Graduate Research Assistantships
I am able to support a limited number of Ph.D. student advisees with
graduate research assistantships. This support is normally not
available until you have completed (or are near completion of) your
required coursework, so you should make arrangements for any needed
support from other sources early in your program.. It is rare for me
to have sufficient funds for students who are not enrolled in a
Ph.D. program, or for whom I do not serve as advisor or co-advisor
(and the volume of unsolicited requests for such positions makes it
impractical for me to reply to each).
I have appointments in Information Studies, Computer Science, and the
Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computation Program that make it
possible for me to supervise Ph.D. dissertations for students who are
enrolled in any of those programs. For students in other programs, I
can sometimes arrange to serve as a co-advisor.
Graduate Teaching Assistantships
Teaching assistant positions are arranged by each department, and
students should contact their department for information about this.
Occasionally we hire University of Maryland students to help out with
specific research project. When we do, there will be an announcement
on the iSchool discussion list, and I will also post that announcement
on my Web page. If there is no announcement on my Web page, I have
no open positions.
For some reason, an increasing number of undergraduate students from
around the world are sending unsolicited applications for
"internships" that do not exist. I am not able to reply individually to
such inquiries, but I can assure you that those positions that do
not exist really do not exist.
