Virtual Guest Student Programme 2022

In summer 2022, JSC is once again offering a virtual guest student programme supported by the Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire (CECAM). Within this programme, students with a major in natural sciences, engineering, computer science, or mathematics get the opportunity to familiarize themselves with different aspects of scientific computing. Together with local scientists, the participants work on a range of current topics in research and development. Assignments can be chosen from different areas depending on the participants’ previous knowledge and interests. These areas include 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. Students should already have completed their first degree but not yet have finished their master’s course. Additionally, a letter of recommendation from a university lecturer or professor is required for application.

The programme will take place remotely over ten weeks from 1 August to 7 October 2022. Students are encour-aged to apply for the programme online. The closing date is 8 May 2022 (extended deadline). Further information can be found on the Internet at
