Doctoral Research Opportunity

We invite applications to the Ph.D. Program in Design and Planning in the College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado for research on some aspect of children or youth and the built or natural environment. Applicants should have a strong interest in the physical environment as a context for behavior, development and intervention. A degree in planning, design or allied discipline is preferred but not required. We welcome applications from countries in the North as well as the South.

Contingent on approval, the program will provide funding, including tuition, to a qualified applicant, who will be expected to work 20 hours per week as a Research Assistant or a Teaching Assistant. Support will continue in subsequent years, pending satisfactory progress through the program.

The successful applicant will be affiliated with and work in the Children, Youth and Environments (CYE) Center for Research and Design. The CYE Center includes faculty from planning, the design professions and cognate areas, as well as about one dozen PhD students from various backgrounds.
