2021 SIParCS Internship Positions Are Open

SIParCS applications are open!

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2021 Summer Internships in Parallel Computational Science. The application deadline for the 2021 SIParCS program is January 8, 2021 at 4pm Mountain Time.

This year we are offering undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work with 12 projects ranging in topic from machine learning, data science, software engineering, data assimilation, digital asset management, visualization, and application optimization/parallelization in HPC among others. If you’re interested in applying, please visit our website to review our technical statements of work and apply to up to two projects you would like to work with. To learn more about the SIParCS experience, check out our video.

We also have a CISL Outreach, Diversity, and Education (CODE) Intern, for graduate students in Higher Education Administration / Student Affairs, Science Education, Education Policy, Social Work, or related programs who are interested in learning about HPC Education and Outreach.

See How to Apply for tips on applying to SIParCS.  Applicants will be required to submit the following:

  1. Application through HR website (no more than two (2) projects)
  2. CV/Resume
  3. Letter of Interest
  4. Unofficial Transcript (from all institutions attended)
  5. Contact information for TWO references (submit names here)

Share this email widely to students who may be interested in an internship at NCAR next summer. International Students who are eligible to work in the U.S. are welcomed and encouraged to apply.

As always, if you have any questions about the program or the application process, you can reach us at or 303-497-1288.

Weile Wei (2019) earned a Master in Computer Science at Louisiana State University in May 2020 thesis titled Enabling Parallel Abstraction Layer to DCA++ Using HPX and GPUDirect. He participated in Google Summer of Code and began a Ph.D. in Computer Science at LSU in May 2020. Weile’s paper “Performance Analysis of a Quantum Monte Carlo Application on Multiple Hardware Architectures Using the HPX Runtime” was accepted to a SuperComputing 2020 workshop and will be published in an IEEE series.

About the SIParCS Program

The goal of the Summer Internships in Parallel Computational Science (SIParCS) program is to make a long-term, positive impact on the quality and diversity of the workforce needed to use and operate 21st century supercomputers. Graduate students and undergraduate students (who have completed their sophomore year by summer) gain significant hands-on experience in high-performance computing and related fields that use HPC for scientific discovery and modeling.

This program embeds students as summer interns in the Computational and Information Systems Laboratory, an organization within NCAR charged with provisioning supercomputing and data systems to the geosciences research community. The roles of service and research in CISL support NCAR’s broad scientific mission of discovery in the atmospheric and related sciences.
