Outstanding opportunities for undergrads interested in cyberinfrastructure

This summer, Jetstream - the National Science Foundation’s first production cloud computing system - will host undergraduate students from around the country for its fourth annual Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. From late May through early August, students will live on campus at IU Bloomington while working on mentored research projects on data analytics, minimizing energy consumption via dynamic load balancing, and best practices for compute-intensive humanities projects. Participating students will receive a generous stipend, and accommodations in one of IU’s dorms (if necessary). Application materials are due March 16, 2020, and can be found here.

Meanwhile, just steps from Jetstream’s home in the Cyberinfrastructure Building, OmniSOC - the Omni Security Operations Center -  will host its second summer internship program, in which students will learn about security issues while defining, researching, and presenting a program project. The OmniSOC internship will begin with four weeks of learning and hands-on experience in cybersecurity at Indiana University, Bloomington followed by four weeks at each student’s home campus. Students will receive a stipend and will live in on-campus housing while at IU Bloomington. When the students return to their home campuses, they will work with security experts at their universities to continue their cybersecurity experience. Application materials are due April 1, 2020, and can be found here. Please note that applications must be enrolled at an OmniSOC partner institution (IU, Purdue, Northwestern, Nebraska, and Rutgers).
