Interdisciplinary Graduate Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences

The Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) supports an interdisciplinary training program for Brandeis Ph.D. students, carried out in partnership with the New England Center for Complex Systems (NECSI).

The program's goal is to create a group of mathematical scientists with the computational skills, intellectual flexibility and global perspective needed to attack pressing problems in pure science, applied science and public policy that require a mathematically sophisticated, interdisciplinary approach.

IGERT is an NSF-wide program intended to meet the challenges of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers with the interdisciplinary background, deep knowledge in a chosen discipline, and the technical, professional, and personal skills needed for the career demands of the future.

The program is intended to catalyze a cultural change in graduate education by establishing innovative new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries.
