今年430日我收到收到一封邮件:


Dear Prof. Zhang,

 

I am an assistant Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (starting in July) and my work is at the interface of nanoelectronics and biology.

 

I plan to visit Peking University on 13th May and would love to meet with you, and discuss potential synergies.

 

Please let me know, if you are available.

 

thanks

Deblina

TEDx talk: Could We Soon Augment Our Brains?

https://deblina-sarkar.mit.edu/


我认识不少MIT的教授,可是这个发信的Deblina我并不认识,不过点开她下面附的TEDx talk的链接,我一下子就兴奋了:就是那个做超低功耗量子晶体管的姑娘啊!2015101日她发表在Nature上的文章(A subthermionic tunnel field-effect transistor with an atomically thin channel,doi:10.1038/nature15387)惊艳了世界,不知道她现在已经去MIT做助理教授了!另外,不知道她还得了这么多的奖:北美最佳博士论文Top3获得者,美国Bright Mind Top 4科学家,印度35岁以下发明天才Top10NIH K99……这每一个奖都是青年人的骄傲啊!Deblina真的是来自印度的创新精灵!

太好了,必须欢迎啊!于是我热情地回信欢迎她来访问做报告。接下来的发展真的是让人瞠目结舌:短短几天之内她以超强超快超aggressive的效率靠email联系了北大跟她可能相关的几乎所有教授,最终给出了一个难以想象的访问计划:

I made a draft schedule for my visit on 13th which is given below. Please let me know if this works for everyone.

10.00-11: meet Prof. XX Dong and travel to Chemistry dept.

11.30-12.30: meet Prof. XX Zou and travel to electrical engg

12.30-1: meet Dr. XX Liu and Dr. XX Huang and visit Prof XX Kang’s group and IMEPKU labs

1-1.30: meet Prof XX Wang

1.30-2: meet Prof Haixia(Alice) Zhang

2-2.30: meet Prof. XX Li

2.30-3: meet Prof. XX Jiao

3-3.20: travel to MSE department

3.20-3.50: meet Prof. XX Cao

4-5: talk

5: discuss with MSE profs

看到这个安排我几乎落下泪来,一个多么拼命的孩子!我给她回信说:

Deblina, I will see you at your talk, donot be too rush for your visit.

好歹给她节约半小时时间可以喘口气吃个简单的午餐,此时,我对这个从未谋面的印度姑娘已经充满了好感和敬意,十分期待跟她的见面。

13日下午的讲座开始前,我在去报告厅的路上遇到了正在跟其他同事谈笑风生的她:

Hi, Deblina!

Hi, you must be Alice, you looks much younger than photo on your website!

What a nice girl!

不得不说她的智商和情商都太高了!

她的讲座真的是Awesome!因为时间更加充分,她比TEDx上讲的还要好,内容更加丰富而且更加有深度,也毫不吝啬地分享了她对未来研究方向的很多设想,提问环节也是十分热烈,因为听众来自不同的院系,她思路清晰、语速极快,对涉及到的不同专业问题都对答如流、切中要害!真好!

结束以后,我带她去参观了校园,一起晚餐,也聊得不亦乐乎,才知道她其实只吃了一个big breakfast!有老师问她:你这个紧张到分钟安排的日程是不是太赶了?她说,我在MIT面试的时候一天不停地跟不同的教授们谈话十多个小时呢!一直都是这么干的!一点没错,就她这次来中国的几天来看,她在北大清华上交等学校访问都是这个紧张的节奏,全程高速运转!这个小个子的印度姑娘,真的让人刮目相看和敬佩!

送走Deblina,我就跟我的学生讲:看看这个印度小姑娘,真的是厉害!她这么聪明能干取得了这么突出的成果,还这么拼命地努力,更值得大家学习的是她这么积极主动去创造机会,这精神太值得学习啦!比你聪明比你优秀的Deblina还这么拼,你还有什么借口不拼?!

今天,Deblina发来邮件,她在MIT Media lab刚刚创建的NCB研究组正在火热超募和同学加盟,这么好的机会,你还不快点行动还在等啥呢?!

最具创新活力的MIT-NCB Lab火热招募天才加盟!

Research Openings in Wireless Sensing, Magnetics and Nanoelectronics at MIT

(Deadline for grad student application: Dec 1st)

MIT著名的创新实验室Media Lab的青年天才科学家--Deblina Sarkar教授(北美最佳博士论文Top3获得者,美国Bright Mind Top 4科学家,印度35岁以下发明天才Top10)正在火热招募新学生和博士后,在纳米-生物-控制论等领域开展跨界探索,欢迎有志于在跨界开展颠覆性创新的同学们抓紧时间申请!

【基本情况】

Multiple positions available for students interested in MS/PhD as well as postdoc position in the new Nano-Cybernetic Biotrek (NCB) (http://www.mit.edu/~profsarkar/) research lab at MIT. NCB aims to fuse nanoelectronics, applied physics, and biology with two major research directions:

  • Develop novel nanoelectronic devices (such as Quantum Devices, Spintronics, Neuromorphic) employing ingenious device physics and smart nano-materials for achieving extreme energy efficiency and scalability;

  • merge such next generation technologies with living-matter creating unique nanomachine-bio hybrid systems, with remote control and wireless communication abilities to achieve unprecedented possibilities for probing/sensing and modulating (for therapeutics) our brain and body.

 

  1. OPENINGS FOR GRAD STUDENTS (deadline Dec 1st)

NCB is seeking students with strong background in either of the following:

  • Electromagnetism, Antennae, RFID, wireless sensing, RF engineering, magnetic resonance

  • magnetic materials and devices, magnetics, Spintronics
