We seek to engage the best and brightest people who thrive on challenges to
enter our Ph.D. program and help shape the future of research. Our research
mission is to harness the massive scale and complexity of information,
discover the principles and processes to manage it, and leverage
information to enhance human lives. We seek to design information
management solutions that are accessible, useful, usable, and sustainable.
To increase our scientific understanding of the role and impact of
information in all human endeavors, we study problems and develop solutions
for better information design, management, organization, preservation, and
retrieval.

Our school has a strong tradition of fully financially supporting our
doctoral students through a combination of Research Assistantships,
Teaching Assistantships, Fellowships and, in later years, teaching
positions as Assistant Instructors. Our support packages include tuition,
health insurance, and a stipend sufficient to live comfortably in Austin.

Beyond our top-ranked international graduate program, UT Austin is one of
the world's premier research universities and is located in one of the
USA's sunniest and most vibrant cities in which to live and work: Austin,
TX.

According to Forbes magazine, Austin "boasts the strongest expansion in
tech sector employment of any of the nation’s 52 largest metropolitan areas
from 2004 to 2014, 74%, as well as 36% growth in STEM jobs, the
fourth-highest growth rate in the country."
