High Performance Computing Opportunities – Los Alamos National Laboratory

Start your career before you even graduate! Join us at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, where we solve
national security challenges through scientific excellence. This means working in national security, energy, healthcare,
engineering, and more.

The Information Science & Technology Institute (ISTI)’s summer programs for students address emerging challenges in
national security:

  • Parallel Computing Research Internship
    Get a foundation in modern high-performance computing (HPC) and research real problems encountered in large-scale
    scientific codes.
    Target Student: Upper-level undergraduate and early graduate students
    More: https://parallelcomputing.lanl.gov
  • Supercomputer Institute
    Learn the basics of high-performance computing system administration by executing real-world projects on computer
    clusters you assemble and configure.
    Target Student: Upper-level undergraduate and early graduate students
    More: https://clustercomputing.lanl.gov
  • Co-design School
    Work on a team research project related to computational co-design, such as novel programming models on a specific
    application like hydrodynamics and molecular dynamics.
    Target Student: Upper-level graduate students
    More: https://codesign.lanl.gov
  • Data Science at Scale School
    Work with computer and application scientists to work on data-intensive science problems of interest to the laboratory,
    with a particular focus on using big data technologies.
    Target Student: Upper-level undergraduate and graduate students
