-2010 Summer internship positions- 

 

US working permit is required for the following positions!

 

1. Software Specification and Testing 

 

The Mobile Services Lab at DOCOMO USA Labs is looking for a bright and
motivated candidate to work on an applied research project related to
handset specification and testing. The multiplicity of handsets and
heterogeneous software stacks add unique challenges to the software
assurance problem in this domain. We are interested in building software
specification and testing frameworks and researching new techniques in
this area, that take into account the particular software production and
distribution models supported by a mobile operator. The selected
candidate will work closely with a team of researchers on the project,
and will have the opportunity to enable direct industrial impact through
their work here, in addition to any publications that may arise out of
the work. A strong background in one or more of the following areas is
desirable: formal methods, programming languages, and software testing.

 

Interested candidates must be pursuing an M.S. or Ph.D. degree in CS or
EE, and must have strong research experience. A strong programming
background is also essential. The ability to work well with a team is
expected. 

 

Applicants must have, or should be able to obtain, the relevant
authorization to work as an intern in a U.S. company.

 

Applications and enquiries should be sent to

2. Mobile Usability 

 

The Mobile Services Lab at DOCOMO USA Labs is looking for a bright and
motivated candidate to work on a systems project aimed at fostering a
mobility-centric lifestyle. The number of cell phone users is constantly
on the rise worldwide, and an increasingly larger percentage of them use
cell phones for daily tasks. However, the small form-factor of mobile
devices, as well as the design of software user interfaces and available
services can be a limiting factor impacting the usability of cell phones
for daily activities. Our work focuses on approaches for improving
mobile usability through service and interface design and analysis, that
can be adopted by a mobile operator towards consumer-centric solutions.
The selected candidate will work closely with a researcher, and will
have the opportunity to enable direct industrial impact through their
work here, in addition to any publications that may arise out of the
work. A strong background in one or more of the following areas is
desirable: usability, mobile user interfaces, user-centric service
design, natural language processing, data mining, and web-based
middleware.

 

Interested candidates must be pursuing a Ph.D. degree in CS or EE, and
must have strong research experience. A strong programming background is
also essential, and Experiences with the mobile Web and/or
browser/server extensions are big pluses. The ability to work well with
a team is expected.

 

Applicants must have, or should be able to obtain, the relevant
authorization to work as an intern in a U.S. company.

3. Content Analytics 

 

The Mobile Services Lab at DOCOMO USA Labs is looking for a bright and
motivated candidate to work on technologies related to content analytics
to facilitate new classes of mobile applications. By now, cell phones
are the world's largest and most widespread computing platform, and have
access to unique context and sensor information that is accessible to
mobile applications through middleware APIs. Today, consumers express
their intent either in natural language by using communication channels
like email, SMS, status updates, etc., or by directly interacting with
the interface of software applications. This project will investigate
techniques for analyzing the content created by mobile consumers in
interacting with other consumers or with software applications, with the
goal of connecting the intent expressed in natural language with
software application interactions and vice versa. The selected candidate
will work closely with a researcher, and will have the opportunity to
enable direct industrial impact through their work here, in addition to
any publications that may arise out of the work. A strong background in
one or more of the following areas is desirable: natural language
processing, data mining, intelligent agents, cognitive modeling,
artificial intelligence.

 

Interested candidates must be pursuing a Ph.D. degree in CS or EE, and
must have strong research experience. A strong programming background is
also essential, and Experiences with the mobile Web and/or
browser/server extensions are big pluses. The ability to work well with
a team is expected.

 

Applicants must have, or should be able to obtain, the relevant
authorization to work as an intern in a U.S. company.

4. Adaptive Approximations of Visual Data 

 

The Mobile Services Lab (Media Technology Project) at DOCOMO USA Labs is
seeking a strong PhD student for a summer internship position.

Many types of signals can be modeled as arising from known families of
approximation spaces. Yet there are many other signals for which such
models do not hold. In this project we will construct adaptive
approximations for "difficult" signals by developing highly nonlinear
analytical and algorithmic techniques. The project will allow us to
better understand the statistical nature of visual data so that we can
design better processing algorithms targeting mobile augmented reality
applications.

 

<Required Qualifications>

-PhD student in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or Mathematics

-Very strong mathematical skills

-Very strong knowledge of basic signal and image processing techniques

-Excellent programming skills in C/C++ 

 

Applicants must have, or should be able to obtain, the relevant
authorization to work as an intern in a U.S. company.
