(subject to availability of funds) 

The School of Information Studies (SOIS) is offering several Research Assistantships (RAships) available to all newly admitted students to the PhD program. These RAships are intended to provide research assistance opportunities for full-time students. Standard SOIS RAships will consist of a 33% appointment. The RAship covers tuition and benefits, and provides a stipend in return for approximately 13 hours of service per week. Appointments will be increased to 50% after the first academic year in the program. Teaching Assistantships (TAships) are available to more senior students in the program. RA/TAships can be renewed for four years pending successful completion of RA/TA assignments and maintaining good academic performance. 

All incoming students admitted to the PhD program are considered. Recipients must be admitted to the program and have full-time doctoral student status. Standard residency requirements apply.
