Supercomputer Opportunities at Argonne National Laboratory

LEMONT, IL (BDPA Chicago) — The world’s most powerful computer ever built in the United States will make its home at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) in 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) and Intel announced last quarter. Aurora, the United States’ first exascale computer, combines unprecedented processing power with the growing potential of artificial intelligence (Ai) to help solve the world’s most important and complex scientific challenges.   Take a quick tour viewing this video.

Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where teams of world-class researchers work alongside experts from industry, academia, and other government laboratories to address vital national challenges in clean energy, environment, technology, and national security. This engaging environment makes Argonne a great place for undergraduates to participate in cutting-edge research and develop a dynamic skill set for the next stage in their careers.

STEM Outreach
To inspire students to consider pursuing a career in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) field, Argonne Educational Programs supports and encourages STEM Outreach. Through facilitating competitions, sending scientists to physically or virtually visit classrooms, and showcasing Argonne research at local STEM fairs and expos for students and families, Argonne Educational Programs commits itself to broadening the impact of STEM awareness in our community.

Internships

Select here for additional outreach information and internship opportunities. DoE’s Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program (MSIPP) offers internships to help develop our future workforce in critically important areas of science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM). We invite you to help us tackle our unique and often-unprecedented scientific and technical challenges, which are engaging some of the finest scientists and engineers in the nation.
