The Systems Fellows Program supports graduate students who want to participate in the convergence of knowledge and expertise from diverse disciplines to identify, formulate and address a complex system problem. This approach requires faculty and students to explore research questions at the intersection of their respective fields, conduct joint research projects and develop methodologies that can be used to re-integrate knowledge in pursuit of a new science of systems.

Examples include (but by no means are limited to): research projects in developing a technology that also investigate the effects, reception and implications of the technology on humans, society and social interactions; or studying the advancement of secure communication while explicitly addressing the policy implications.

The program is meant to support high-caliber graduate students whose research is focused on complex systems problems and facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration between faculty members with different expertise in “systems”. Applicants submit a two-page project summary, a brief management plan from each advisor, and CVs for themselves and their advisors. Stipend and tuition can be provided for up to three years. Systems Fellows Program can be used in conjunction with other fellowships/assistantships. For more information, contact Boshra Afra (afra@purdue.edu).

Eligibility Requirements:

• The student’s research must be related to addressing a systems problem or advancing systems science.
• The primary home of the student is in his or her home college, and is co-supervised by a faculty from another college.
• The student nominee must have completed at least one year of his/her graduate research program.
• Assistantship recipients are required to submit an annual report outlining their progress and showcasing the relevance of their research to systems thinking/science
• Systems Fellows will be required to contribute to the Collaboratory’s activities (for example, assisting with seminars and courses, mentoring, course coordination)
