!!Kozato Graduate Fellowship in Quantitative Biology

%lfloat text-align=left margin-top=5px margin-right=5px margin-bottom=10px margin-left=5px width=100px% Attach:UCSB_seal1.jpg

The Kozato Fellowship in Quantitative Biology will offer competitive multi-year support comparable to the NSF Graduate Fellowship. The position is to begin in the Fall of 2011. The fellowship will support a student who has an interest in working on an interdisciplinary thesis project investigating a biological system using a combination of mathematical analysis and computational methods. It is envisioned the supported graduate student would have a primary adviser in mathematics, but would also interact closely with theoreticians and experimental biologists on campus at UCSB. The fellowship is funded by a generous donation from Hiro Kozato, a distinguished alumnus of the Department of Mathematics.

For those students interested in mathematics and biology, please see the following page for more information:

Place description of our program
along with important deadlines
and as well as academic expectations
of the program.



Applied mathematics
refers to the branch of mathematics which strives to integrate the
development of core areas of mathematics with the solution of
specific problems arising in applications often in the basic sciences
or engineering.  There are many exciting opportunities to
get involved in applied mathematical research at UCSB. 
Specific areas in which faculty are involved include
the study of complex fluids / soft-condensed matter, computational fluid
dynamics (boundary integral methods / immersed boundary methods),
crystalline solids and liquid crystals, density functional theory,
analysis of non-linear hyperbolic PDE's (?), applied harmonic analysis,
stochastic differential equations.

Brainstorm of ideas to include in the brochure for our component of the program:

* mention what would be good background for our program, but are open to considering all academically strong and motivated applicants.  Anyone in academic good standing with drive and curiosity... (this is part in part to motivate students that we understand and should apply... (you get the basic idea I think).

* mention academic expectations (interact with researchers from other dept.s, interest in applications, computational component, etc...)

* mention qual. exams and student preparation groups (on-line links to qual criteria and materials to outline).

* basic structure of the program 3 years course work, 2nd year qual., then remaining time spent engaged on research interacting with other dept., etc...

* Faculty and students of the applied mathematics group attend campus workshops and seminars and collaborate with a wide range of researchers in other departments.

* Give links to some of our collaborators and seminars on campus out-side math (links to MRL, KITP, CNSI, IGERT, and others...).  Goal is to give a sense that our student participants leverage all UCSB has to offer campus-wide.
