About this Event

This virtual session will replace the 3/12 kick off that was cancelled due to COVID-19. This online event will give an overview of Environmental Frontiers Campus RA Positions, which will now be full-time roles during the Summer Quarter. RA Positions will no longer be offered during Spring Quarter. Advance materials and Zoom meeting details will be circulated to RSVPed participants in advance. A recording of the online session will be posted following for anyone who is unable to join live on 3/25.

Environmental Frontiers (EF) is a new initiative bringing together University of Chicago faculty, students, and staff to collaborate around finding innovative ways to build a more sustainable future. EF creates joint research and educational opportunities among these groups focused on the intersection of environmental sustainability and urbanization, with the goal of giving UChicago students a scientific and practical understanding of sustainable urban development. EFCampus is the campus-based component of EF, enabling students to use campus data to explore and enhance aspects of environmental sustainability, with an eye toward broader impact and applicability beyond the campus context.

EFCampus is piloting undergraduate student research opportunities during the Summer Quarter . These will be paid Research Assistant positions analyzing campus building utility data to understand opportunities to increase energy efficiencies.

This online session will provide an overview of EFCampus, how to apply for Research Assistant positions, and anticipated data work under the pilots. 

Note: applications for Research Assistant positions are extended to March 26. Full details can be found via the College Center for Research and Fellowships.
