Graduate Assistant Position for Fall 2020

At least one opening is expected for a graduate assistant starting August 2020, working under the direction of Dr. Pence. Graduate students receive tuition remission and an academic year stipend. Summer salary support is available. Students applying to any graduate program in the School of Health Studies may be eligible for this position, but preference is given to students enrolling in the M.S. in Nutrition Science or the M.S. in Exercise Sport and Movement Science.


A PhD program is currently undergoing the state approval process and is expected to be available to interested students in the future, and coursework completed in the M.S. programs will contribute toward coursework requirements for the PhD.

Interested students are urged to contact Dr. Pence prior to application to discuss this position.
