FACEBOOK FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

Every day Facebook confronts among the most complex technical problems and believes that close relationships with the academy will enable it to address many of these problems at a fundamental level and solve them. As part of its ongoing commitment to academic relations, it is pleased to announce the creation of a Facebook Fellowship program to support graduate students in the 2010-2011 school year.

Facebook is interested in a wide range of academic topics, including the following topical areas:

-- Cloud Computing: storage, databases, and optimization for computing in a massively distributed environment.
-- Social Computing: models, algorithms and systems around social networks, social media, social search and collaborative environments. 
-- Data Mining and Machine Learning: learning algorithms, feature generation, and evaluation methods to produce effective online and offline models of behavioral signals.
-- Systems: Hardware, operating system, runtime, and language support for fast, scalable, efficient data centers.
-- Information Retrieval: search algorithms, information extraction, question answering, cross-lingual retrieval and multimedia retrieval
