Rensselaer Summer Program -- Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Training for Modeling Physical Systems

Welcome to the web application form for the Cyberinfrastructure Training program at Rensselaer, funded by the National Science Foundation.  The summer school will take place on the Rensselaer campus in Troy, New York, and will run from July 8, 2019 to July 26, 2019.  The boot camp will take place July 2 to July 5.  Accommodations and travel to and from the summer program are included.

We will consider all applicants, but students who come from colleges and physics programs where adoption of cyberinfrastructure, computational methods and data-intensive computing is only at a modest level are strongly encouraged to apply.  We also strongly encourage applications from women and underrepresented minorities.  For full consideration, students are encouraged to submit all of their materials by April 15, 2019, although applications will be accepted until available positions are filled.

If you are unable to submit this form on-line, you may include the information, along with your personal statement and transcript, in the body of an e-mail message and send it to Professor Joel Giedt, Program Chair.

Please note that all required fields are indicated with an asterisk (*).
