The School of Communication & Information (SC&I) at Rutgers University 
invites applications from talented and energetic prospective students 
wanting to help shape the future of research in Information Retrieval, 
Social Media, and related areas. Rutgers is one of the premier research 
universities in the US and is located very close to New York City.

SC&I PhD program:
iSchool concentration of the PhD program:

We have multiple openings to fully support PhD students for research 
focusing on information retrieval/seeking, social media, and their 
intersection. Specifically, Prof. Nick Belkin and Prof. Chirag Shah are 
looking for new PhD students to work with them on their newly funded NSF 
project on "Characterizing and Evaluating Whole Session Interactive 
Information Retrieval” ( The funding 
includes a stipend of at least $26,000, full waiver of tuition and fees, 
health benefits and travel support.

The deadline for application with a consideration for financial 
assistant is January 15th (apply earlier if possible).

Finally, know that we have a fairly centralized application process, 
which means we do not get to make any decisions about whether or not to 
accept a given student -- it is a much more holistic evaluation of each 
applicant's overall promise done by the graduate school and the PhD 
faculty at SC&I.

That said, if you are applying with a particular interest in information 
retrieval/seeking or social media, please 1) mention our names in your 
statement of interest, and 2) send us a brief email with a link to your 
CV so we can keep an eye out for your application and put a good word in 
for you. We receive *many* such emails so unfortunately cannot reply to 
all, but trust we'll receive it if you send it.
