PyLith code development and modeling NSF/USGS internship

NSF has developed several programs that provide *supplemental funding* 
to current grants to be used to support graduate student research at 
federal agencies, such as the USGS. We have received approval for an 
internship associated with PyLith code development and modeling. A 
graduate ​student ​would ​spend up to 12 months in Menlo Park working 
​closely ​with ​the ​PyLith ​development ​team ​to ​adapt ​PyLith to 
​meet ​the ​demanding ​modeling ​needs ​of ​the ​student’s ​research. 
​​The student ​would ​then ​use ​this ​expanded ​set ​of ​capabilities 
​to ​simulate earthquake- ​or ​volcanic-related ​crustal ​deformation 
​processes ​to answer ​a ​specific ​scientific ​question ​of ​interest 
to the student. ​The ​desired ​outcome is ​that ​the ​student ​expands 
​their ​software ​development ​and ​numerical modeling ​skills, ​adds 
​features ​to ​PyLith, ​which ​can ​be ​leveraged ​by the ​broader 
​community, ​and ​makes ​a ​larger ​scientific ​step ​forward than ​the 
​student ​would ​otherwise ​be ​able ​to ​achieve.

Interested students are strongly encouraged to contact Brad Aagaard 
(baagaard at usgs.gov) for more information and discussion of proposed 
projects.
