Parallel Computing Summer Research Internship

The Parallel Computing Summer Research Internship is an intense 10-week program aimed at providing students with a solid foundation in modern high performance computing (HPC) topics integrated with research on real problems encountered in large-scale scientific codes.


Applications for Summer 2023 are now being accepted.

Apply here

Three different staff members will review each application before a final decision is made. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis. A limited number of seats are reserved for early admission on a first-come, first-served basis. Select students may receive an offer within 2-3 weeks of application submission. All other students will be notified by mid-February. 

If there are any questions or concerns, please email

Program Overview

During the 10-week program, students will receive training and lectures on modern topics in HPC and software development, including:

  • Parallel programming
  • Programming models
  • Algorithms
  • Hardware architecture and its impact on code design choices
  • High-quality software development in collaborative environments
  • Visualization and workflow

Students will collaborate in teams to identify and investigate different computational problems within the scientific focus area, and implement solutions guided by mentors with scientific and computational expertise. By working on cutting-edge HPC hardware, students will gain hands-on experience and learn how to effectively communicate their work through posters and oral presentations.
