• PEESE might also have openings for self-funded M.S. students, who plan to continue graduate study in one of the Ph.D. programs listed above. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of our research, PEESE Ph.D. students typically take a few graduate courses on operations research, artificial intelligence, and/or computer science. In particular, we only recruit PhD students that are taking ORIE 6300 Mathematical Programming I, as well as CHEME/SYSEN 6800 Computational Optimization.
  • Prospective M.Eng. Students: We are very excited to offer research opportunities to M.Eng. students in Chemical Engineering at Cornell. Our M.Eng. projects covers a variety of topics, including data science, energy systems, computational modeling, manufacturing, process/product design, and bio-/pharmaceutical engineering. CBE M.Eng. students interested in PEESE are very welcome to contact Prof. You for M.Eng. projects through CHEME 5650/5999. PEESE does not accept M.Eng. students outside chemical engineering at this time.
  • Postdoctoral Positions: We do not have funding at this time to support any postdoc fellow. Applicants with independent financial support or third-party funding are encouraged to inquire about possible projects. We may sponsor candidates with suitable background and strong publication records to compete for some Cornell internal postdoc fellowships, including ACSF Postdoc Fellowship and Ezra Systems Postdoc Fellowship.
