Opportunities

Our group is actively looking to hire talented and motivated individuals to join and make new discoveries.

Undergraduate: We aim to train the next generation of scientists and engineers starting at the UG level. Hence, opportunities for domestic REU (Research Experience for Undergrads) are available every year (especially in the summer). Please contact us with your CV and transcripts.

Graduate: Multiple MS and PhD positions are available to start from Spring 2022 or Fall 2022. If you’re interested, please apply online (Specialization*: Construction Materials, with thesis) and make sure to indicate your interest to work with Prof. Garg in your online application.

    • *Prospective students may also apply to have a graduate degree in our CEE interdisciplinary programs such as ‘Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure Systems‘ and ‘Energy-Water-Environment Sustainability‘ and list Prof. Garg under faculty interest. 

Postdoc: A opening with an application deadline of Feb 21, 2022 will be announced soon here. Check back this space in a few days. Interested candidates are welcome to send their CV to be kept on file for future considerations.  Externally-funded postdocs are also always welcome to reach out. The contact email for the group is listed below. 

Visitors: Visiting scholars are welcome to contact us with their CV and a research statement. Funding is available for 1 year or 2-year visits. 

Contact Email: All individuals interested in joining the group could contact us via garg-group@illinois.edu.

Note: We receive countless emails every week from prospective grad students, visitors, and postdocs, and hence, replying to each of them is often not feasible. If you’re interested in working with us, your best bet is to submit a formal application and wait.
