The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) is offering a great summer research opportunity for graduate students that is particularly relevant for SIAM members.
IPAM presents an eight-week summer research program for graduate students in mathematics or a related field. The program is called the Graduate Research in Industrial Projects for Students (GRIPS). During this research program, the students work in teams on projects that are sponsored by an industrial partner. The projects cover a wide range of topics, including big data, optimization, transportation, quantum computing, and bio-tech. GRIPS is offered in two locations:
GRIPS-Berlin is in Berlin, Germany, together with our partners at the Mathematical Optimization and Data Analysis Laboratories (MODAL).
GRIPS-Sendai is in Sendai, Japan, together with the Research Alliance Center for Mathematical Sciences (RACMaS).
This program is open to U.S. graduate students or permanent residents in mathematics or a related field. More information about the two programs and a link to the respective application pages is available here and here.
