Assistantships are available to well-qualified students. To be considered for teaching assistantships, research assistantships or fellowships, you must also provide additional information directly to the Department of Physics.

Teaching Assistantships

Teaching assistants work up to 20 hours per week carrying out instructional duties in our undergraduate laboratories and recitations, as well as the physics tutoring center. Currently, stipends are $1300/month for the 9-month academic year, along with a tuition waiver. In addition, summer employment may be available.

Research Assistantships

Research assistantships which provide stipends and tuition are usually available to graduate students from those faculty members who have external grant or contract support in various physics subfields such as acoustics, condensed matter/materials physics, computational physics or signal processing. Stipends and awards are determined by the individual faculty members.
