View Position
Project TitleStudent Developers of Parallel Computation Curriculum
SummaryThese positions are for interns to further develop existing codes in C and FORTRAN that can be used to demonstrate concepts of physical and computer scaling in an undergraduate computational science lesson. The codes will likely utilise both MPI and CUDA.
Job DescriptionThe scientific application here is modelling the fate and transport of scalar quantities (e.g. heat, salinity, pollutants) in river systems. We will be further developing a numerical algorithm which solves the partial differential equations describing these systems. We will implement these models using C and FORTRAN on multi-core architectures using MPI and CUDA.
Conditions/QualificationsUndergraduate or 4+1 student at Stockton College
