A NEW INTERDISCIPLINARY GRADUATE TRAINING PROGRAM
LEARNING AND ACTION IN THE FACE OF UNCERTAINTY:
COGNITIVE, COMPUTATIONAL AND STATISTICAL APPROACHES
Deadline for Applications: January 1, 2000
Brown University is actively recruiting graduate students for a new
NSF-supported Interdisciplinary Graduate Education, Research and
Training (IGERT) program in "Learning and Action in the Face of
Uncertainty: Cognitive, Computational and Statistical Approaches".
The use of probabilistic models and statistical methods has had a
major impact on our understanding of language, vision, action, and
reasoning. This training program provides students with the
opportunity to integrate a detailed study of human or artificial
systems for language acquisition and use, visual processing, action,
and reasoning with appropriate mathematical and computational models.
Students will be enrolled in one of the three participating
departments (Applied Mathematics, Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences,
and Computer Science) and will study an interdisciplinary program of
courses in topics such as statistical estimation, cognitive
processes, linguistics, and computational models. The aim of this
program is to provide promising students with a mix of mathematical,
computational and experimental expertise to carry out
multidisciplinary collaborative research across the disciplines of
Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, and Cognitive Science.
Interested students should apply to the participating department
closest to their area of interest and expertise, and should indicate
their interest in the IGERT training program in their application.
These positions are restricted to US citizens and permanent
residents. Brown University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative
