One of our goals for the MUSES project is to build and operate a science gateway where researchers can run calculations on HPC resources via a user-friendly, community-oriented web service. The rapidly growing field of Research Software Engineering is populated disproportionately by people like myself who have a physics or other science-related degree who find a rewarding career building research software and supporting scientific discovery through computing. I encourage the MUSES research groups to consider this SGX3-sponsored summer intership at TACC for graduate students.
We will begin to review applications on November 1, 2023. The review process will continue on a rolling basis until all slots are filled. The application process will close on January 31, 2024.
Our Workforce Development team offers internships for students interested in developing their gateway development skills. The internships are intended to provide hands-on experience and to provide a unique opportunity for student engagement with the community.
From Maytal Dahan at TACC:
Hi Everyone, The SGX3 Summer Internship Experience is now open to apply - if you have any graduate students who are looking for a summer program based in person in Austin, Texas at TACC please have them look into it and feel free to ask any questions - sciencegateways - Internships - to clarify this isn’t a job, it is a scholarship and comes with a stipend but it is a really awesome 12 week program and at the bottom of the web page you can learn about last summer’s interns.
About the Science Gateways Community Institute and SGX3:
As a service organization, the SGCI had a primary focus on what it could do to help people actively in the endeavor of creating and operating science gateways. In 2022, however, the team desired to share some of its previous experiences in the form of forward looking documents, to further catalyze the science gateways community by incorporating more participants from domain sciences, and to formalize community-driven, forward-looking blueprints for next-generation emerging needs for future science gateways. This culminated with the funding of a Cyberinfrastructure Center of Excellence called, “SGX3 - A Center of Excellence to Extend Access, Expand the Community, and Exemplify Good Practices for CI Through Science Gateways,” under NSF award #2231406.
