announces up to 6 assistantships for PhD studies in 2004-05, in the
form of Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) and Graduate Teaching
Assistantships (GTAs).  These assistantships are for incoming students
studying towards the PhD degree in Computer Science.  The Department
offers fields of study in both traditional and interdisciplinary areas
such as bioinformatics and ecological modeling.  Our faculty is
involved in the forefront of research in knowledge and data
engineering (such as data mining, database systems, pattern
recognition, and knowledge-based systems), software engineering and
verification (including programming languages), and computational
sciences (comprising computational biology, discrete modeling, and
numerical methods).

Our faculty in Computer Science participates in various
interdisciplinary research activities involving on-campus entities
such as the UVM College of Medicine (, the UVM
Bioinformatics Core
( and the Gund
Institute for Ecological Economics ( We
encourage applicants who are interested in and have a strong
background in interdisciplinary studies. *Up to 3 (interdisciplinary)
GRAs are specially designated for PhD students who will be involved in
interdisciplinary areas.*


The successful applicants must possess a Bachelor's degree and show
satisfactory test scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
general section. International applicants must submit a TOEFL test
