AASERT Phd Student Fellowships

The School of Information Studies at Syracuse University
announces the availability of two
3-year PhD fellowships towards a PhD in Information Transfer.

To be considered for an award, an applicant must be a citizen of
the United States or a native resident of a possession of the
United States. Citizens of another country who have applied for
US citizenship do not meet this requirement.

The Fellowships are made available by funds provided by
Augmentation Awards for Science and Engineering Research
Training (AASERT) Program and are used to support additional
student researchers on ongoing Department of Defense funded
research projects. The project on which the awardees will work
is the DR-LINK Project, an Advanced Research Projects
Administration (ARPA) funded effort in developing innovative
approaches to information retrieval. The DR-LINK Project's
research emphasis is on the use of computational linguistic
analysis and conceptual graph representation for the provision
of high-precision document retrieval.

For each of the three years, the fellowship covers 24 hours of
tuition, student activity and health fees, stipend for 20 hours of
work a week during the academic year, and 40 hours of work a
week during the summer. The students will begin the PhD
program with the Fall, 1993 semester.

Admission to the PhD program according to our established
guidelines is required. The completion of a Syracuse University
Graduate Application, three letters of recommendation and GRE
scores are required. Completed application materials should be
submitted by June 15.

The PhD in Information Transfer at Syracuse University is a
research-oriented program which focuses on the advancement
and dissemination of new knowledge, both basic and applied,
about the design, use, and evaluation of information systems in
all segments of society. The program is interdisciplinary,
bringing together relevant knowledge from information science,
the behavioral sciences, and a range of research methodologies.

Students who are interested in pursuing research in the areas of
information retrieval, natural language processing,
computational linguistics, or knowledge representation are
encouraged to apply.
