A week-long workshop held at the University of California, San Diego that focuses on a broad spectrum of introductory-to-intermediate topics in High Performance Computing and Data Science. The program is aimed at researchers in academia and industry, especially in domains not traditionally engaged in supercomputing, who have problems that cannot typically be solved using local computing resources. This year’s Summer Institute continues SDSC’s strategy of bringing High Performance Computing to the Long Tail of Science, i.e. providing resources to a larger number of modest-sized computational research projects that represent, in aggregate, a tremendous amount of scientific progress.
The registration fee is $300 and includes coffee and lunch, it is due only after the application is accepted.

Students will learn to design, interpret, and critically evaluate the use of stable isotopic tools. pecifically, we will focus on efficiently learning terminology and notation, sources of variation, mathematical models of isotope composition, and key applications of stable isotope techniques. The laboratory section of the course will provide hands on experience with stable isotope mass spectrometers WSU Stable Isotope Core Facility to train you to run your own samples.
For information contact Dr. R. Dave Evans (5-7466; firstname.lastname@example.org)
Projects supported by the Higher Education Challenge Grants Program will: (1) address a state, regional, national, or international educational need; (2) involve a creative or non-traditional approach toward addressing that need that can serve as a model to others; (3) encourage and facilitate better working relationships in the university science and education community, as well as between universities and the private sector, to enhance program quality and supplement available resources; and (4) result in benefits that will likely transcend the project duration and USDA support.
The intern will assist NRCS with the annual maintenance and upgrading of NRCS’s Snotel and snow course sites across the state. Based out of Boise, the 13 weeks of work will take you to tops of mountains from the headwaters of the Snake River to the Idaho Panhandle.

Mark Solomon, Interim IWRRI Director
USGS is seeking summer interns to evaluate hydrologic cycle models and observational data across the United States. A prototype tool has been developed that allows exploration of observations and model results at several spatial and temporal scales. During the summer, a team of students will engage in rigorous application of this tool to identify the strengths and weaknesses of existing models of the hydrologic cycle. Students will also have the opportunity to improve the tool and add functionality. Through frequent interactions with developers of hydrologic models within USGS, interns will be challenged to think critically about the representation of hydrologic processes used in models and to consider alternative strategies towards model development and evaluation. This unique summer session will be held at the USGS offices in the Denver Federal Center.
Applications are due through USAJobs by April 14.
Project leads for this summer session are William Farmer, Lauren Hay, and Julie Kiang. Please contact William Farmer with any questions (email@example.com, 303-236-4981).
The Software Carpentry workshop, sponsored by CEREO and WSU’s Graduate and Professional Student Association is another two-day, hands-on event geared towards those interested in developing core skills for working with data effectively and reproducibly. This workshop covers how to use the command line, git, and building programs in R (e.g. functions, loops). Participants work through short tutorials and practical exercises done via live coding. No prior experience with R or programming is necessary. This workshop will be held 6–7 April 2017. Register today

Learn how to better communicate your research and outreach objectives through creative data visualization. This workshop will feature visualization expert Skye Moret of Periscopic (www.periscopic.com) and is intended for participants from ANY discipline who are interested in enhancing their communication skills. During the workshop participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of effective data visualization and communication, which includes best practices in graphic design and the sciences. We will get hands-on experience by helping to develop communication materials to highlight recent stream restoration efforts of Paradise Creek.
Learn about prestigious fellowship opportunities such as the NSF Graduate Research
Fellowship Program, Ford Foundation, and USDA Fellowships, and how to be competitive
in the application process.
