NREM Teaching Assistantships (TA)

The NREM department offers a limited number of Teaching Assistantships (TA) typically for up to 1 year on a competitive basis that include a stipend and full tuition waiver. An announcement will be made to all current and incoming students towards the end of every semester for TAs for the following semester. Students interested in applying for a TA are encouraged to check with the NREM Graduate Chair or department secretary about the deadlines and procedure for application.


NREM Research Assistantships (RA)

NREM offers research assistantships (RA) to current and incoming students through ongoing funded research projects, which also includes a full tuition waiver. Typically, an RA supports the research activities of a faculty member who is the principal investigator (PI) of a funded project. The project PI is responsible for advertising and interviewing potential candidates, and students should contact the individual faculty member(s) that they are interested in working with about available RA funding.
