RTG-CCoM Undergraduate Researchers

The Center for Computational Mathematics (http://ccom.ucsd.edu/) in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, San Diego invites applications for three undergraduate researchers in applied mathematics, computational science, or mathematical physics that are funded under a NSF Research Training Group (RTG) grant. Applicants should be UCSD undergraduate students majoring in mathematics or a related discipline, with interests aligned with one or more of the five focus projects: (i) new algorithms for parallel computation with adaptive multilevel finite elements; (ii) optimization with ordinary or partial differential equation constraints; (iii) structure-preserving numerical methods for field theories and interconnected systems; (vi) geometric numerical methods for applications in mathematical physics; and (v) numerical methods for quantum computation. Students interested in writing a senior thesis on one of these topics are especially encouraged to apply. These positions include a financial stipend of $1k/month for up to eight months. Interested students should provide an application (as a PDF file) containing at least the following information.
  • Your contact information
  • Your goals in applying for this position
  • Your areas of interest
  • Your background preparation, including classes you have taken, internships, etc
The PDF file should be emailed as an attachment to rtg@ccom.ucsd.edu. Additional information about the RTG can be found at http://ccom.ucsd.edu/~rtg
