Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

Math students interested in quantum, join us to explore the intersection of mathematics and quantum information science (QIS).

In this program, you'll join the MathQuantum research training group at UMD College Park for 8 weeks in summer. You'll engage in a mentored research project and learn knowledge and skills needed to enter research in QIS.

Topics include quantum algorithms, quantum cryptography, and quantum dynamics/systems. Math used includes algebra/representation theory, nonlinear analysis, partial differential equations, scientific computing and stochastic analysis.

What will you get?

- $5,200 stipend for 8 weeks

- Housing at UMD College Park campus

- Funds to travel to and from UMD for summer

- Up to $1,000 conference attendance funding

- Mentored research and interdisciplinary training in applying mathematics to QIS problems

- Optional access to coursework and seminars in theoretical and applied mathematics for QIS

- Professional development and networking opportunities (including Broader Impacts and proposal writing)

- One-on-one career mentoring and guidance

- Community-building and outreach activities (along with 10 other summer undergrad researchers in math and physics)
