The Built Environment Research Group is the research group of Dr. Brent Stephens in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology. The group is dedicated to investigating problems and solutions related to energy supply, energy consumption, and energy conservation, natural resource use, indoor and outdoor air pollution, environmental health, and sustainability within the built environment. The Built Environmental Research Group (built-envi.com) works on projects ranging from measuring exposures to indoor air pollution to modeling energy supply and demand.
The Built Environment Research Group in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology is currently accepting applications for a Graduate Research Assistantship position, particularly for students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Civil or Environmental Engineering. Ideal candidates will already hold a M.S. in civil, architectural, environmental, chemical, or mechanical engineering, or another related field; however, students with a B.S. that are interested in directly entering the Ph.D. program will also be considered.
If you are interested, you should submit an application to the Graduate Admissions office at IIT with a note describing your intent to work with the Built Environment Research Group. You may also contact Dr. Stephens separately with any questions prior to submitting your application.
