Graduate Teaching and Research Assistantships in Nuclear Engineering are available. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute invites applications for teaching and research assistantships leading to PhD degrees in nuclear engineering and science.
As the oldest engineering school in the U.S., RPI has a long history in nuclear engineering education and its top ranked nuclear engineering program covers nuclear fission and fusion engineering, electron accelerator physics and neutron physics, multiphase flow and reactor safety analysis, nuclear materials and fuel cycle, homeland security, and health/medical physics.
Rensselaer launched its plan for NE research in the late 1950s when the Atomic Energy Commission funded a project to construct a linear electron accelerator in 1958.
The NE Department was officially formed in 1960 and is one of the oldest such programs in the U.S.
The construction of the accelerator facility was completed in 1961 and the facility would soon be named after Professor Gaerttner who was instrumental in establishing NE at Rensselaer and who served as NE’s first departmental head. Within a few years, the NE Department at Rensselaer awarded its first PhD degrees and then B.S. degrees.
