Graduate Assistantships are available on a competitive basis to qualified graduate students in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences. These Assistantships provide an employment opportunity for students to help defray the costs of education and provide work experience within the field. These assistantship positions are also generally accompanied by tuition waiver support. Assistantships may be awarded for Teaching (GTA) or Research (GRA) activities. GRAs are provided by faculty through external grant funds that support the faculty member’s research. The work performed under a GRA may or may not be aligned with the thesis topic of the student, depending on the match between the student’s interest and her/his advisor’s needs. Additional information regarding Graduate Assistantships may be found in the University of North Dakota Graduate Assistant Handbook .
We anticipate having a number of assistantships available for the 2016-2017 school year.
