Guest Student Programme 2016

During summer 2016, JSC will again offer a guest student programme. It is supported by the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire (CECAM) and IBM. 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 topics of current interest in research and development. Depending on previous knowledge and on the participant’s interests, the assignment can be chosen from different areas. These fields include mathematics, physics, chemistry, neuroscience, HPC tools, visualization, distributed computing, operating systems and communication. Special emphasis is given to the use of supercomputers.

The participants are expected to have knowledge of and 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 1 August to 7 October 2016. Students are encouraged to apply for the programme online. The closing date is 31 March 2016. Further information can be found at
