Fellowship in Mathematics Education Ed.D Program Available

We have several doctoral assistantship opportunities available to full time students at Montclair State University in the Mathematics Education Ed.D. program for 2013-2014. Our program is intended for students interested in various facets (curricular, pedagogical, psychological, philosophical, etc.) of mathematics education. In addition to taking coursework, our students work actively with doctoral faculty to refine their research interests throughout their course of study. Recent graduates of the program have secured employment at four-year universities as mathematics educators, been promoted to leadership positions in their school districts, and have pursued research affiliated with institutes.

The doctoral assistantships would involve 9 credits of coursework each semester and 20 hours per week of work on a research project under faculty supervision. It is expected that students with an assistantship not hold any other employment. The renewable appointments are made for one academic year September 1st through June 30th. Doctoral assistants receive a $15,000 stipend and a tuition waiver for up to 24 credits for research assistantships and $20,000 stipend (no tuition waiver) for teaching assistantships. Students would need to apply formally to the program and indicate that they are interested in the doctoral assistantship. Once they have been admitted, we will conduct phone or in-person interviews to determine suitability for the assistantship. We are currently accepting applications for full-time and part-time studies (though part-time students are not eligible for assistantship) for the Fall semester.
