Thinking about going to grad school?
From PhD Comics
Wednesday, November 2nd, at 5 pm in PHSC 1105
the Math Club will host a grad school panel. Maybe you don’t know if grad school is right for you. Or maybe you’re thinking of going to grad school, but aren’t sure if it should be math or something else.
Faculty and grad students from math, computer science, physics, economics, and biostatistics will all be there to talk about post-OU options for people with a math background.
If you’re interested in grad school and want to know where and how to apply, what grad admission committees look for in applicants, what kind of fellowships are available, what being a grad student is like, etc., etc…. then come on by!
The panelists will say a bit about being a grad student in each of their fields, but mostly they are there to answer your questions!
At least you’ll have better luck than Hitler’s attempt to go grad school in philosophy:
Although last Wednesday’s Math Club was the last of the “official 5pm on Wednesdays” Math Club of the semester, there is a great event this
Friday, April 29th at 11:45 am in PHSC 424 (the Math Dept. lounge).
Dr. Zongzhu Lin is a math professor at Kansas State University. For the last two years he has also been a Program Officer in the Math division of the National Science Foundation. He’ll be giving a brief presentation plus a question/answer session on graduate funding opportunities with the NSF. How does an all-expenses-paid fellowship from the NSF sound?
His focus will be on information for undergrads and grads thinking math grad school. But the NSF supports all the sciences, so even if you’re thinking about grad school in physics, chemistry, computer science, biology, etc., you should also stop by.

Do you like math and biology? Did you know you can get a joint BS-Math/MS-Biostatistics degree at OU? Do you even know what biostatisticians do? Fortunately, this
Wednesday, March 9th at 5pm in PHSC 1105
Dr. David Thompson from the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) will speak on the Biostatistics program at OUHSC. He’ll talk about their graduate program (including the joint degree), how it might be of interest to you, and to talk generally about the field of biostatistics and some of the projects they encounter on the OUHSC campus.
If you have an interest in math and/or biology, then this would be a great degree with lots of interesting career options.

Here is a great grad school option from our southern neighbors if you’re interested in Logic and Dynamics. Notice the excellent fellowship they offer!
RTG Graduate Fellowships
Applications are invited for graduate fellowships in the Research Training Group in Logic and Dynamics in the Mathematics Department at the University of North Texas. Fellowships are available for students entering the Mathematics PhD program in Fall 2011. Each fellowship includes at least five years of support consisting of a stipend of $20,000 for the academic year, all tuition and fees, summer support, and money for travel to conferences.

Friend of the blog, Dr. Goodey, forwarded this announcement which may be interesting if you like both math and biology:
Georgetown University: Department of Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Biomathematics
Are you interested in genetics, bioterrorism, international health, bioinformatics, epidemiology or health policy?
Our M.S. program provides integrated training in computational, quantitative, and biomedical sciences to support health-related research performed in academia, government, and industry. Students will not only acquire the quantitative and computational tools that underpin epidemiology and bioinformatics, but also gain substantive exposure to applications of these tools to biological and health sciences. Our program brings together faculty from our Department and from Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) Basic Science and Clinical Departments, many of whom are members of Georgetownʼs Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (LCCC). Graduates with an MS degree in Biostatistics go on to successful and lucrative positions in academic centers, pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies and private consulting firms.
Applications for our Masters of Science Program in Biostatistics are currently open for Fall 2011. Application deadline is June 1st, 2011.
