The Simmons Research Lab (SRL) at the University of Florida has openings for graduate students with a BS degree in civil engineering (MS degree preferred) who are interested in pursuing workforce development research. Students must be able to effectively communicate with professionals in the construction industry and in transportation.

Eligibility: Various funding sources are available that would support either U.S. citizen or non-US citizens. Students who will earn a BS degree in civil engineering (MS degree preferred) within the next 18 months (essentially you cannot apply if your graduate date is more than 18 months in the future), are welcome to apply. The earlier you apply, the greater the opportunity you will have to participate in early recruitment events.

If you are interested in applying to pursue a PhD in civil engineering, please send via email ( no more than one page describing 1) what problem you want to address, 2) how that problem is connected to the work of my research group, 3) why the problem is important and 4) how you plan to address the problem. Please also attach your resume, the names and contact information for two professional references and one relevant writing sample. Use 'Graduate Student Interest in SRL' in the subject line.
