Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Computational Physics Division, in cooperation with other related divisions including Theoretical Design and Computer, Computational and Statistical Sciences, is pleased to sponsor the annual Computational Physics Student Summer Workshop.
The workshop seeks to bring to Los Alamos National Laboratory a diverse group of exceptional undergraduate and graduate students for informative, enriching lectures and to work with its staff for 10 weeks on interesting, relevant projects that may culminate in articles or conference presentations. Students are organized into groups of 2-3 working under the guidance of one or more mentors.
Each participant is awarded a fellowship that typically ranges from $7,500 to $13,000, based on academic rank (junior, senior, first year graduate student, etc.). Only U.S. citizens are admitted.
The deadline for application submission is Monday, January 23, 2017.
For the 2017 Summer Workshop we plan to pursue the following research topics:
- Stopping Power in Warm Dense Matter (Stopping Power)
- Lengthscale Equations for Turbulence Modeling (Lengthscale Equations)
- Predictive Models for Brittle Damage Failure of Materials (Brittle Damage)
- Monte Carlo Transport of Cosmic Rays and the Search for Dark Matter Annihilation (Cosmic Ray Propagation )
- Computational Fluid Dynamics at Scale (CFD at Scale)
- Richtmyer-Meshkov Instability for High Impedance Mismatch Imploding Shells (Imploding Shells)
- Bridging the Performance-Productivity Gap of Vectorization (Vectorize!)
- Using Monte Carlo to Determine Multiple Neutron Eigenvalues (Eigenvalues)
- Impact Modeling of Seismic Waves to Facilitate Prospecting on Other Planets (Seismic Waves)
- Cosmological Origins of Water in the Universe (Water Origins)
- Modeling Thermal Feedback in Nuclear Reactors (Thermal Feedback)
- Many-atom Modeling of Electron Photoinjection (Photoinjection)
