Research Assistantships on faculty-led TRC research projects
Students have been employed on multiple transportation research initiatives across the university. New project may have opportunities for future graduate research assistantships. Faculty researchers and Associates can be contacted directly for information on current and future opportunities.
For more information, contact Glenn McRae.
Graduate Scholar Research Assistantships
One-year (12 month) graduate student research assistantships may be available to full-time UVM graduate students. These assistantships will be posted as they are available. Students may be in any graduate program within UVM’s colleges or schools. Prior transportation-related experience is preferred but is not required. The TRC funded 10 GRAs in the 2013-14 academic year under the following faculty and project topics:
|Britt A. Holmén||School of Engineering||Evaluation of EPA’s Motor Vehicle Emissions Simulator (MOVES) model for tailpipe emissions from hybrid-electric vehicles|
