PI4-IMA Summer Internships are supported by the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) and organized by the Program for Interdisciplinary and Industrial Internships at Illinois (PI4), a successful internship program for graduate students run by the Mathematics Department at the University of Illinois over the past six years, with support from the NSF. With the new funding from the IMA, we are pleased to broaden the availability of internships to students from other institutions.
Four Internships are available for mathematics graduate students in Summer 2019. The internships will be hosted by companies and scientific labs in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois.
Coding skills and soft skills training will be provided as a part of the program. Interns will be placed in pairs where possible to ensure a productive and enjoyable internship experience.
The program begins with a 12 day intensive workshop on linear algebra and computational skills, focusing on Python and R. Prior coding experience is not required.
Industry and government internship hosts in previous years have included: Ameren Innovation Center, Bud Analytics Lab, Wolfram Research, Personify, Caterpillar Data Innovation Lab, and the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District. Scientific hosts have included the University of Illinois departments of Entomology, Speech and Hearing Science, Industrial Engineering, and more.
