Bell Labs Summer Intern
Do you want to change the world? Do you want to invent the future? Are you looking for meaningful real-world experience? Then Nokia Bell Labs, the Nobel Prize winning research organization, is for you. We are currently accepting applications for our intern program.
Nokia Bell Labs is building the future – connecting all humans, all senses, all things, all systems, all infrastructure, all processes. Discovering the possibilities that shape the human experience are at the heart of everything we do. Our interns will have the opportunity to learn from and work with industry leading experts, and the best and brightest minds, who solve the most formidable challenges confronting our world through disruptive innovation and research.
Projects for the 2021 internship cover technologies such as 5G&6G, augmented intelligence, smart devices, IoT, data analytics, robotics, AI, cloud technologies and more…
As well as providing hands-on educational and collaborative experiences for a pool of talented and highly motivated students, our internship program will expand your field of study by exposing you to an unparalleled diversity of people, expertise and perspectives. In classic Bell Labs style, you will leave changed forever by an experience that will redefine your future.
The current Internet of Things (IoT) era, bolstered by the rapid expansion of 5G networks, seeks to integrate every place, thing, and person into a connected global network of everything. By the time we reach the 6G era 10 years in the future, the level of hyper-connectivity we’re witnessing today will move beyond simply linking “things,” extending directly to the human body and mind. The Cambridge Augmented Human Devices Group at Nokia Bell Labs aims to develop the devices and artificial intelligence that will seamlessly integrate human physiology into this network and create the future Augmented Human. This involves developing innovative materials, devices, and machine learning techniques that can continuously and non-invasively interface, sense, and actuate the human body.
To this end, we are seeking highly motivated, talented and enthusiastic students to take part in this year’s Bell Labs Summer Internship Program, ideally designed for graduate students (or exceptional undergraduates with research experience). Based on performance, candidates may also be considered for full-time employment. Students will have the opportunity to learn and work with world experts, while contributing to the on-going efforts with their expertise and experience in a classical Bell Labs-style setting.
Interns will have an opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary research group, with access to equipment and expertise in the areas of chemistry, optics, electronics, human-machine interaction, and artificial intelligence. Depending on the intern’s interest and academic/research experience, interns will have a chance to partake in one of the following projects:
- Aid in the design and field testing of next-generation devices for wearable human sensing, asset tracking, and/or environmental monitoring. Opportunity to work on Enterprise and Industrial IoT use-cases, on either the hardware, embedded AI, and/or software level.
- Explore machine learning techniques for non-invasive blood pressure monitoring using novel devices previously built in the group. Experience with AI/ML for time-series data and electronic prototyping skills desired.
- Formulate and explore practical human surface sensing biomaterials for the optimization of skin-electrode interfaces. Looking for an experimentalist with a background in material science, biomedical engineering; background in polymer engineering is a plus.
- Explore deep learning approaches to interpreting human physiological time series data for various sensing applications. Focus on automated feature extraction and classification via convolutional and/or recurrent neural networks. Looking for experience in machine learning, data analytics, and biology.
- Overall GPA of 3.0/4.0 or above.
- Must be enrolled as a full-time student, ideally in a PhD program.
- Must be pursuing a degree in Biochemistry, Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Nanotechnology, Computer Science, or related field from an accredited college/university.
