Graduate Assistantship Opportunity

Graduate Assistantship Positions

The College of Engineering & The Judith Herb College of Education

The INITIATE program (http://www.utoledo.edu/research/initiate/ ) is seeking doctoral students to work on cyber security, smart vehicles, and educational research within the National Science Foundation-funded grant called STEM + C. The position(s) will be available beginning in the Spring semester of 2019.

 

STEM + C focuses on the integration of computational thinking and computing activities in high school to provide a strong and developmental foundation in computing and computational thinking through the integration of computing in STEM teaching and learning, and/or the applied integration of STEM content in 9-12 computer science education.

 

The grant is anticipated to be funded through Summer 2020 and will cover half time graduate assistantships for both the academic year and summers. Summers are required for anyone accepting the assistantship.

 

Doctoral students will be required to participate in both the educational programming and research components of this program. Money may be available for travel to conferences when presenting research studies related to grant-supported activities. The assistantship covers full time tuition and the college-specific standard stipend for the academic year and summer. Assistantships are awarded contractually for fall/spring and summer separately; renewal is contingent upon availability of funding and student performance on the project.

 

For Engineering students, preference will be given to doctoral students with research backgrounds in cyber security, intelligent transportation systems, software engineering, or machine learning. Students are required to have a strong programming background.

 

For Judith Herb College of Education students, preference will be given to doctoral students who are in mathematics education and high school education. Students in science or technology education or other teacher education backgrounds will also be considered. Preference will also be given to students who have either attended or worked at our partnering school district: Toledo Public Schools.
