Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) Seeks PhD Candidates on Grand Societal Challenges Using Systems Thinking and Methods

November 13, 2020

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 ([email protected]), Kimia Ghobadi ([email protected]), Gregory Falco ([email protected]), or Tak Igusa ([email protected]) for more information.
