Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
Full-time summer research experience including joint computing seminars and social activities, plus an individualized project working in a UNC research group. Last summer we had hands-on seminars on mathematical modeling, Fourier methods/wavelets, visualization, Monte Carlo simulation, high-performance parallel programming, real-time instrument control, python scripting, and analysis with Mathematica. Individual student research projects span the full range of astronomy and physics subfields, with opportunities from beginner to advanced levels in computing.
