I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students with research interests in data mining, machine learning and predictive modeling to join my research group in Fall 2018. Requirements are strong analytical skills (e.g. statistics, probability, mathematical modeling) and programming skills in one or more languages (R, Matlab, Python, C++). Desired but not required qualifications are interest and knowledge in healthcare applications and publications (conference proceeding or journal article). An RA/TA position with full scholarship (tuition coverage and stipend) are available. Please send me your CV, samples of publications or other creative work, and transcripts for consideration. Only eligible applicants will be contacted directly and interviewed in person or through Skype (or a similar teleconferencing platform).
