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: Feb 19, 2018
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.).
