REU Getting Set for 2014

The Computational Science for Undergraduate Research Experiences (CSURE) Program Seeks Participants for Summer

With a fruitful and successful first year to its credit, the 10-week CSURE summer program from the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS) is encouraging bright undergraduate students from across the country to apply for the 2014 edition of this National Science Foundation-funded Research Experience for Undergraduates, known as an REU. CSURE offers undergraduate students the opportunity to use supercomputers managed by the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) and housed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to explore leading-edge computational science models and techniques successful in many data- and compute-intensive applications. The deadline for application submission has been extended to March 14.

For more details about the 2014 program, application requirements, financial support, and mailing address—along with a link to the CSURE 2013 main page for a good feel of the projects and activities of last year—visit the CSURE REU page on the JICS website.

About JICS: The Joint Institute for Computational Sciences was established by the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to advance scientific discovery and state-of-the-art engineering, and to further knowledge of computational modeling and simulation. JICS realizes its vision by taking full advantage of petascale-and-beyond computers housed at ORNL and by educating a new generation of scientists and engineers well-versed in the application of computational modeling and simulation for solving the most challenging scientific and engineering problems.

About NICS: The National Institute for Computational Sciences operates the University of Tennessee supercomputing center, funded in part by the National Science Foundation. NICS is a major partner in NSF’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, known as XSEDE.
