Thinking about grad school? Do you enjoy research in computational science?

This Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project is a ten week program where students work collaboratively on a wide variety of computational science projects.

The Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) at Louisiana State University (LSU) 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, or computational music, the participants work on cutting edge research in Computational Sciences.

The students 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 are exposed to how international collaborations work.

This program involves nine students every summer. Each student receives a stipend of $5,000, free housing in university dormitories, and up to $600 in travel expenses to and from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

We invite interested students and their faculty mentor to browse through this site and consider applying for these positions.

Welcome back from winter break!

I hope you all had a restful break and ready to hit the ground running this spring. I’ve updated my running list of Tech Opportunities on my web page. Some highlights include:

  • Emerging Tech Summit on February 22 and 23. Open to recruits and current students.
  • Information about I.S. competitions at Ball State and in Galveston, TX.
  • Internship and full-time job opportunities list is getting quite extensive.

Again, welcome back!

New Tech Opportunities and @MillikinPC Presentation Tonight!

Happy Last week of Classes!

Check out my Tech Opportunities page on my website and let Professor Ed Weber or me know if you are interested in any of these. A new opportunity has been added this week to assist Homework Hangout implement the database students built last spring. Let me know if you are interested.

Also, MU Performance Consulting is delivering their semester-end presentation on the client projects they have worked on this semester through the student-run venture. You are welcome to join us at 5:00 in UC 138/140. You can also check it out on the MU Performance Consulting Facebook page as it will be live streamed.

We’re also always looking for ways to keep you engaged outside of class. If you have an evening event hackathon or something special you want to help organize, let us know.

If I don’t get to tell you personally, good luck in the final stretch of the semester and and enjoy a much-needed winter break.
