The Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI) has awarded 10 new Graduate Prize Fellowships to incoming Ph.D. students to support their data-science related research at UC San Diego for the next four years. This influx of data science expertise will boost the research and teaching capabilities for HDSI.
They will work directly with our data science students as teaching assistants for one course, helping strengthen what has become one of the largest data-science education programs in the nation.
The Graduate Prize Fellowships provide substantial financial support to Fellows throughout their four-year award. The awardees are drawn from multiple academic disciplines, in keeping with the multidisciplinary mission of HDSI. Doctoral student appointments will be shared by HDSI and five departments: Bioinformatics and Systems Biology-biomedical informatics track; Computer Science & Engineering (CSE); Mathematics; Cognitive Science; and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE).
