Job Institution: 
North Carolina State University
Job Description: 

A graduate research assistant position is available in the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at North Carolina State University. The student will have the opportunity to work on local to global modeling and explore the connections between air pollution, climate, and environmental policy. Potential projects include studying the effects of wildland fires on air pollution, assessing the impacts of climate policies on air quality and health, developing computational methods for environmental modeling, and evaluating air pollution mitigation strategies in Latin America. Additional information is available here: https://fgarciam.wordpress.ncsu.edu/prospective-students/

At NC State, students will be part of one of the largest civil and environmental engineering departments in the U.S. and a vibrant research community. NC State is also a great place to undertake air pollution research. Students will have opportunities to interact with many faculty members and researchers working on air quality and environmental modeling across different academic departments and institutions. The Triangle region offers excellent research and career-related resources for air pollution engineers. In addition, Raleigh is a great place to live.

Financial support for graduate students covers tuition and salary while they complete their degrees. Graduate applications should be submitted to the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering, and students can indicate a preference for the Environmental, Water Resources, and Coastal Engineering or Computing and Systems programs (http://www.ce.ncsu.edu/admission/). Students interested in applying are encouraged to contact me directly (f_garcia@ncsu.edu) to discuss research possibilities.
