The WSE-APL Research Assistantship is designed to increase and enhance collaborations between APL (The Applied Physics Laboratory) and WSE through doctoral education. WSE-APL Research Assistants will be paid a stipend for the academic year ($30,000 for the 2013-2014 AY) and will receive health insurance and full tuition for nominally 5 years, pending satisfactory academic and research progress as well as the availability of funding.
WSE-APL Research Assistants are expected to spend the first three or four semesters in residence on the Homewood campus. After that period, Research Assistants are expected to be working at APL. APL will identify and provide work opportunities related to the students’ degree programs during the summer following the first academic year and for the third or fourth semester (as applicable) to the completion of their doctoral programs.
APL has initiated a companion program to encourage APL staff to enter the WSE PhD program.
