Graduate Fellowships in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Science

The Center for Theoretical & Mathematical Sciences (CTMS) is pleased to invite applications from Duke Graduate students for a unique interdisciplinary fellowship in Applied Mathematics or Theoretical Science. Fellowships will provide support (stipend and tuition remission) for Fall 2010 and Spring 2011. Two fellowships will be awarded at this time.

The purpose of these fellowships is to support graduate students whose research interests bridge those of faculty advisors in two different disciplines. Applicants may request support for a project for which traditional support is not available, or for a more typical thesis-directed project. Applicants must be PhD students.

*The critical requirement for the fellowship is that the project establish a link between advisors in different academic departments, one or more of whom will provide mathematical or theoretical expertise and training. It is generally expected that one of the involved supervisors is in a department in Arts & Sciences.

 Each application requires a cv, a description of the student’s project or research program, and letters of commitment of intellectual support for the specific research program from two faculty members under whose guidance the research and/or training will be performed. No other fellowship, RA-ship or TA support may be held concurrent with this award.*

Deadline for applications is May 15, 2010 with award announcements on June 1, 2010 for fellowship support to begin on September 1, 2010. Please apply at Academic Jobs Online Faculty members may upload letters of commitment directly to the site. For questions, please contact Liz Labriola, (919) 684-0881.
