The Hicks research group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is looking for new PhD students to start in the Fall 2023 semester! Research topics will focus on the environmental impacts and sustainability implications of emerging technologies. The selected student(s) will use tools such as life cycle assessment, agent based modeling, techno economic analysis, etc. Experience in at least one of these tools is desirable although not required. Potential topics of research may include sustainable chemical production, resource recovery from waste, emerging modes of transportation, and other topics around emerging technologies. Students will ideally have an undergraduate degree in engineering or a similar STEM field. Some of the projects do require students to be US citizens based on the funding, although not all projects have that requirement. Students will work both independently and collaboratively in a team setting. For more information contact Dr. Andrea Hicks at email@example.com.
