Research Fair

The Research Fair is an event where each research group and the teaching faculty who plan to hire graduate assistants give short oral presentations followed by research demonstrations.  Students are given the opportunity to engage in personal interviews with the various research groups or teaching faculty based solely on your interest in working with the groups or teaching faculty.  At the end of the event, the department administration asks you to submit your top five assistantship preferences while simultaneously asking the faculty to submit their top three preferred “hires”.  Job assignments are announced two-three days later.  The hiring tier is funded students and then non-funded students if any assignments are remaining.

Appointments with faculty and/or PI’s will be done via Doodle Polls.  Links will be posted immediately below:
