Student Jobs and Co-Ops

Graduate Research Assistantships: Several graduate student assistantships within the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences may be available each year to qualified students. These assistantships are funded through grants and/or contracts held by departmental investigators. Most graduate assistantships are based on half-time commitment (20 hours per week) during the school year, and a full time commitment for three months (40 hours per week) during the summer. Activities to be carried out by a research assistant are assigned and monitored by the principal investigator. In order to qualify for the partial tuition payment, students must carry 9 credit hours during the school year and 6 credit hours during the summer. This requirement is reduced after a student has fulfilled all coursework requirements. 

National Weather Service Co-ops: Our staff works closely with the National Weather Service and keeps apprised of what is available. 

Hourly employment is available from time to time on special projects or in the lab.
