NSF IRES ASSURE (Algorithms & Software for SUpercomputers with emerging aRchitEctures)

Program Focus: Graduate Student Research Opportunity: The Algorithms & Software for SUpercomputers with emerging aRchitEctures (ASSURE) program provides graduate students with opportunities to investigate the capabilities of classical and emerging HPC hardware architectures and to understand how these can be leveraged for research in a variety of science and engineering disciplines that rely on high-performance computing systems to advance scientific endeavors. This US-China International Research for Students (IRES) site is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Main Research Themes: Students with an interest in the following research areas are invited to apply to this site. Students may either select one from the research projects areas listed or propose their own project focus

  • Earth Systems: Mesoscale weather forecasting; Earthquake prediction and simulation Drug Design
  • Advanced Manufacturing: Utilizing multi-grid methods to simulate flow
  • Big Data: Developing parallel open source codes to process large NGS data
  • Machine Learning: Integrating ML/DL and mathematics for biomolecular data analysis, Developing asynchronous parallel algorithms for general problems

Dates (early June to early August). Stipends Available!
