Virtual Guest Student Programme in 2021

JSC will once again host a guest student programme in summer 2021, supported by the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire (CECAM). In light of the restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, the programme will run remotely for the second time. Within the programme, students with a major in natural sciences, engineering, computer science, or mathematics will get the opportunity to familiarize themselves with different aspects of scientific computing. Together with local scientists, they will work on a variety of current topics in research and development. Depending on the participants’ previous knowledge and interests, their assignment can be chosen from different areas, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, neuroscience, software development tools, visualization, distributed computing, operating systems, and communication. Special emphasis is placed on the use of supercomputers.

Participants are expected to have knowledge and experience in the computer-oriented branches of their subjects. They should have already completed their bachelor’s degree but not yet finished a master’s course. Additionally, a letter of recommendation from a university lecturer or professor is required to apply.

The programme will last ten weeks and take place remotely from 2 August to 8 October 2021. Students are encouraged to apply for the programme online. The closing date is 16 May 2021. Further information can be found at
