Guest Student Programme 2011 - Call for Application

During summer 2011, JSC will once again be offering a guest student programme. It will be supported by the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire (CECAM) and the German Research School for Simulation Sciences (GRS). Within this programme, students with a major in natural sciences, engineering, computer science or mathematics will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with different aspects of scientific computing. Together with local scientists, the participants will work on different current topics in research and development. Depending on previous knowledge and on the participant’s interest, the assignments can be taken out of different areas. These fields include mathematics, physics, chemistry, software development tools, visualization, grid computing, operating systems and communication. Special emphasis is placed on the use of supercomputers.

The students should have already completed their first degree but have not yet finished their master’s course. Additionally a letter of recommendation from a university lecturer or professor is required for application.

The programme will last ten weeks and will take place from 1 August to 7 October 2011. Students are encouraged to apply for the programme in written form (English or German). The closing date is 13 May 2011. Further information can be found on the web at
