PhD, MS, and MFA positions in data visualization / large scale data management[edit]

Northeastern University in Boston, MA, USA[edit]

Northeastern University’s College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS) has a growing research focus in data science, in particular data visualization and large scale data management.

The DATA Lab focuses on research problems in data management, data mining and machine learning with particular emphasis on scalability of algorithms to large data.

The Visualization Lab focuses on understanding human perception and cognition, as well as designing visualization and interaction techniques for exploring complex data.

Our growing labs have eight open and funded PhD positions focused on data storytelling; analytic provenance; tree and graph/network visualization; scalable approaches for managing uncertain, inconsistent, distributed and network data; cybersecurity and defense geospatial network visualization; visualization for healthcare; multidimensional data visualization; and visualization perception and cognition. We have a rich tradition of working on meaningful problems in collaboration with civic, business, and global partners. Our warm, supportive community of researchers eagerly seeks women and minority students to promote diversity.

We are part of a strong team of 63 CCIS faculty with several related groups in areas such as network science, personal health informatics, cybersecurity, information retrieval, probabilistic AI, applied data science, distributed machine learning, NLP, and theory. The college is expanding rapidly and is now highly ranked among top computer science schools in terms of publications at selective venues.
