Guest Student Programme 2012 - Call for Application

During summer 2012, 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 an 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 their previous knowledge and on the participant's interests, the assignments can be taken out of different areas. These fields include mathematics, physics, chemistry, software development tools, visualization, distributed computing, operating systems and communication. Special emphasis is placed on the use of supercomputers.

The participants are expected to be familiar with and have experience in the computer-oriented branches of their subjects. The students should already have 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 6 August to 12 October 2012. Students are encouraged to apply for the programme in writing (English or German). The closing date for applications is 9 May 2012. Further information can be found on the web at
