Northeastern launches nation’s first doctoral program in network science- recruitment begins Fall 2013

from media release:
“As the first uni­ver­sity in the nation to offer this degree, our world-​​leading research pro­gram in net­work sci­ence will allow us to train the next gen­er­a­tion of leaders in this increas­ingly impor­tant field,” said Stephen W. Director, provost and senior vice pres­i­dent for aca­d­emic affairs.

North­eastern will begin recruiting the doc­toral program’s first class of stu­dents this fall. The pro­gram will be housed in and over­seen by the Col­lege of Sci­ence and will be offered through a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort with sev­eral other North­eastern col­leges including the Bouvé Col­lege of Health Sci­ences, the Col­lege of Com­puter and Infor­ma­tion Sci­ence, and the Col­lege of Social Sci­ences and Human­i­ties.

Vespig­nani, Barabási, Lazer, and Mis­love will lead the pro­gram as the ini­tial core fac­ulty. Addi­tion­ally, fac­ulty across the uni­ver­sity with exper­tise in fields ranging from data mining to health sci­ence will round out the program’s offer­ings. The pro­gram will also ini­tiate a renewed hiring effort to attract more world-​​leading net­work scientists.

Maybe they will recruit me one day?

Spread the word.
