Internship at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems

The MPI-IS Tübingen is offering a paid internship in a project on machine learning-enabled fiber optic sensor conducted by a multidisciplinary team of researchers. The successful candidate will work in the Optics & Sensing Laboratory and with researchers in the Department of Haptic Intelligence.

 

The Max Planck Society is Germany’s most successful research organization. The Max Planck Society conducts basic research in the natural sciences, life sciences, and humanities. Since its foundation in 1948, eighteen Nobel laureates have emerged from its ranks.

The research team consists of expertise in mechanical design and manufacturing, machine learning, and quantum optics. The project aims at designing, building, and testing a novel shape sensor based on quantum dots embedded in an optical fiber and machine learning used for signal processing. The position is available starting from June 2020, for a period of 4-6 months (part-time/full-time) and will be open until filled.

Application process is ongoing.

Main criteria

  • Experience in at least one of the following fields is required: machine learning techniques, deep neural networks, signal processing, optics and laser spectroscopy, quantum dots
  • Excellent English skills and communication skills
  • To apply for this position, please provide a cover letter, CV and information on potential referees
