CDS Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The CDS (Center for Data Science) Postdoctoral Fellowship Program provides funding to College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) faculty members to support postdoctoral researchers.


Current Postdoctoral Fellowship Recipients


Brittany Johnson

Dr. Brittany Johnson received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from North Caroline State University (2017), after getting her B.A. in Computer Science from the College of Charleston (2011). Her research focus is on improving the tools and processes that are developed to make developers more productive. Her research is interdisciplinary, cross-cutting with research in software engineering, human-computer interaction, and artificial intelligence. Her work focuses on both the needs of the developer and ways that systems can effectively fulfill those needs. Read more about Dr. Brittany Johnson.



Venkata Gandikota

Dr. Venkata Gandikota received his MS and PhD in Computer Science from Purdue University in 2016, after receiving his MSc in Mathematics and BE  in Computer Science from the Birla Institute of Technology & Science. Dr. Gandikota was a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University in 2017. His work has focused on understanding the complexity of the NNS problem and its variants, in high dimensional Euclidean and Hamming spaces. He has also explored a variant of the NNS problem defined on structured datasets, i.e. when the underlying set of data points form a linear error-correcting code or a point lattice.


How to Apply

CDS postdoctoral fellowships are initiated by CICS faculty. Work with the CICS faculty member who best matches your research interests.
