Research Assistant Positions
There are currently no positions open in my group. If you are interested in being considered for positions that might open up in the future, feel free to email me your information and I will consider you for future positions as they come available. Note that as a general rule, I will only offer RA positions in advance to students already having an MS degree and who are interested in pursuing a PhD.
Teaching Assistant Positions
If you would like to be considered for a TA position, your application must be received in full by January 15th for admission the following Fall. Top students will be guaranteed TA support. In addition to providing a salary, students that are employed either as TAs or RAs will receive in-state tuition rates.
Other support opportunities
For students who are US Citizens, there are two additional opportunities for support. First, if the student is pursuing a PhD, he or she may be recommended for one of two graduate Fellowships sponsored by Sandia National Laboratories. In the 2009-2010 academic year, each of these Fellowships payed $25,000. Alternately, students who apply by the January 15 deadline will be considered for part-time employment with the Physical Sciences Lab, the non-profit research lab run by New Mexico State University.
