NSF REU: Interdisciplinary Research Experience in Computational Sciences*
*Application deadline: March 31, 2010**
This summer 2010, the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) at
Louisiana State University (LSU) will host its first Research Experience
for Undergraduates (REU). This REU project is a nine week program where
students will work collaboratively on a wide variety of computational
CCT provides an ideal setting for the REU student to become familiar
with interdisciplinary research. With research groups exploring
gravitational waves, complex emergent phenomena in material science,
scientific visualization, coastal modeling, computational music, advance
parallel computer architecture, among other topics, the participants
will be working on cutting edge research in Computational Sciences.
The students will learn how to use the most current cyberinfrastructure
tools with individually designed training sessions targeted to their
specific degree of preparation. In addition, since most CCT research
groups collaborate with international researchers, REU students will be
exposed to how international collaborations work.
This program will involve eight students every summer, and will run from
May 31, 2010 through July 30, 2010. Each student will receive a stipend
of $4,500, free housing in university dormitories, and up to $500 in
travel expenses to and from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
We invite interested undergraduate and graduate students to consider
applying for these positions. (Must be a US citizen or permanent
resident to apply).
