The Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook University is offering an 8-week Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) for rising sophomore, junior, or senior college undergraduates.

Data + Computing = Discovery presents an opportunity for qualified students who are interested in pursuing a PhD in a STEM field at Stony Brook University to work with world-renowned scientists and researchers. The first week of the REU will be an intensive class where students will learn the Python programming language. From the second week on students will be undertaking research in the labs of the participating mentors and have direct access to the institute's high performance computing clusters. Participants will also have the opportunity to work closely with their faculty mentor, attend seminars on Research Methods and Graduate School Preparation, participate in workshops and present their research results at the REU Symposium and Closing Ceremony at the completion of the program.
