Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs)
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Daytona Beach, FL) announces the availability of several Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) and some Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) to begin each year for incoming PhD students in the Department of Physical Sciences. We are seeking students interested in research related to processes in the mesosphere/thermosphere system, via numerical modeling and observational data analysis. Students with interest in engineering work related to ground based remote sensing are also welcome. Faculty whose specialize in this area include

Dr. Michael Hickey (Atmospheric Acoustic-Gravity Wave Modeling, mesosphere and thermosphere)
Dr. John Hughes (upper atmosphere and ionosphere physics, ionospheric heating, optical remote sensing)
Dr. Alan Liu (Mesospheric dynamics and composition with lidar, radar & passive optics observation)
Dr. Jonathan Snively (CFD & Atmospheric Acoustic-Gravity Waves, mesosphere and thermosphere)
Dr. Matthew Zettergren (magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling at high latitudes, optical and radar remote sensing)

The assistantships cover full tuition and fees plus an annual stipend of at least $20,000 per year. Applicants must have completed an M.S. in physics or engineering in order to prepare for this program. To submit your application or for any questions, please contact Dr. Michael Hickey at
