We like to invite you for exciting opportunities for our Ph.D. program and research in the Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. We have close to 100 Ph.D. students that form a vibrant cohort group. Our Ph.D. graduates are gainfully employed as faculty at other Universities, in leading positions in Industry and National Laboratories, Think Tanks and some create their own successful start-up companies. We have set up a Ph.D. Internship Program for students to avail of and intern at Industry and other Institutions. Our international network of 35 leading Universities across the globe, through MAGEEP – the McDonnell Academy Global Energy and Environmental Partnership, provide unique collaborative opportunities to work on global challenge problems across the world. In addition to MAGEEP, we have several funded research centers such as the Center for Aerosol Science and Engineering (CASE), Center for Solar Energy and Energy Storage (SEES), Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization (CCCU), Nano Research Facility (NRF), Solar Energy Research Institute for India and US (SERIIUS) and others. The department has a focus on the following broad areas:
1) Environmental engineering science,
2) Energy systems, and
3) Chemical engineering.
There are four cluster areas that support research in these exciting areas, including:
- Aerosol Science & Engineering
- Engineered Aquatic Processes
- Multi-scale Engineering
- Metabolic Engineering & Systems Biology
Our core expertise in these clusters is focused on thematic areas of the energy-environment nexus, advanced materials, and sustainable technologies for public health and international development. Please visit our department website (www.eece.wustl.edu) to learn more about our faculty and research. All admitted students will receive a stipend (~$30K per year) and a full Tuition waiver.
