Research Assistantships (RA)

Research Assistantships are made available by individual professors to students who have decided on their field of research. Most departmental RA appointments are made for an annual (12 months) period. The typical Physics Department RA rates are based on a 52% appointment for non-dissertators and 59% for dissertators. Please see the funding guide from the Graduate School for further information about current rates.

Both in-state and out-of-state tuition will be waived for research assistants holding combined graduate assistant appointments of one-third time or greater. However, all students must still pay the segregated fees.

Applicants who wish to be considered for an RA appointment should contact the faculty directly.
