Guest Student Programme 2015

In summer 2015, JSC will again offer a guest student programme supported by CECAM and IBM. In this programme, students majoring in the natural sciences, engineering, computer science or mathematics will be given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with different aspects of scientific computing. Together with local scientists, the participants will work on various current topics in research and development. Depending on previous knowledge and on the participant’s interest, an assignment can be chosen from different areas. These fields include mathematics, physics, chemistry, neuroscience, software development tools, visualization, distributed computing, operating systems and communication. Special emphasis is placed on the use of supercomputers.

The participants are expected to have some experience in the computer-oriented branches of their subjects. The students should have completed their first degree but not yet finished their master’s course. Additionally, a letter of recommendation from a university lecturer or professor is required.

The programme will last ten weeks from 3 August to 9 October 2015. Students are encouraged to apply for the programme online. The closing date for applications is 31 March 2015. Further information can be found on the website at
