Graduate Research Assistantships

 

There are Graduate Research Assistantship opportunities for Ph.D. students who are interested in performance-based earthquake engineering. Interested students should send a cover letter stating qualifications, relevant experience and research interests, resume or CV, and a copy of their transcripts to Dr. Yue Li (yueli@mtu.edu). Highly motivated individual with an earned master’s degree and strong academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

 

The civil engineering graduate program at MTU is nationally ranked in the top 50 programs in the U.S. according to the News & World Report: America's Best Graduate Schools.

 

Undergraduate research opportunities in Earthquake Engineering

 

Undergraduate research opportunities in earthquake engineering. Some desired (not required) skills include exposure to steel design, and/or timber structure design. Applicants should demonstrate a high level of academic performance (generally GPA = 3.0 or above).  Funding for the program comes directly from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Participants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. 

 

Interested students should send a CV and copy of transcript to Dr. Yue Li (yueli@mtu.edu).
