The Krell Institute is an established manager of two of the nation’s top graduate fellowship programs, helping train the next generation of leaders in science and technology.
But that’s not all we do.
Krell also has developed science and technology educational materials and published computational science websites and magazines. We’ve organized scientific meetings and other events, large and small. Krell and affiliated organizations also are leading an initiative in open-source supercomputing-toolkit development.
Krell Institute has managed the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) since 1997, covering every detail from applicant recruitment to academic oversight. The program provides tuition, stipends and other benefits to doctoral students and guides them as they employ high-performance computing for discovery in disparate disciplines. More than 375 fellows have studied at over 50 universities around the country and nearly 80 fellows are presently enrolled. The Department of Energy’s Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration support the fellowship.
Krell Institute has managed the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration Stewardship Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE NNSA SSGF) since the program’s 2006 founding, providing complete services from recruiting to stipend and tuition management to academic oversight. The DOE NNSA SSGF supports doctoral students in areas important to maintaining the U.S. nuclear deterrent, including nuclear science, high energy density physics and materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics. More than 20 fellows currently attend universities across the United States. The program has nearly 40 alumni.
Open to second-year graduate students and beyond, the DOE NNSA LRGF's primary objective is to encourage the training of scientists by providing financial support to talented individuals whose study and research is accompanied by extended, practical work experience at one or more of four DOE NNSA facilities. Launched in November 2017, the DOE NNSA LRGF's first class of fellows will begin their studies in the fall of 2018.
Krell produces ASCR Discovery, a webzine highlighting projects in computational science – the use of computers to gain insight into scientific questions – that are supported by the Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research in the Department of Energy Office of Science.
DEIXIS Online is the frequently updated companion to the eponymous annual publication of the Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, which Krell manages for the Department of Energy. DEIXIS covers the latest computational science breakthroughs at DOE national laboratories.
Open|SpeedShop, an open-source performance analysis software tool, is the product of a multi-year partnership between the Krell Institute, the Department of Energy and its Office of Science, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), and Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories. It targets applications running on both single-node and large-scale Intel, ARM, Intel Phi, PPC and GPU processor-based systems, for both IBM and Cray platforms. Krell technical staff have developed the tool with support from the NNSA and the Office of Science.
