The Mozur Research Group, founded in 2022, seeks to understand the relationship between a material’s structure on the atomistic and micro-scale and the material functionality. We believe that the development and utilization of new technologies relies on the discovery and understanding of materials.

Our research flow begins with the preparation of technologically relevant materials. Dr. Mozur loves ‘the game of x’, or using small changes in composition to investigate the role of each constituent in the structure. Typically, we then build a robust understanding of the structure using traditional diffraction, neutron scattering and spectroscopy,  and local structure probes. These insights are then correlated to material properties, including but not limited to magnetism, opto-electonic behavior, or thermal properties.

Dr. Mozur is particularly excited about extended inorganic solids with applications in magnetism and renewable energies.

 Graduate Research Positions

Prospective graduate students interested the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering or Materials Science Programs are encouraged to reach out to Eve directly through email. Include a brief description of your research interests and any relevant previous experience. The deadline to apply to these programs is generally in mid December.

Undergraduate Research Positions

Undergraduate students who are enthusiastic about materials research are encouraged to  check out the projects posted on the MURF website ( New positions are usually posted in March with applications due in April.  Generally, no research experience necessary, and preference will be given to students who have taken or are currently taking MTGN211. Structure of Materials or a similar course. Please reach out to Eve with questions!
