NSF Grant for Graduate Training Program

John Mohr (and several campus colleagues) have been awarded a five-year grant to establish an ...interdisciplinary graduate training program in Network Science and Big Data. The National Science Foundation's Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program supports graduate education that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries and promotes diversity. The UCSB program will bring together faculty and students from seven departments to offer comprehensive graduate training in analyzing the structure and dynamics of networks in an era of "Big Data."
