The Computational Science Research Center at San Diego State University is looking for qualified applicants for its interdisciplinary Ph.D. program (joint doctoral program) in Computational Science.

We have financial support in the form of Teaching, Graduate, and Research Assistantships and Fellowships. Areas of interest include Nonlinear Dynamics, Bioinformatics, Biomathematics, Soft Condensed Matter Physics, Relativistic Astrophysics, General Relativity, Fluid Dynamics, Material Sciences, Geophysics, Nuclear Physics and Physical Oceanography.

Admission priority and financial support will be given to students
who meet the following deadlines:

Interfolio Application Deadline:
February 15

File Completion:

Those that are recommended by the PhD admissions committee to enter the PhD program starting Fall 2018, will be asked to submit all official test scores and official transcripts to SDSU's Graduate Admissions Office upon acceptance.
