Opportunity: Graduate-Level Research in Industrial Projects for Students (GRIPS)-Berlin July 3 – August 25, 2017

The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) is offering a graduate student research program in Berlin with our partners in Berlin at the research campus MODAL (Mathematical Optimization and Data Analysis Laboratories). This is in conjunction with the Free University of Berlin (FU Berlin) and the Konrad-Zuse Zentrum für Informationstechnik Berlin (ZIB). This will be an 8-week research experience with one of 3 industrial partners. Students will be in Berlin for 2 months, and work in teams of 4 students on exciting projects.

The ideal student is a second or third year graduate student, but we will also consider students who are younger or further along. Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for this program.

The partners and projects for 2017 are:

  • Project 1: Therapy Planning – 1000shapes GmbH
  • Project 2: Nanophotonics – JCMwave GmbH
  • Project 3:  Selecting an Optimization Solver: Machine Learning under Expensive Function Evaluations – Satalia
