Ph.D. students in core BIOE faculty labs are funded for the first 2 rotations by the department and thereafter by the student’s PI as a Research Assistant (RA), assuming satisfactory progress toward the degree.
PhD students in adjunct BIOE faculty labs are funded by the adjunct faculty member, including rotations. Continuing funding for students in good academic standing who choose adjunct faculty as the dissertation adviser is based on the current funding policy of the adjunct faculty member’s department.
Ph.D. students receive a monthly salary, tuition coverage, and insurance benefits (medical/dental/vision). All students are responsible for minimal quarterly fees.
