Graduate Research Assistantships

We constantly look for applicants with strong mathematical background as PhD students. We expect the applicants to know linear algebra and probability theory. Familiarity with optimization (linear and non-linear programming) and analysis of algorithms is a big plus. Several current projects are described in Research Projects. Each research assistant will receive a competitive stipend plus paid tuition.

Applicants can apply to either the Computer Science department or to the Computer Engineering program within the Electrical Engineering department.
