The Post-Bachelor program is a summer school program of HGS MathComp in cooperation with the international summer school of Heidelberg University. Students in their last year of bachelor or immediately after their bachelor studies are invited to join an interdisciplinary summerschool for mathematics and computer science.
The program consists of two phases:
- The first phase (2-3 months) has an intense focus on teaching and exercises in mathematical modelling, numerical mathematics, image processing and scientific computing.
- The second phase (optional; in August) is a culture and language training in cooperation with the central summer school of the university.
HGS MathComp invited candidates from all over the world to join this program as guest students of the graduate school. The training duration can be negotiated individually, but must last at least six weeks.
The school negotiates coverage of all fees, travel expenses, insurance and accommodation on an individual level with each applicant. Several sponsoring programs (Heidelberg University, DAAD, ...) are included to ensure maximum coverage of all costs.
Students from HGS MathComp cooperation institutes as well as candidates from higher education institutions around the world were invited to apply. The program was first run in 2013 (see list of participants 2013) and will be continued in 2014 and 2015.
Remark: The program is implemented with a mirror program at the research cluster CellNetworks. The conditions for participation are similar - if your research interests are in the area of cellular biology, you might also want to check out their post bachelor program.
