We are seeking an Intern Summer \- R&D Grad

The Computer Science Research Institute \(CSRI\) at Sandia creates technology and solutions for many of our nation's most demanding national security challenges\. The Institutes' portfolio spans the spectrum from fundamental research to state\-of\-the\-art applications\. Our work includes computer system architecture \(both hardware and software\); enabling technology for modeling physical and engineering systems; and support research in discrete mathematics, data analytics, cognitive modeling, and decision support\.

The CSRI enterprise is closely tied to the laboratories' broader set of missions and strategies\. Application areas include nuclear weapons, cyber security, and energy and CO2 challenges such as climate modeling, alternative energy technologies, and improvements to the power grid\. We also serve as stewards of important capabilities for the nation in high\-strain\-rate physics, scientific visualization, mesh generation, and computational materials\. We maintain world\-class research programs in computational and discrete mathematics, computer science, scalable algorithms, and large\-scale high performance computer systems\. In cybersecurity, we focus on open, exploratory research in partnership with academia and industry\.

The CSRI in an exciting and highly multidisciplinary research environment\. CSRI interns have access to, and work with Sandia's state\-of\-the\-art parallel\-computing environment including:

+ Numerous large\-scale clusters
+ Visualization servers
+ Specialized computing systems
+ Laboratories for assessing human performance, simulating cyber networks, performing cyber training and doing exploratory data analysis


You bring the confidence and skills to be eligible for the job by meeting these minimum requirements:

+ Earned bachelor's degree
+ Currently attending and enrolled full time \(or scheduled to graduate in the spring\) in an accredited science, engineering, or math graduate program
