Program Goals: ASSURE will engage U.S. students in research projects and professional development activities that prepare them with key skills required to address problems that have a demonstrated need for supercomputers in addressing their complex nature. Over the course of 10 weeks, students will be exposed to several aspects of international collaborative projects, including understanding how these projects can be initiated and key skills needed to sustain them.
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
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
Location: Depending on students’ research interests, pairs of students will be based in either The National Supercomputing Center (NSCC) in Wuxi, China and the University of Tsinghua and the East China Normal University in Shanghai, China.
Project Dates: Students at the ASSURE site, commit 10 weeks in the Summer to this project. Students will work with a Chinese mentor and a US advisor for 8 weeks while living in China during the Summer months (early June to early August).
Stipend: Each student will receive a total stipend of $5,000 (before tax) for 10-weeks of work, on-campus accommodation in China, and a stipend towards meals. Financial support up to $600 per student is available for domestic travel to the REU site and to conferences. Up to $2800 per student is available for round-trip travel to the research location in China.
Cultural Activities: Opportunities are available for students to explore the Chinese culture, include a trip to the Great Wall of China and visits to several museums.
The National Science Foundation requires that eligible students be U.S. citizens or permanent residents enrolled at a U.S. university for graduate study. Check more eligibility at https://ires-assure.msu.edu/apply/application-eligibility/
Additional Salary Information: Airfare, meals and accommodations are provided
About IRES: ASSuRe
ASSURE is an NSF-funded US-China International Research Experience for graduate Students (IRES). This collaboration between the Tsinghua/National Supercomputing Center at Wuxi (NSCC-Wuxi) and US-based researchers engages Ph.D. students in research learning experiences that increase their capacity to conduct research on supercomputing systems, (including those with classical and emerging architectures), and their exposure to international collaborative research environments. More specifically, the research provided through the ASSURE IRES site focuses on the development and enhancement of software applications and algorithms in science domains that rely on high performance computing systems to advance scientific endeavors. Through this collaboration between supercomputing centers, the project seeks to strengthen existing and develop new collaborations and exchanges between faculty utilizing advanced computing in the areas of advanced manufacturing, earth systems and weather, life sciences and big data.
