Academic Level:
Graduate Students (Masters)
Graduate Students (PhD)

IRES: ASSURE is a 10-week paid research internship at the National Super Computing Center in Wuxi China (NSCC-Wuxi) or East China Normal University in Shanghai (ECNU-Shanghai). Applicants should be interested in developing research collaborations with colleagues located in China and/or exploring the unique architecture of the NSCC-Wuxi supercomputer. The program accommodates up to 5 graduate students in a variety of disciplines utilizing large scale computing.

Program: participants develop and propose a computationally focused research project with their U.S.-based advisor that utilizes the resources at the international site. Selected students spend 8-weeks in China working on the project and are co-mentored during the Summer by their US-based and a China-based mentor familiar with the local facilities/methods. Several opportunities to learn specifically about Chinese culture are provided including basic Chinese language sessions, a weekend field trip in China highlighting the local history and a research facility tour. Students also participate in sessions that give them opportunities to reflect on how their culture shapes their beliefs and values.

Eligibility: Any U.S. citizen or resident alien (green card) who is a graduate student, and who will not have graduated before Fall, is welcome to apply.

Stipend: A stipend of $5000 is awarded to each intern. Additionally, visa, insurance and air flight costs are covered by the program.
