[DMANET] Call for applications: Graduate-Level Research in Industrial Projects for Students (G-RIPS) Berlin

Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite applications for the 2016 G-RIPS program, jointly
organized by Zuse Institut Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Institute
for Pure and Applied Mathematics (LA, USA), and the Research Campus
MODAL Berlin.

Deadline for application is 15 April 2016.

We would be grateful if you could forward this email and/or display our
poster ([1]) at a prominent location to attract the attention of
interested Master and Ph.D. students.

For more information and application, please see below ([2]) and visit
the project website:

Students with a background in combinatorial optimization, linear and
integer programming may be particularly interested in the RailLab
project with the project partner Deutsche Bahn [3].

[2]: The Graduate-Level Research in Industrial Projects (G-RIPS) Program
provides an opportunity for high-achieving graduate-level students to
work in teams on a real-world research project proposed by a sponsor
from industry or the public sector. Each G-RIPS team is comprised of
four international students (two from the US and two from European
universities), an academic mentor, and an industrial sponsor. The
research problem is always a real problem of serious interest to the
sponsor and that offers a stimulating challenge to students.

Most of these projects involve both analytic and computational work. The
students, with direction from their academic mentor and industrial
sponsor, will learn about the problem, master the latest analytical and
computational approaches and techniques to solve it. At the end of the
program, the teams will present the results of their work and prepare a
final report. English is the only language required for participation.
