What is it? The NSF NRT program is new interdisciplinary graduate education program sponsored by the National Science Foundation. This program will help PhD and Masters students learn how to harness the burgeoning power of data science to understanding the neural foundations of human behavior, and how to apply these skills in industrial and academic settings. The NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is focused on Data-Enabled Science and Engineering (DESE) research.
Who can participate? Any UR graduate student in a discipline related to Computer Science, Data Science, or Brain & Cognitive Science is welcome to apply.
What are the benefits of being a trainee?
In addition, some US PhD students in the departments of Computer Science and Brain & Cognitive Science will receive financial support from the program.
When do I apply? Applications are now being accepted for entrance to program in Fall 2016. The application deadline is July 21, 2016.
