    We're are very excited to announce our new support for Doctoral Fellowships in Complex Systems & Data Science from CA Technologies. CA Technologies, a global software firm, has made a gift of $300,000 to the University of Vermont to establish and fund doctoral fellowships in complex systems and data science. The fellowships will provide a competitive tuition and stipend package for up to two Ph.D. students per year for a minimum of three years. Preference will be given to women and candidates that are underrepresented in STEM. The UVM PhD in Complex Systems & Data Science is now accepting applications. CA Technology Fellows will be chosen from the PhD in Complex Systems & Data Science applicants.

    Come to beautiful Burlington Vermont and work in a highly-collaborative, fun, and dynamic research environment. The Vermont Complex Systems Center is a postdisciplinary team of faculty, researchers, and students working at the University of Vermont's College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences on real-world, data-rich, and meaningful complex systems problems of all kinds. This doctoral fellowships provides a unique opportunity to work alongside leading academic researchers and industry

    Potential Project areas for PhD Fellowship:

    * Ethical and Explainable AI
    * Algorithmic Fairness
    * Analysis on diversity in the tech industry

    We are currently accepting applications for the 2019 CA Technologies Doctoral Fellowships in Complex Systems & Data Science. Expected start date is Spring/Fall 2019.

    Eligibility Requirements:

    * A Master's Degree
    * Knowledge of data science and computational tools
    * Ability to work independently
    * Intellectual curiosity and interest in working in a highly-collaborative complex systems science environment

    The University of Vermont is an equal opportunity employer, and women, veterans, and members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants are welcome from any region, there are no associated citizenship requirements.

  • The Quantitative and Evolutionary STEM Training (QuEST) Program

    My Image

    QuEST provides doctoral students with the skills, knowledge and competencies needed to solve environmental and global health problems in an ever-changing workforce and research environment. The UVM NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program is an innovative and evidence-based model for transforming STEM graduate education training. Emerging infectious diseases, antibiotic and pesticide resistance, reduced crop yields caused by climate extremes and shifts, and loss of biodiversity affect environmental and global health and food security. In each case, identification of successful solutions to these global challenges requires a fundamental knowledge of evolutionary principles. QuEST trains these problem-solvers.

    You can find some of our faculty on the leadership team and participating faculty of the QuEST program, along with more info at:

Things about the University of Vermont and Burlington and Vermont (also awesome):

My Image

The University of Vermont (UVM), established in 1791, is a comprehensive research university with a current enrollment of 12,000+ undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. The scientific and academic environments in CEMS, and throughout UVM, are dynamic, highly collaborative, and multi-disciplinary. UVM has state of the art core facilities, including the Vermont Advanced Computing Center and the Advanced Genome Technologies Core, and offers generous benefits packages, including health, dental, retirement contributions, and tuition remission.

The University is located in beautiful Burlington, Vermont, about 90 miles south of Montreal. Burlington is consistently ranked as one of the best small cities in America for quality of living, and features year-round outdoor recreation and cultural events. Greater Burlington has a population of approximately 150,000 and enjoys a panoramic setting on Lake Champlain, bordered by the Adirondack and Green Mountains.

The University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and actively encourages applications from women, veterans, and people from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. To that end, candidates must provide a diversity impact statement as part of the application detailing how they will further the diversity of CEMS through their teaching, research, and/or service at UVM.
