Three great opportunities via TACC!


The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) is currently accepting applications for three great programs: 

1. Frontera Fellowship Program. Applications are due Friday, February 7, 2020. See details below. 

2. Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Research 4 Social Change -- Research Experience for Undergraduates. Applications are due Sunday, March 1, 2020. See details below. 

3. Advanced Computing for Social Change (ACSC). Applications are due Sunday, March 1, 2020. See details below. 

Details about the Frontera Fellowship Program: 

The year-long Frontera Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for graduate students to compute on the most powerful academic supercomputer in the world, and collaborate with TACC experts.

Included with the fellowship are: 

  • 50,000 node-hours on Frontera
  • Paid summer residence at TACC
  • Training on the latest tools, topics, and trends in advanced computing
  • Collaboration with highly motivated researchers and graduate students
  • Networking with academic and industry professionals
  • Presentation and publication opportunities
  • Stipend: Fellows will receive a $34,000 stipend, up to $12,000 in tuition allowance throughout the year, and travel support to present research results at a Frontera user community event and/or professional conference.

Details about the Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Research 4 Social Change -- Research Experience for Undergraduates

This is a paid, nine-week summer research experience at TACC; University of Texas at Austin. Undergraduates who want to gain advanced programming and problem-solving skills to conduct cutting-edge research in engineering, science, and computational medicine are welcome to apply. Research projects emphasize advanced computing as a tool to power discoveries that will impact social change for future generations. The REU would be completed in Austin, Texas. 

Details about Advanced Computing for Social Change (ACSC) at PEARC

Participants will learn data analytics and computational thinking skills to address social change during a week-long data science challenge that is co-located with the Practice and Experience in Advanced Research Computing (PEARC) 20 Conference, July 25-30, 2020 in Portland, OR. Undergraduates from all majors/disciplines are encouraged to apply. All expenses will be covered for selected participants.
