UFII Fellowships

UFII Fellowships

With the UFII Fellowship Programs, the Informatics Institute aims to develop and nurture integrative informatics, data science, machine learning, AI research and educational studies. Both programs serve as share-of-cost awards in order to serve as supplemental support for a post-doctoral associate and/or graduate student already selected and/or employed by a college, department or mentoring PI at the University of Florida.
