The North Dakota Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, known as ND EPSCoR, has awarded four NDSU students with graduate student cyberinfrastructure assistantships.
ND EPSCoR’s Graduate Student Cyberinfrastructure Assistantship program on the NDSU campus is designed to increase understanding of advanced research hardware and software computing for NDSU graduate students, provide cyberinfrastructure support to NDSU researchers and help develop educational modules, which will be used to train undergraduate and graduate students and faculty at NDSU, the four North Dakota University System primarily undergraduate institutions and the five tribal colleges located in North Dakota.
The four NDSU graduate student awardees and their advisers are:
• Xiaowei Chen, electrical and computer engineering, Jinhui Wang, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering
• Jonathon Edstrom, electrical and computer engineering, Na Gong, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering
• Jingyan Fu, electrical and computer engineering, Wang
• Russell Hofmann, chemistry and biochemistry, Mukund Sibi, University Distinguished Professor of chemistry and biochemistry
The recipients will work 10 hours each week in the NDSU Center for Computationally Assisted Science and Technology and 10 hours per week with their department supervisor.
North Dakota EPSCoR is a federally and state funded program designed to increase the competitiveness of North Dakota for merit-based grants and contracts in support of research in the STEM disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
