Please be prepared to describe in detail your previous experience with HPC systems (e.g., size of simulations, kind of systems, experience as user and/or developer, software and solvers used, etc.) and your future CSE plans on leadership-class supercomputers.
2. Curriculum Vitae (CV)
The submitted CV must provide all science and technology specialties, all work positions with no gaps in time, and current/accurate names of all academic institutions attended.
3. Letter of recommendation (LOR)
One letter of recommendation from an advisor or supervisor. The recommendation should address in detail your experience with respect to the eligibility requirements.
- Note: if your advisor or supervisor wants to make a confidential recommendation, they should send it directly to email@example.com before the submission deadline.
