Vision and Learning in Humans and Machines IGERT Program

Department of Computer Science and Engineering
University of California, San Diego

The Vision and Learning IGERT program is pleased to announce that  
predoctoral training fellowships are available for incoming Ph.D.  
students and existing UCSD Ph.D. students.  Prospective Ph.D.  
students must apply to a home department concurrently with applying  
for this fellowship.

The fellowships are supported by the National Science Foundation's  
IGERT program (Integrative Graduate Education and Research  
Traineeship) and provide an annual stipend of $30,000 plus the  
payment of tuition and fees. The fellowship is for a twelve-month  
period and renewable for an additional year.  NSF requires that  
candidates be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S.

The Vision and Learning IGERT program is for students who have an  
interdisciplinary interest in the areas of human vision, computer  
vision, human learning, and machine learning.  Our goal is to train a  
new generation of scientists and engineers who are as versed in the  
mathematical and physical foundations of computer vision and  
computational learning as they are in the biological and  
psychological basis of natural vision and learning.

Candidates from a wide range of backgrounds are invited to apply,  
including, but not limited to, Computer Science and Engineering,  
Cognitive Science, Psychology and Neuroscience.

We currently have nineteen fellows and 23 faculty affiliated with the  
program, representing numerous academic departments and research  
institutes, both on and off campus.

Participating Faculty include:

Virginia de Sa, Cognitive Science (PI)
Geoff Boynton, Salk Institute (Co-PI)
Gary Cottrell, Computer Science and Engineering (Co-PI)
Karen Dobkins, Psychology (Co-PI)
David Kriegman, Computer Science and Engineering (Co-PI)
