NSF Funds for Graduate Student Attendance at Isaac Newton Institute Workshops

created 12  Nov  2007

The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at Cambridge, U.K., is hosting a six-month research program on "Statistical Methods for Complex, High-Dimensional Data" from January through June, 2008. The program is attracting some of the leading researchers in statistics, computer science, and computational biology. See for more details on the program and the participants.

As part of that program there will be a workshop on "High Dimensional Statistics in Biology" from March 31 through April 4, and a closing workhop on "Future Directions in High-Dimensional Data Analysis" from June 23-27. The National Science Foundation has provided funds to enable ten senior graduate students at U.S. institutions to attend one of those workshops.

Awards will be determined by a committee consisting of Sara van de Geer (chair), David Banks, Peter Bickel, and Ann Lee. The deadline for receiving applications is January 7, 2008. Interested students should send an application packet that contains:

  1. A letter of recommendation from their advisor or department chair (that letter should indicate the applicant's gender and minority status).
  2. The curriculum vitae of the applicant.
  3. If the applicant would like to submit a poster for possible presentation at the workshop, please include a title and abstract.
  4. An indication of which workshop the applicant would like to attend (this will not be used for selection).

All applications should be sent electronically to both Sara van de Geer ( and David Banks (
