The Department of Mathematics at Emory University has two funded positions for an undergraduate summer research project in mathematical methods for data science. This year's project aims at developing novel deep learning algorithms to process and analyze Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) automatically.

The students will be hosted on Emory's main campus in Atlanta, GA, for eight weeks during the summer. Students are expected to start on June 8. Participants will work independently on this research project under the guidance of mathematics professor Dr. Lars Ruthotto, in collaboration with Dr. John Oshinsky from Emory's Department of Radiology.

We particularly encourage women, students from underrepresented groups or institutions, and first-generation college students to apply.

Applicants should have a strong background in applied mathematics (including numerical linear algebra, differential equations, optimization, ...) as well as technical skills (most importantly, programming skills in pyTorch or Julia). Other optional but highly valued skills include parallel computing, GPU computing, optimization, partial differential equations. In addition to writing a paper, students are expected to produce high-quality codes for their numerical experiments.

Supported participants will receive a stipend of 3,000 USD, travel support of up to 1,000 USD, and free on-campus accommodation.

**Application Materials:**

All applications must be submitted through [mathprograms.org](https://www.mathprograms.org/db/programs/945). Screening of applications will begin immediately, and all applications received by March 15 will receive full consideration.

- Curriculum Vitae - Research Statement (discussing experiences and skills related to the program, motivation for the program, career goals,...) - Transcript (unofficial ok) - Two Reference Letters (to be submitted by the reference writers at this site)


- Students must be enrolled in an undergraduate program at a US institution. US citizenship or permanent residency is not required. - Students must be available full-time during the period of June 8 - August 3. - The program primarily targets undergraduate students majoring in mathematics or applied mathematics or computer science with advanced standing, but we encourage all science majors to apply.
