Guest Student Programme 2017

In summer 2017, JSC will again be offering a guest student programme that is to be supported by the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire (CECAM) and IBM. Within this programme, students with a bachelor’s degree 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 various current topics in research and development. Depending on the participant's interest and prior knowledge, the assignment can be chosen from a range of different areas, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, neuroscience, software development tools, visualization, distributed computing, operating systems, and communication. Special emphasis is given to the use of supercomputers.

The participants are expected to have expertise and experience in the computer-oriented branches of their subjects. Students should already have completed their bachelor’s degree but not yet finished their master's. In addition, a letter of recommendation from a university lecturer or professor is required for an application.

The programme will last ten weeks from 7 August to 13 October 2017. Students are encouraged to apply for the programme online. The closing date for applications is 26 March 2017. Further information can be found online at
