Joint and Dual MS Research Assistantships
E-IPER provides opportunities for Joint and Dual MS students to work as research assistants on faculty mentored, individualized environment, energy, and sustainability research. Through this offering, E-IPER aims to encourage and accelerate collaboration among faculty scholars, their labs, and the MS students as emerging practitioners.
Beginning in Spring Quarter 2021, we anticipate awarding 3 Research Assistantships (RAships) annually, each of which will support one project. The funding will include a one-quarter 25% RAship (salary + associated tuition) supporting approximately 10 hours of research work/week.
Research Assistantship Projects
Joint and Dual MS students have the unique opportunity to work with faculty from the School of Earth, School of Engineering, School of Humanities and Sciences, Stanford Law School, Stanford Woods Institute, and Precourt Institute for Energy on specialized projects. Listed are the available RAships for Spring 2021:
Inês Azevedo | Readiness for EV Charging at Deep Adoption
Jeffrey Ball & Tom Heller | The Climate of Infrastructure Project
Sally Benson | Business Models for Multi-use Agriculture Equipment in India
Sally Benson | Pathways to Carbon Neutrality in California
Margot Gerritsen | Toward and Equitable Mobility Future: Understanding Drivers and Barriers
Jon Krosnick | Opportunities for Policy Change to Address Climate Change
Gabrielle Wong-Parodi | Energy Utility Companies' Climate Adaptation Decisions
Based in a faculty member’s research area, this new RAship initiative is intended to leverage the practice-oriented lens of the E-IPER Joint and Dual MS students, and augment their course-based learning with research experiences. This RAship will bring together interested faculty from across Stanford's seven schools with E-IPER MS students on applications of research in actionable, meaningful practice.
With generous support from the Ann and Reid Buckley Fund as well as the Emmett Fund, all research areas of interest to E-IPER students and faculty are eligible for RAships.
