The Physics Department has about 105 Teaching Assistant (TA) positions for support of incoming and continuing Ph.D. seeking graduate students. New students typically receive a commitment for five years of funding as a TA, GRA (Graduate Research Assistant), or Fellow, contingent upon adequate progress toward completing the degree.

First-year TA positions can be augmented with one of the department's endowed fellowships, Dean’s Strategic Fellowships, and Provost’s Graduate Excellence Fellowships are available for some students.
