  Information for Prospective Graduate Students

Our research group is currently seeking a student interested in pursuring a Ph.D. in Networked Systems or a Ph.D. in Computer Science and conducting research on interconnection arrangements between Internet service providers, transit providers, content providers, and content distribution networks. Applicants should be interested in research that combines Internet architecture with concepts from economics, including profit maximization, optimization, and game theory. Applicants should should have an exceptional background and interest in applying probability models to analysis and simulation. The research will related to, but not the same as, our prior work on ISP Service Tiers and Data Caps and on Net Neutrality.

Interested students should email Scott Jordan (sjordan at uci dot edu), and should mention "Internet interconnection" in the email subject.

Applicants should apply to the Networked Systems Program or to the Department of Computer Science by December 15.

Networked Systems: The Networked Systems Program grants a M.S. and/or Ph.D. in Networked Systems. Students in the Networked Systems program typically take core courses in networks, breadth courses selected from technical courses (including distributed systems, algorithms, data structures, operating systems, databases, random processes, and linear systems) and management and applications of technology (including educational technology, management of information technology, and social impact), and concentration courses selected from a long list including courses on networks, performance, middleware, communications, and operations research. Apply directly to the Networked Systems Program.

Computer Science: The Department of Computer Science grants a M.S. and/or Ph.D. in Computer Science. Students in Computer Science typically take courses in networks, algorithms, databases, and other computer science areas. Apply directly to the Department of Computer Science.
