REU VI

Henry Neeman let us know of a summer REU at LSU for those of you with an interest computer science:

Louisiana State University is now accepting applications for TWO Summer 2012 REU Programs in Computational Sciences and Material Sciences.

Please distribute this information to your students as these are great opportunities for them.

CCT REU: Interdisciplinary Research Experience in Computational Sciences
http://reu.cct.lsu.edu/
************************************************************************

The Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) hosts a nine week Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program where students work collaboratively on a wide variety of computational science projects.

Each student receives a stipend of $4,500, free housing in university dormitories, and up to $500 in travel expenses to and from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Nine students will be selected.

Qualifications:

* Interested in a major that is within the computational sciences umbrella (leaves out few majors as it includes all sciences, mathematics, engineering, finance, statistics, etc.)

* At least a 2.75 GPA

* Considering a career in research and/or graduate school in your major

* US citizen or permanent resident

Important Dates:
March 1, 2012: Application deadline.
March 30, 2012: Notification of decision.
May 29, 2012 through July 28, 2012: Program dates.

The research activities of the CCT are organized into five Focus
Areas:

* Core Computing Sciences
* Coast to Cosmos
* Material World
* Cultural Computing
* System Science and Engineering

These are broad, and sometimes overlapping areas where faculty from diverse departments (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Civil Engineering, Oceanography and Coastal Sciences, Petroleum Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computing Engineering, Music, Business, etc.) collaborate in multidisciplinary projects.

Our REU students learn how to use some of the nation’s largest supercomputers, may participate in the setup and management of large-scale simulations, and may take on an important role in the analysis and visualization of the simulation results.

LA-SiGMA REU: Interdisciplinary Research Experiences in Materials Science
http://reu.lasigma.loni.org/
*************************************************************************

This Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) project is a nine week program where students work collaboratively on a wide variety of materials science projects.

Each student receives a stipend of $4,500, free housing in university dormitories, and up to $400 in travel expenses.

Thirty students will be selected, five each at Louisiana State University, Louisiana Tech University, Southern University at Baton Rouge, Tulane University, University of New Orleans, and Xavier University of Louisiana.

Qualifications:

* Interested in a major that is within the computational sciences umbrella (leaves out few majors as it includes all sciences, mathematics, engineering, finance, statistics, etc.)

* At least a 2.75 GPA

* Considering a career in research and/or graduate school in your major

* US citizen or permanent resident

Important Dates:
March 1, 2012: Application deadline.
March 30, 2012: Notification of decision.
May 29, 2012 through July 28, 2012: Program dates.

The research activities of LA-SiGMA are organized into three Science Drivers:

* Electronic Materials
* Energy Materials
* Biomolecular Materials

and the CyberTools and Cyberinfrastructure group.

These are broad, and sometimes overlapping areas where faculty from diverse departments (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computing Engineering, Biomolecular Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, etc.) collaborate in multidisciplinary projects.

Our REU students learn how to use some of the nation’s largest supercomputers, may participate in the setup and management of large-scale simulations, and may take on an important role in the analysis and visualization of the simulation results.
