Job Description

Job description: Work on a collaborative team of faculty, graduate and undergraduate students on urban public spaces research project

 Students will have the opportunity to provide research assistance for research synthesis on urban public spaces. The project is funded by the William Penn Foundation to evaluate the evidence on the environmental benefits of urban public spaces, and our synthesis will describe the state of the field by delineating what we know and do not know. The research team will write a final report that will target a policy and practitioner audience to substantively inform the future of our urban public spaces.

 The student will assist in synthesizing evidence on environmental costs and benefits associated with public spaces in areas such as air pollution, energy consumption, storm water management, water quality, biodiversity, interest in the environment, and environmental activism.

 Project responsibilities include conducting literature searches, summarizing and evaluating studies on public spaces, developing presentations to disseminate the results of the study, and contributing to the final report. Estimated time commitment is 10 hours per week for 12 weeks (or 120 hours total) beginning in January 2019. The student will be paid $15/hour and will report primarily to Dr. Michelle Kondo at the United States Forest Service, in addition to Dr. Patrick Gurian at Drexel University.

 To apply, please submit a resume and letter of interest that describes your interest in the project and your academic and professional preparation to Dr. Patrick Gurian (plg28@drexel) by February 15, 2019.​ 


Must be a major in Civil/Environmental Engineering, with knowledge of urban air pollution, hydrology, biodiversity, heat island/temperature and energy consumption. Prior experience with literature searches and synthesizing studies either through coursework or independent studies is required.
