Jetstream is recruiting undergraduate students for a paid research experience! Undergraduate students (U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents only) will do research at Indiana University (Bloomington, IN) during the summer of 2018 as a part of the NSF-funded Jetstream project.

The goal of Jetstream is to increase access to cloud computing resources to researchers in the long-tail-of-science (including social science and humanities research). Students will work with Indiana University researchers and staff to do mentored research projects about Jetstream. Potential research topics include efficient utilization of Jetstream for data analytics tasks, minimizing energy consumption via dynamic load balancing, and best practices with big data analytics using Jetstream. Students will receive a generous stipend as well as living expenses for the duration of the experience. Interested students should contact reu@jetstream-cloud.org for more details and application instructions. For best consideration, submit applications by January 31. 2018.

Founded in 1989, the Coalition for Academic Scientific Computation (CASC) is an educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with 86 member institutions representing many of the nation’s most forward thinking universities and computing centers.
