Please see the following message sent from, recent UT graduate, Michael Muhlestein regarding a new research position available with the US Army Research and Development Center, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL). A flyer with more details can be found with the link below.
My lab here in New Hampshire is trying to recruit new researchers. We have multiple positions open and ready to be filled, but I wanted to advertise one in particular due to the need for a quick turn-around (the project leads are hoping to have someone hired before February). There is more information on the position in the attached flyer. While the flyer says they are looking for a permanent position, the project leads are also open to hiring someone as an ORISE scholar. The salary range is rather large because they are looking for either an M.S. or a Ph.D., but the compensation is competitive. Since I was confused about this when I came, I should point out that the salary range represents starting salaries, not final career salaries. There is plenty of room for career advancement.
I really like the work and environment here, and I feel that a UT acoustics education is excellent preparation to fit right in. There is both basic and applied work here, and the researchers have considerable flexibility on what they want to pursue. If any students have questions about this position, CRREL, or living in New Hampshire/Vermont (the lab is on the border), I would be happy to answer them.
