Many research problems in science and engineering rely on both interdisciplinary knowledge and sophisticated computing. The Remote Data Analysis and Visualization (RDAV) Center seeks motivated undergraduate students who are eager to take on these challenges by using high performance computing to attack research problems in the biological, physical, social, computing, or engineering sciences. We have opportunities for the summer of 2013 at all stages of the data analysis process: From preparing raw data, to using and developing data analysis and visualization processes and tools, to deploying web-based interfaces for interacting with the results. Our center works with researchers who are tackling a wide range of problems including extracting meaning through text mining, understanding biodiversity, making sense of the universe, and developing visualization tools. We seek students with a passion for real-world problems, an understanding of science or engineering, and the computer science skills to make it happen. Ideal students will be majoring in a science or engineering discipline with a strong background in computer science; students in all majors and from all backgrounds will be considered. We highly encourage applications from students from under-represented groups. RDAV is a joint project between several institutions. We expect to have opportunities available at our main offices at the University of Tennessee's Joint Institute for Computational Sciences in Knoxville and Oak Ridge, TN as well as at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL) in Berkeley, CA. The positon at LBL requires skills in C/C++, Python, and HTML5; WebGL is optional for this position.
