Parallel Computing Summer Research Internship

June 6 - August 12, 2022

Applications are now being reviewed. Three different staff members will review each application before a final decision is made. Students will be notified about their application status starting the first week in February. If you have another internship that you need to make a decision on please let us know at


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.

Note: Due to the current health pandemic, it is still to be determined if the Summer 2022 internship will be held in person or remotely. Student projects will still be offered along with a series of career-enrichment talks and social hours.

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.
