Application Deadline: February 1

The Givens Associates summer program is intended to encourage graduate students who are beginning careers in numerical analysis or computational mathematics. Givens Associates will work actively with MCS scientists designing, analyzing, and implementing numerical and visualization methods.

The MCS Division has strong programs in software tools and in numerical methods for automatic differentiation, optimization, partial differential equations, and linear algebra. Internationally recognized for innovative research in high-performance computing, the MCS Division supports an excellent computational environment that includes access to a Blue Gene/P cluster, two other Linux clusters, a scientific visualization laboratory, and a distributed computing laboratory.

Givens Associates receive a stipend of $4,200 to $4,400 per month, depending on experience level. Transportation expenses are reimbursed for one round trip between the Laboratory and the participant’s home or university for round-trip distances greater than 100 miles. Note: federal/state income taxes will be withheld from the stipend and the stipend amount includes funding to pay for lodging costs. Six appointments will be made for 10 to 12 summer weeks and may be renewed for a second summer.

To be eligible, you must be in an accredited Ph.D. program in mathematics, applied mathematics, computer science, or a related field at a U.S. university.
