Teaching and Research Assistantships
Currently, the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences does not offer teaching assistantships. However, several individual faculty frequently hire student research assistants (both undergraduate and graduate) for work on funded grants. Positions will be posted here when available.
This type of assistance from the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences is generally only available to graduate students in the MS in Environmental Sciences Program. Incoming MS students will be automatically considered for program-distributed tuition assistance at the time of admission to the program. Continuing students will be regularly apprised of available aid and positions. Due to sustained recent budget cuts, tuition assistance through the MSES program has been temporarily suspended. All graduate students seeking financial aid other than research assistantships sponsored by individual faculty, should go through the Financial Aid office.
