Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

This Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) award supports an interdisciplinary training program for Ph.D. students at Brandeis University, carried out in partnership with the New England Center for Complex Systems (NECSI).

The goal is to create a group of mathematical scientists with the computational skills, intellectual flexibility, and global perspective needed to attack pressing problems in pure science, applied science, and public policy that require a mathematically sophisticated, interdisciplinary approach.

The IGERT program includes: interdisciplinary reading and working groups; interdisciplinary coursework; intensive summer institutes; an IGERT seminar series consisting of seminars by IGERT students and by visiting faculty; and the opportunity for internships at the International Center for the Theoretical Sciences in Bangalore, India.

There are opportunities for students to learn communication with science students and with the public via the Brandeis Science Posse program, and the Acton Discovery Center.
