Research Assistant (RA) positions are available for self-motivated and dedicated Ph.D. students with strong MPI or CUDA programming experiences. If you are interested in high performance computing, feel free to contact me.


Job Prospects

U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-11 Edition reports that "Computer scientists should enjoy excellent job prospects. Graduates from Ph.D. programs in computer science and engineering are in high demand, and many companies report difficulties finding sufficient numbers of these highly skilled workers." "Median annual wages of computer and information scientists were $100,660 in May 2010", and "the highest 10 percent earned more than $153,120."
