Join our research group.

When we are able to support undergraduates, graduate students, or postdocs for specific projects, links to those openings will be posted in the categories below. Beyond specific projects, we are always interested in identifying and recruiting exceptional and interested students. Please get in touch with Prof. Huff to discuss those possibilities.

Postdoctoral Researchers

Postdoctoral scholars are exceptional early career researchers who join the research group to pursue one or more ambitious projects suited to a future in a research-focused career. They should have received a Ph.D. in their area of research within the last 3 years and may be seated in either NCSA or NPRE, depending on the topic of their work.

Graduate Research Assistants

Graduate research assistants in ARFC are PhD or masters students enrolled at UofI, typically in the NPRE department. These students can be supported to conduct research that advances a dissertation or thesis project that is in synergy with the mission of the research group as a whole.

Undergraduate Research Assistants

Within ARFC, many projects appropriate for undergraduates require a significant dedication to learning software skills and best practices. Accordingly, we look for undergraduates who are available for at least 10 hours a week. We additionally invite undergraduates to join in our group meetings. In return for this higher level of participation, we will dedicate the time necessary to train you in high-utility computational skills.
