MIT PhD Opportunities in Logistics and Supply Chain

MIT Interdisciplinary SCM PhD Study Opportunities

MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (CTL) researchers advise select students in the Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Transportation led by MIT’s Mobility Initiative, a cross-disciplinary graduate program in transportation which provides graduate degrees for students interested in transportation studies and research. 

The Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Transportation provides a structured and follow-on doctoral program for students. The interdepartmental structure of the degree allows students flexibility in developing individually tailored paths of study that cross both disciplinary and departmental lines. The student’s research is performed at, and is supervised by faculty at the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics. Detailed requirements for the program can be found here.

Additionally, The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and The Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) offer PhD research opportunities in Logistics and Supply Chain as a part of their degree programs.

Students are encouraged to apply to the Interdepartmental Program or may apply directly to the CEE or IDSS departments and indicate on their application their interest in pursuing research in Logistics and Supply Chain. Students must apply through either CEE or IDSS and indicate on their application their interest in pursuing research in Logistics and Supply Chain. Students would then develop an interdisciplinary degree proposal with their department committee and submit to the Office of Graduate Education for approval.

Application deadlines to doctoral programs vary by department.
