Participate in a summer research experience focusing on the discovery and visualization of structure in large datasets.
The ten week program runs from May 20 to July 26 at the Department of Computer Science and the Center for Computational Science at the University of Miami.
Applications will open soon. Please email your interest in the program to email@example.com. Two essays, transcript and a letter of a reference will be required.
Training, mentorship, presentation, and peer engagement are all key elements of this project to assist or encourage you to become a research scientist. The program includes:
Computation is becoming increasingly important for finding structure in large-scale complex scientific data. The Department of Computer Science (CSC) in partnership with the Center for Computational Science (CCS) and other departments according to the specific project, will provide NSF sponsored summer research experiences (REU) in this focus area.
The heart of an NSF REU is the mentored research experience. You will work on authentic research projects in close collaboration with a UM researcher.
The following projects are proposed:
The NSF has set up the REU program in order to involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs so as to attract talented students into careers in science and engineering.
Students in this REU program are offered:
Housing begins on Sunday, May 19th, and extends until Sunday, July 28th. Housing is in the Mahoney-Hecht residential building, on campus. Flying into MIA airport gives a short taxi, Uber or metrorail journey (University stop) to the campus. The housing includes,
Miami is a fantastic city highly influenced by our South American and Caribbean neighbors, with activities at the unique Everglades National Park, brand new Frost Science Museum and Perez Art Museum, along with the famous Miami Beach Deco District, Wynwood art district with its fabled Wynwood Walls, the Fairchild Tropical Garden, Vizcaya, the Venetian Pool and many other attractions.
The full title of this program is REU Site: Scientific Computing for Structure in Big or Complex Datasets and it is NSF grant CNS-1659144. The REU program is described in program solicitation NSF 13-542, Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).
Selection of students is based on relative GPA and the applicant must submit two essays. In one essay the student can introduce herself or himself. We encourage biographic sketches, or statements of aspirational models. In the second essay, the applicant should focus on her or his expectations for the summer program.
We will take a holistic approach in selection but evidence of academic promise and conscientious writing will be heavily considered. Although targeted to students in the first and second year of undergraduate studies, the project is flexible as to the undergraduate year of the applicant.
All applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents, and must be an enrolled undergraduate during the REU summer.
Please email Prof. Rosenberg, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
Requests for letters of recommendation will be sent out for each applicant, but the applicant is free to ask their reviewer to visit this recommendation form.
