In every paper or public presentations, please give credit to the agency or agencies supporting your research.
This work was supported [in part] by the Department of Energy, Office of Science, Materials Sciences or by the National Science Foundation.
Simulations were performed at the Ohio Supercomputer or NCSA.
AWG is indebted to fellowship support by the OSU Presidential Fellowship or the NSF.
As some time you will need access to faster machines or, more likely, parallel ones. See platforms for information on the various machines.
OSC requires a proposal for access to any machine. By OSC rules, I have to be the PI. But I give you free access to the account, and don't interfere. You are the master of hours granted to you. In particular, you are responsible for not exceeding the service units granted before you have filed a renewal proposal.
See my secretary for access to previous OSC proposals. A request for 10 hours is simple and automatically granted. Such a short grant can be used to develop timing/performance information needed in a proposal for more hours. Don't take the sample proposals away; study them in the library. Copy of a relevant one and return the original to the file. Often a colleague who wrote the proposal can spply a TeX/LaTeX file to get you started.
Migrating to NPACI machine or other facility (see web links on my home page) require more detailed proposals. However the timing/performance experience at OSC will make writing those proposals relatively straight forward. Usually, those facilities do not require me to be a PI and such an award often is a young investigator's first evidence of the ability to independently get external support.
The OSU graduate school has all sorts of competitions for graduate students. While I don't require it, I strongly recommend students applying for any relevant awards. The best of these is the Presidential Fellowship that supports the final year of graduate study. This proposal works best when the research has been fortunate enough to generate papers early in the career.
The normal expectation is that every student will have the experiences described below:
These are listed in the proposal section, since they typical involve some proposal -- either to attend or to fund the opportunity. Usually the student plays a large role in the proposal writing.
For postdoc with me longer than two years, I strongly recommend applying for federal or other funding. I will reward a credible, completed proposal with a promotion and/or salary increase. I will assist in writing the proposal. Please see me.
