    To whom it may concern,

    I am coaching a team of three high school students who attend high
    schools in New York City.  They are hoping to enter an international engineering
    competition that they have started to work on called the Conrad Challenge.

    https://www.conradchallenge.org/

    They have been working on brainstorming ideas to come up with  unique
    technology-related projects and have some ideas.  For the competition the
    students do not actually physically make the product, they have to propose a
    conceptual product and eventually develop a business plan around the product.
       The are very interested in the application of thermoelectric material to
    generate usable energy especially in cars and or using glass.  But they are open

    to any ideas and opinions.


    I am a retired high school science teacher and wanted to know if there was
    someone who I can talk to in your organization that may be able to identify
    an engineer(s) who may be willing to help me mentor and prepare the students.
       Or just someone to answer some questions from your organization.

    Right now we are in need of mentoring help as soon as possible.

    Any assistance that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    With regards,

    Richard Kurtz
    Science Teacher
    Long Island, NY

    A new postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Applied Physics, Tohoku University (Sendai, Japan).  The project aims to achieve the lowest possible lattice thermal conductivity in higher manganese silicide-based and Fe-based intermetallic systems via careful tuning of nano/micro-structures.  The project involves experimental studies on sample preparation, crystal structure analyses, transport property measurements and SEM/TEM observations as well as computations of electronic structures and machine learning.
