PhD in computer networking at the University of Washington
The ICTD Research Group at the University of Washington’s Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering (http://ictd.cs.washington.edu/) is seeking qualified students, both from the US and abroad, with an interest in universal internet access and community networking to apply to the PhD program in computer networking. The ICTD group, led by Professors Kurtis Heimerl and Richard Anderson, has long worked on the problems of Universal Internet Access internationally, with deployments and projects in both the rural Philippines (in partnership with the University of the Philippines) and Indonesia (in partnership with Ob Anggen). As our research shifts to wide-area LTE networks and the infrastructure of repair, we want to find more motivated and passionate students with interest and capacity in the space. There is a particular interest in students with personal experience with hard connectivity problems.
If interested, please visit the UWCSE admissions page (https://www.cs.washington.edu/academics/phd). All students admitted to the Allen School Ph.D. program are guaranteed funding for 3 years in the form of a research assistantship, teaching assistantship or fellowship. All or most of the cost of tuition is covered by the assistantship or fellowship. If you have any questions, please direct them to Professor Kurtis Heimerl <email@example.com>.
