Ph.D. Research Assistantships in 2018

 

We have several Ph.D. research assistantships available in 2018. The list below contains some of our available assistantships. Please note that this is not a complete list of opportunities. Prospective students are welcome to reach out to any individual faculty member or the graduate program director to learn more.

The majority of Ph.D. students are supported as Graduate Research Assistants during their tenure (typically 5 years). These assistantships provide an annual salary of $29,724, and tuition and health insurance is provided for all students.

All applications received prior to January 1, 2018 will be reviewed. In order to increase the chance of an assistantship, applications are encouraged by December 1, 2017.

You can see a presentation on 2018 graduate research oppportunities COMING SOON.
