ARCC Student Research Programmers

The University of Wyoming Advanced Research Computing Center (ARCC) is looking for enthusiastic students with outstanding work ethic to fill a range of paid and for-credit internship positions.

Students will participate in academic and industry work, depending on their area of study and available projects, such as biomedical computing, computational biology, geophysics, chemistry, statistics, big data management, machine learning, cluster management, and others.

Some background in programming is desirable, but students with strong knowledge of a domain science (biology, physics, chemistry) will be considered if programming experience is lacking.

Training in cluster computing and advanced programming will be provided. Both undergraduate and graduate level positions are available. Undergrads will be expected to work 10 hours per week, grads will be expected to work 20 hours per week, both with very competitive hourly salaries.

Come gain valuable skills to help you stand out of the crowd on the job market!
