PhD positionS

Calling all students interested in pursuing doctoral work in systems engineering!

The Department of Civil and Systems Engineering (CaSE) has recently launched a PhD Program in Systems Engineering. The Center for Systems Science and Engineering  (CSSE), housed in CaSE, has already had major impact with the COVID tracking dashboard used around the world. We are seeking highly motivated applicants (either Master’s or exceptional undergraduate students) interested in pursuing doctoral research on grand societal challenges using systems thinking and methods.

Our faculty’s cutting-edge research addresses a range of domains including healthcare, public health, transportation, space, and energy. We are also closely tied to other major centers at Johns Hopkins including the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare, the Institute for Assured Autonomy, the Applied Physics Laboratory, and the Bloomberg School of Public Health. Our multidisciplinary program allows the students to explore topics from different fields including applied math, computer science, operations research, operations management, environmental sciences, and data sciences.

Prospective students should review our website, consult the academic requirements and the application process. Contact either Professors Lauren Gardner (l.gardner@jhu.edu), Kimia Ghobadi (kimia@jhu.edu), Gregory Falco (falco@jhu.edu), or Tak Igusa (tigusa1@jhu.edu) for more information.

post-doc position
Applications are invited for a full-time postdoctoral position at the Department of Civil Engineering and the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University under the supervision of Associate Professor Lauren Gardner. The applicant will be expected to undertake and develop research on the topic of spatial epidemiology, with a focus on the development of models to infer outbreak risk factors, predict outbreaks, and optimize resource allocation for outbreak mitigation. Candidates should have expertise in one or more of the following areas: network modelling, optimization, machine learning, statistical modelling, and data visualization, with previous experience working on epidemiological applications.
