Funding Opportunities


The HEP-CCE is happy to announce a call for applications to its 2018 GRADUATE STUDENT SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM. This program gives graduate students in HEP with a strong interest in computing a chance to work with teams at DOE laboratories on challenging problems currently facing HEP.

Applications to the program should include a CV, a statement of current research, and a short statement on how participation in the program will benefit the student’s current work and future career. A letter of recommendation from the student’s research adviser is also required.

Deadline: March 2, 2018

Quantum Computing Summer School at Los Alamos National Laboratory

The Quantum Computing Summer School at Los Alamos National Laboratory is an immersive 10-week curriculum that includes tutorials from world-leading experts in quantum computation as well as one-on-one mentoring from LANL staff scientists who are conducting cutting-edge quantum computing research. Summer school fellowship recipients will be exposed to the theoretical foundations of quantum computation and will become skilled at programming commercial quantum computers, such as those developed by D-Wave Systems and IBM. Ten students will be awarded a fellowship from LANL that covers travel, living expenses in Los Alamos, and salary, with a fellowship value ranging from $7,500 to $13,000, based on academic rank (junior, senior, 1st year graduate student, etc.).

Generators for High Performance Computing

The SLAC HEP Theory Group expects to make a Research Associate postdoctoral appointment for a 2-year term beginning October 1, 2018. The successful applicant is expected to work on the construction of a Monte-Carlo event generator for collider physics, suitable for parallel calculations on High Performance Computers.
The senior members of our group are: Stan Brodsky, Lance Dixon, Alexander Friedland, JoAnne Hewett, Stefan Hoeche, Michael Peskin, Thomas Rizzo, Philip Schuster and Natalia Toro. The interests of our group cover all areas of particle physics, quantum field theory, and the interface of particle physics and astroparticle physics. We have strong ties to experimental groups interested in high energy collider physics and particle astrophysics.

Work for NERSC!

NERSC currently has several openings for postdocs, system administrators, and more! If you’re looking for new opportunities, please consider the following openings:

– NERSC Exascale Science Applications Postdoctoral Fellow ( work in mutidisciplinary teams to transition codes to Cori and produce mission-relevant science that truly pushes the limits of high-end computing.

– NERSC Exascale Science Applications Postdoctoral Fellow for Data ( collaborate with scientific teams to enable the solution of deep, meaningful problems in data-intensive experimental/observational sciences such as cosmology, high-energy physics, neuroscience, and imaging.

– HPC Systems Engineer ( help architect, deploy, configure, and maintain large-scale, leading-edge systems of high complexity (e.g., Cori and Edison). US Citizenship or permanent residency required.

– Software Engineer / API Developer ( build a new system for tracking resource usage across our supercomputing environment, and create an API for this system and eventually the whole center.

We know that NERSC users can make great NERSC employees! We look forward to seeing your application.

Position at LBNL

Berkeley Lab’s Physics Division has an opening for a Physicist Project Scientist responsible for developing and evaluating new software workflows that exploit the capabilities of the High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities at the Lab’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). These workflows will allow physicists in the High-Energy and Nuclear Physics groups at LBNL to efficiently perform Monte Carlo simulation, data reconstruction, and data analysis.

ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational & Data Science Graduate Fellowships

ACM SIGHPC and Intel have launched an international graduate fellowship program aimed at increasing the diversity of students pursuing degrees in data science and computational science. This program will support students pursuing degrees at institutions anywhere in the world. Interested faculty advisors and students can find more information at Nominations close April 30, 2017. Contact with any questions.

HEP-CCE Announces: Graduate Student Summer Internship Program

The HEP-CCE announces a summer internship program for graduate students in the US who would like to work at Argonne National Laboratory, Fermilab National Accelerator Laboratory, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The program covers the three high energy physics frontier  areas (Cosmic, Energy, and Intensity) and is aimed at  computationally-oriented graduate students interested in new  educational, training, and research opportunities. A strong computing/computational background is highly desirable. Continue reading HEP-CCE Announces: Graduate Student Summer Internship Program
