical properties in order to improve
thermoelectric power, electrical conductivity and simultaneously reduce
thermal conductivity. The project is focussed on the development of
novel thermoelectric oxide materials (especially p-type),
characterisation techniques of thermoelectric materials and the
integration of these materials in a thermoelectric device for high
