Data Analysis and Visual Analytics Ph.D. Fellowships The Southeast Regional Visual Analytics Center (http://srvac.uncc.edu) - a partnership between Georgia Tech and UNC Charlotte - is accepting applications for four Data Analysis and Visual Analytics PhD Fellowships, two at UNC Charlotte and two at Georgia Tech. Both universities have significant research programs in these areas, in which fellowship holders will be active participants. The Fellowships provide 2.5 academic years of support with a stipend of $2300 per month; payment of tuition and fees; and a $1500 per year for three years travel allowance to attend relevant conferences. After the fellowship period, students will be supported as Graduate Research Assistants while finishing their Ph.D. Fellowship holders will have two summer internships at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory or other laboratories conducting relevant research. They will have the opportunity to spend a semester at their partner school, either UNC Charlotte or Georgia Tech, to be able to take courses not available at their home shcool and to interact with the many faculty and graduate students at their partner school. The fellowships are provided by a grant from the US Department of Homeland Security, and are available to US Citizens. It is hoped, but not required, that upon graduation, fellowship holders will work at a national laboratory or company in the area of homeland security. Applicants must apply for admission to either Georgia Tech or UNC Charlotte *and* separately apply for the Fellowship.
