I recently received an announcement about a summer research opportunity that brings together students from many disciplines to work on issues in the computational sciences. From the announcement:
The Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) at Louisiana State University (LSU) provides an ideal setting for the REU student to become familiar with interdisciplinary research. With research groups exploring gravitational waves, complex emergent phenomena in material science, or computational music, the participants work on cutting edge research in Computational Sciences.
The students learn how to use the most current cyberinfrastructure tools with individually designed training sessions targeted to their specific degree of preparation. In addition, since most CCT research groups collaborate with international researchers, REU students are exposed to how international collaborations work.
One of the possibilities is to work in computational astrophysics!
For details, navigate your way to the program website. The deadline for applications is February 15.
