Description

There are openings for several graduate and undergraduate students to assist a group of faculty with a multi-campus project involving virtual reality (VR) and simulation modeling that was recently funded in the third cycle of Penn State’s Strategic Initiative Seed Grants. Successful applicants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at any Penn State campus. Prior experience with immersive technologies such as VR and/or discrete event simulation software (especially Simio) is a plus. These are part-time appointments working for a period of 48 weeks, with a possibility of an extension depending on needs and availability of funding. Tentative start and end dates are March 18, 2019 and February 16, 2020, respectively. Time commitments will be approximately 10 hours per week and students may work remotely. For consideration, in addition to the Penn State employment application, applicants should also submit a resume and a cover letter describing any past experience with immersive technologies and/or discrete event simulation. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. For more information, please contact the primary supervisor for these positions, Dr. Ashkan Negahban, at anegahban@psu.edu.
