The University of Georgia’s Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Systems (IRIS) has several funded Graduate Research Assistantships available in the area of nature-based solutions, Engineering With Nature, and natural infrastructure. Graduate students in these positions will conduct both practice-oriented and basic research on NI methods and engineering guidance, tool development, cost and economic analysis, monitoring and adaptive management, and social dimensions of climate resilient infrastructure with an emphasis on integration of natural and conventional systems.

Students will benefit from IRIS’s position as a founding partner of the Network for Engineering With Nature, which offers extensive partnerships across private and public sectors.
