The Virginia Tech College of Engineering is excited to continue its US National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported programs for a paid opportunity for US students (US citizen, national, or permanent resident) enrolled at a US university for research at France’s Grenoble Institute of Technology for about 8 weeks in summer 2023. Research topics will be related to cybersecurity, control, and communication for the power system and inverter-based resources.
Students will receive research mentorship from our Grenoble colleagues (Prof. Nouredine Hadjsaid, Prof. Jean-Luc Schanen, and team), visit several partner industries, take French language courses, attend seminars, participate in professional development workshops and cultural events, and present their research results in a mini-symposium.
We will cover the travel expenses and a stipend:
- Two-way airfare;
- Insurance; and
- A stipend of $500 per week.
More information and the application form are available at http://pinnacle.mehrizisani.com/. The application deadline is February 27, 2023. If travel is restricted, the programs will run remotely.
If you know students who might be interested in this program, we would be thankful if you could forward this note to them.
We gratefully acknowledge the support from the NSF International Research Experience for Students (IRES) program under award OISE-2107163 (PINNACLE).
