Ph.D. Fellowships in CSC at Old Dominion University
We are recruiting two Ph.D. candidates with research interests in Parallel Computing, Algorithms, and/or Scientific Computing,
to join the CSCAPES Institute funded by the Department of Energy's Office of Science.
The CSCAPES (Combinatorial Scientific Computing and Petascale Simulations) Institute, centered at Old Dominion University,
also includes researchers from Sandia and Argonne National Laboratories, and Ohio State and Colorado State Universities.
We have received funding for the CSCAPES Institute for five years. The research involves developing algorithms for combinatorial problems arising in
scientific computing, such as load-balancing, graph coloring, graph matching, and automatic differentiation, on tera- and peta-scale computers.
Students will be guided in their research by Alex Pothen, Assefaw Gebremedhin, and Florin Dobrian.
They will have the opportunity to work at Argonne and Sandia Labs during the summers, and will be co-mentored by Lab scientists.
Students will benefit from joint seminars with CSCAPES member institutions and partner organizations through the Access Grid,
as well as joint workshops with other SciDAC research groups.
Further information about the project is available at http://www.cscapes.org.
Applicants should hold a Master's degree or equivalent in computer science or computational mathematics.
Exceptionally well-qualified students with Bachelor's degrees will also be considered. Excellent academic performance and letters of recommendation attesting to
research ability and motivation are required. The research fellowships include a competitive stipend, supplemented by full tuition remission and funds for
participating in conferences. Students will be able to pursue their studies in the Computer Science or Mathematics departments depending on educational background
and interest. Further information about the departments are available at http://www.cs.odu.edu and http://www.math.odu.edu.
The application deadline is January 15, 2007 for students who wish to be considered for the Fall 2007 semester (or Summer 2007).
Applications should include a completed graduate application, three recommendation letters, a brief research statement, and a CV.
See http://admissions.odu.edu/home.php for templates for the application and recommendation letter. Applications could be completed online (preferred)
or submitted as hardcopy. For questions about these positions, please contact Alex Pothen (http://www.cs.odu.edu/~pothen, Email: pothen "at" cs.odu.edu).
