XSEDE Seeking Students for Summer Work Project

Need Summer Research Experience? The XSEDE Student Engagement Program is seeking undergraduate and graduate students for a 10-week project experience for this summer. Working with XSEDE researchers and staff, students will make meaningful contributions to research, development, and systems projects that benefit the national scientific and computational community. In exchange, students will be provided with travel support for project orientation and to attend the XSEDE14 conference in Atlanta, GA in July, and a small stipend.

Projects for 2014 address a wide variety of computational needs. Some of the projects allow students to work remotely (from their home or home institution), although some require the student to be onsite at their supervisor’s institution. All projects will have well-defined work plans, established collaboratively at the orientation meeting. Students are also expected to participate in surveys and other evaluation activities, to help XSEDE track the effectiveness and impact of the program.

Available projects are listed at 2014 Student Engagement Projects.
