Rutgers University announces the availability of pre-doctoral 
traineeships in Interdisciplinary Perceptual Science.   The program, 
funded by an NSF IGERT grant, integrates graduate training and research 
in computer modeling and human perception.  The Core Curriculum in 
Perceptual Science includes bootstrapping course work in Computer 
Science and in Psychophysics to ensure accessibility to students from a 
variety of undergraduate majors.   Students participate in 
cross-disciplinary collaborative research in topical areas such as: 
motion; multisensory integration; perception of shape and objects; eye 
movements; attention; search; visual communication; computational 
depiction; human and machine learning; human-computer interaction.  (See 
list of participating faculty below.)

We offer 6 new IGERT traineeships/year.  Students apply for admission to 
one of the participating academic departments:  Psychology (New 
Brunswick or Newark), Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, 
Electrical and Computing Engineering or Anthropology, and should 
indicate their interest in the Perceptual Science program in their 
personal statement.  IGERT traineeships are limited to students who are 
either U.S. citizens or permanent residents.  Support for 
non-citizens/permanent residents is also available in the form of 
university fellowships, graduate assistantships, or teaching 
assistantships.  All aspects of the Perceptual Science program are open 
to interested students, regardless of source of support.

Rutgers University and the NSF-IGERT program are committed to the goal 
of broadening participation of under-represented groups in the sciences 
and in academics. 

We encourage you to bring this program to the attention of your 
undergraduate students.  Students may send inquiries directly to:
