Join in, Make a Difference, Stand out
The CCS is pleased to announce the launch of the CCS Fellows Program for this academic year.
The mission of the CCS Fellows Program is to inspire a new generation of leaders in computational science by offering students the opportunity to work in a broad cross-disciplinary research setting. This is awarded to two undergraduate students and two graduate students per year. Last year’s program was resoundingly successful, the students gained valuable computational skills, and the program resulted in three continued cross-disciplinary collaborations among the participants and their mentors.
Fellows will have the opportunity to use CCS’s world-class High Performance Computing facilities for their research, and to work closely with CCS faculty, members, and staff. Fellows are expected to conduct a research project for the duration of the Fellowship under the guidance of a mentor who must not be the student’s direct academic advisor or PI. Fellows may enroll in appropriate courses for research credits, and approach CCS faculty and staff for access to software or HPC facilities as needed. Fellows will present their work at the CCS Fellows Program Symposium in Spring 2015.
Applications are now being accepted for the CCS Fellows 2014-2015 Program. The program is open to graduate students in their 2nd year or above, and to undergraduate students at sophomore level or above, from any Department at the University of Miami. Applicants must be of good standing and have an interest in computational science. Previous research experience is an advantage. The deadline for submitting an application is Wednesday October 29th.
