The Geometry/Topology group
has a very active graduate program. There is constant interaction
between faculty and students, and we are very proud of the
accomplishments of our past students.
Our current and past students have
worked in many areas of low-dimensional topology and geometry
- 3- and 4-Dimensional Topology and Geometry
- Gauge Theory
- Geometric Analysis
- Geometric Variational Problems
- Knot Theory and its Invariants
- Mapping Class Groups
- Symplectic Topology
We welcome inquiries and applications
from students interested in the possibility of graduate work with
our group. If you are interested, please contact one of our faculty
members, and also the Department's Director of Graduate Studies.

As part of our National Science
Foundation supported Research Training Group Program, we are actively
seeking applicants for the graduate program in Geometry/ Topology
at MSU. RTG Graduate Traineeships provide eleven month support for
new graduate students with no teaching duties for the first two
years of study. During their third year, RTG Trainees will be supported
as Department of Mathematics Teaching Assistants. Our goal is to
streamline the path to the Ph.D. and to provide enhanced research
RTG funds will provide eleven month
stipends of $25,000 plus tuition and fees for the two years of the Trainee's program. Each RTG
Trainee will receive also receive a travel allowance.
Participants of this program are
required to be citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the
United States. We actively seek applications from qualified individuals
wishing to participate in the RTG Program. We especially encourage
applications from women and minorities. As one can peruse from our
web page, the Geometry/ Topology Group has had an extremely diverse
as well as successful collection of graduate students.
One can apply by following the
procedures outlined above. Please be sure to indicate your interest
in Geometry/ Topology and in the RTG Program.
