Description:

I'm writing to you in my role as the Director of a pre-doctoral training program here atCarnegie Mellon to describe a graduate training program that will be of interest to anystudents interested in the Education Sciences. I have asked our current gradstudents to suggest names of people who might be interested applying to ourprogram, or who might know of someone who would be.

The Program in Interdisciplinary Educational Research (PIER) is a thriving pre-doctoral Training Grant established at CMU that is now in its 6th year. Our programprovides students with a solid basis for a career in rigorous educational research.Eligibility for a PIER fellowship requires U.S. citizenship or permanent residency,commitment to educational research, and admission to a departmental PhD programat CMU. Our current PIER fellows are in CMU's departments of Psychology,Statistics, Philosophy, Human-Computer Interaction, Machine Learning, andComputer Science. Our program -- described more fully at the PIER web site:http://www.cmu.edu/pier/ -- is one of several currently funded by the Institute ofEducation Sciences.

Each of the participating departments in our program recruits their grad students viathe normal departmental graduate admissions process. Then, if students are abovethreshold for their departmental admits, and have applied to PIER, they areconsidered for entry into our program by the PIER steering committee.

Although Carnegie Mellon has a strong reputation for research in the core disciplinesthat participate in PIER, our long term interest in applied instructional problems hasonly recently become visible as a coherent program - partly due to our PIER programand partly due to our central role in the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center.
