The Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering (CArE) department at the Missouri University of Science and Technology is pleased to announce two PhD positions and a competition for two PhD fellowships. PhD positions are available in the areas of 1) indoor air pollution with a focus on aerosol interactions with low-volatility organics and the influence on human exposure and, 2) phytoforensics with a focus on using vapor uptake in plants to improve vapor intrusion risk assessment in buildings.

In addition, welcome applicants for 2 department-wide PhD fellowships for students interested in any of the department’s areas of research expertise. In Environmental Engineering, specialties include indoor air pollution chemistry and controls, metals and mine waste remediation, sustainable waste water treatment systems, advanced biogeotechnology, environmental sensing, phytoremediation, obesigens and sustainable economic growth. Please see our website for more information on the graduate program and research projects: care.mst.edu.

Fellowships include a full tuition scholarship and stipend; US applicants are also eligible to be considered for an additional Chancellor’s fellowship.
