2017 MoISSI Software Fellowships
The Molecular Sciences Software Institute (MoISSI) is holding its inaugural 2017 Software Fellowship competition. These prestigious awards recognize advanced graduate students and postdocs pursuing the development of software infrastructure, middleware and frameworks that will benefit the broader field of computational molecular sciences, including biomolecular and macromolecular simulations, quantum chemistry and materials science.
Fellows will receive specialized training in state-of-the-art software design principles and tools, and they will engage in outreach and educational efforts organized by the MoISSI. Each Fellow will be assigned a mentor among the Institute’s software scientists, who will oversee their software development efforts and training. Fellows will spend a minimum of one week each year at the Institute headquarters at Virginia Tech to interact with the Software Scientists, members of the MoISSI Board of Directors, members of the Science and Software Advisory Board and other visitors.
Encourage your graduate students and postdocs to apply by Wednesday, February 1, 2017.
Blue Waters Fellowship application
The Blue Waters Graduate Fellowship Program is a unique program for doctoral students funded by the National Science Foundation. As part of this program, several graduate students from across the country will be immersed in a year of focused high-performance computing and data-intensive research. The fellowships will empower the selected doctoral students to advance their HPC knowledge while also providing them with access to Blue Waters and support to accelerate their research.
Encourage your doctoral students to submit all supporting materials except reference letters by 11:59 p.m. PST on Friday, February 3, 2017.
Google Summer of Code
