Research opportunities at the TRC

The UVM Transportation Research Center seeks outstanding graduate and undergraduate students interested in conducting research on critical transportation issues. Paid research opportunities to work with TRC faculty and staff are available for graduate and undergraduate students.

Graduate Research Opportunities

Research assistantships are available for outstanding graduate students who are interested in working with TRC researchers. Most graduate students working with the TRC are enrolled in the Civil and Environmental Engineering MS or PhD program; however, an engineering background is not required. It is often possible to work on TRC supported research while pursuing a graduate degree from another UVM graduate program. Prospective graduate students should contact individual TRC faculty before applying to a graduate program to discuss mutual research interests, programs of study and funding availability. A list of TRC faculty and their bios can be found here. If you are not sure of who to contact or have general questions about TRC research and related graduate programs, please e-mail us.
