PhD, MS, and MFA positions in data visualization / large scale data
Northeastern University in Boston, MA, USA

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.

Students interested in graduate studies at Northeastern on data science and
visualization have several degree programs to choose from:
