Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

Advanced Computational Research Experience for Students (ACRES) is a paid 10-week paid summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in computational and data science. Students participating in the program are exposed to the development and enhancement of algorithms, models, and software for applications in research areas that require high-performance computing resources.

Research areas include: Computational biology, computational physics, computational chemistry, computational mathematics, engineering, computational neuroscience, climate modeling, computational education, image analysis and machine learning. A decision about whether the program will run completely in-person or online will be made in spring, based on the current public health situation.
