I wanted to share this opportunity for undergraduate students interested in computing related internships this summer. This is the first year of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory PCIP program which was created to encourage participation of underrepresented groups in computing related fields.
The internship is open to US and international undergraduate students studying in US universities and community colleges.
The application will likely close in early February, so I encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
ORNL Pathways to Computing Internship Program
The ORNL Pathways to Computing Internship Program at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is a 10-week summer program that provides undergraduate students with research projects in computer science, computational science, and mathematics. Students will learn under the direction of ORNL research staff and will participate on projects in diverse domains including computer science, health data science, and climate science. Selected interns will have access to ORNL's leadership-class facilities, including Summit, the world's most powerful supercomputer.
ORNL's Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate oversees an immense store of computing power and its talented staff of computational scientists and mathematicians, conducting state-of-the-art research and development in computer and computational sciences in support of the Department of Energy's missions and programs.
As a part of the ORNL Pathways to Computing Internship Program, the Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate is committed to increasing diversity among interns and staff. We believe the teams required to solve the nation's most pressing science challenges are those that bring together a wide-range of backgrounds and perspectives and all are encouraged to apply. The goal of the program is to improve opportunities and encourage applications from underrepresented groups in the computing field; however, all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply.
