published Dec 14, 2011 12:18pm

The Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at North Carolina State University seeks applicants for two multi-year graduate research assistantships for students wishing to pursue a M.S. or Ph.D. degree focused on Geoscience Education. Applicants should have a strong interest in reformed teaching methods and a B.S. or M.S. degree in a geoscience discipline. Teaching experience at the college level is desired but not required. Assistantships include a 12-month stipend, tuition, fees and health benefits. Successful students will work within the Geoscience Learning Process research group and will have potential roles in the NSF-funded InTeGrate (Interdisciplinary Teaching of Geoscience for a Sustainable Future) project described at http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/index.html.

The Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences (MEAS) is one of the largest interdisciplinary geoscience departments in the nation. Review of applications will begin in January and initial decisions will be made as early as February, 2012. Applications can be submitted online from http://www.ncsu.edu/grad/applygrad.htm. For more information contact Dr. David McConnell, Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Campus Box 8208, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695.
