ORISE Scholarships
Due April 3rd
Technology plays a key role in many fields, but it is not without limitations. Although technology has helped to make great advancements in data collection, there are times that the instruments themselves interfere in the measurements. The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) is hosting a problem-based challenge for undergraduate students.  The challenge for undergraduates is to identify a situation in which an instrument interferes with its own measurements and data collection, and to propose a solution to the problem . Your proposal could win you a $5,000 scholarship! The deadline for this competition is Wednesday, April 3, 2019, and winners will be announced in early May.

1st place: $ 5,000 scholarship
2nd place: $ 3,000 scholarship
3rd place: $ 1,000 scholarship
Jobs and Internships
Graduate Research Assistant
Funding (stipend and tuition) is available for a student wishing to pursue a Master’s degree. This graduate research assistant (GRA) position deals with highly quantitative information, and spans detailed simulation and modeling, and data analysis. A requirement for this type of work is proficiency in computer programming. Proficiency in a (any) programming language. Position will use Matlab extensively, and Fortran as well for some projects. A background in C or C++, or another scripting language (i.e. Python or R), would also be valuable. 

The simulation and modeling projects will require physics and biology for simulating vegetation and soil processes. Some background in physics is preferred, and the typical background of an engineering student is likely sufficient for this. Fluid mechanics can be a plus for specific projects that they might take on, and if a particular interest in computational fluid dynamics there are potential projects that could make an excellent fit. Some basic background in biology or ecology is good, but not required. 

Students more interested in data analysis than simulation and modeling would need a programming background, and a background in statistics as the data analysis / machine learning approaches require the extensive use of statistics.

A 3.0 GPA is required. The GRE must be taken—no minimum score required. Contact Candy McBride
