Funding / Research Assistantships
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.
Graduate Scholar Research Assistantships
A limited number of 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. Each GRA position will identify critical skills and interests required. Prior transportation-related experience is preferred but is not necessarily required.
Undergraduate Research Assistantships
The TRC has occasionally been able to provide assistantships for undergraduates to work on specific initiatives with faculty.
Information and openings for student positions at the TRC can be found on the UVM Student Employment Office website.
