Subject: 11.06.07 2011 Computational Chemistry and Material Science (CCMS) Summer Institute at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
We are pleased to announce the 2011 Computational Chemistry and Material
Science (CCMS) Summer Institute: Materials Research for Energy at Lawrence
Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The goal of the Summer Institute is
to provide an opportunity for graduate students to explore and learn some
of the cutting-edge methods in computational materials sciences,
computational chemistry, and other related areas of computational science
during their early years of graduate study.

Each student will spend ten weeks at LLNL as the guest of an LLNL host
scientist, working on a computational materials research project related
to energy.  In addition, renowned experts in the field from major research
universities and national laboratories around the country will present a
series of mini-courses for the student fellows. These courses will cover
state-of-the-art and emerging computational methods in materials research
for energy. There is a great deal of excitement in the computational
science community for investigating various aspects of materials for
energy-related problems. At the same time, there is an urgent need to
train the next generation of scientists in the use of the latest
computational methods and approaches for solving these challenging problems.

LLNL is one of the leading national laboratories of the US Department of
Energy, and is well known for its state-of-the-art computational science
capabilities. Summer fellows will be selected from among an open pool of
applicants who have demonstrated a strong interest in computational
sciences, especially materials science, physics and chemistry. The
Institute will run from June 7 to August 12, 2011. Travel funds and a
generous stipend will be provided to the participants. In order to be
considered, prospective participants will need to fill out an application
form that can be found at the following website:

 http://www.llnl.gov/ccms/

The application deadline is January 31, 2011.

Attached,  please find a PDF version of the CCMS Summer Institute
announcement. We would greatly appreciate it if you could bring this
announcement to the attention of graduate students that you feel would
benefit from the experience of hands-on research in computational
chemistry and materials science, working with leading researchers at a
national laboratory.

Additional details about the summer institute can be found on the website
listed above.
