The Coding Theory, Cryptography, and Number Theory group at Clemson University has been awarded a Research Training Group (RTG) grant from the National Science Foundation.  Grant DMS #1547399 is a continuing grant with an expected total award of $2,126,971 funded from 2016 - 2022.

The long-range goal of the Research Training Groups in the Mathematical Sciences program is to strengthen the nation's scientific competitiveness by increasing the number of well-prepared U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents who pursue careers in the mathematical sciences. Our RTG program supports efforts to improve research training by involving undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral faculty, and regular faculty members in numerous programs focused on the common theme of coding theory, cryptography, and number theory.

PhD Fellowships

We welcome applications from students interested in attending Clemson University with the goal of working with one of the RTG faculty members. Each year we will admit 2-3 students with the intent to fund them with RTG fellowships for part of their graduate studies; teaching assistantships will fund the rest of their time at Clemson University. Please feel free to contact any of the RTG faculty if you are interested in attending graduate school at Clemson University and have overlapping research interest with the RTG.  Please follow the instructions found here to apply for graduate studies at Clemson University.  If you are interested in the RTG, be sure to indicate this as one of your preferred research areas when filling out your application.
