Apte Research Group

Graduate & postdoctoral positions

Positions are available for motivated doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows with outstanding preparation.

Doctoral students in our group undertake field measurements, analyze large datasets, and build statistical mathematical models to better understand and mitigate human exposures to air pollution and their health effects.

A background in environmental science or engineering — especially in environmental, civil, chemical, mechanical, or electrical engineering — is preferred. Otherwise, a rigorous quantitative training with a degree in the physical, mathematical and/or environmental scicences is required. Prior experiences in one or more of the following areas are of key interest: data analysis; field and/or lab air quality measurements; GIS and spatial statistics, programming and mathematical modeling; and design of electronic and/or mechanical hardware systems.

Our group works hard, is highly collaborative, and has a good sense of fun. We share an overarching motivation to conduct policy-relevant science and engineering that can help address compelling challenges. Through our work, we aim to provide the technical knowledge that enables more effective and informed decisions about the environment and public health. If our group sounds like a good fit for you, please contact Dr. Apte.
