posted Apr 26, 2017, 10:27 AM by XRG-EECS UCBerkeley

Paid Summer Internship Opportunity in SF Bay Area/Lake Tahoe
This is a paid internship offering a young web developer the opportunity to work closely with a seasoned entrepreneurial team headed by a Harvard MBA/former CEO of a successful Bay Area company. 
Silicon Valley-based new venture in the trek and travel space, launching our website in late 2017.  While our principal website developer used Word Press to build our site, there is one key element of the site (social network) to be built using Buddy Press, a Word Press-related plug-in.  Intern will work closely with CEO and senior team to develop this part of the site either in the Bay Area or in Lake Tahoe where the team is based most of the summer.  Intern may also interact with Chicago-based Buddy Press consultant.  Experience and technical ability in website development are preferred, but we will consider someone who’s highly motivated and creative but lacks experience.  Someone with an entrepreneurial bent and interest in the outdoors will benefit most from this valuable opportunity.  CEO is a UC Berkeley graduate.

2017 Summer Research Internship Job at IBM Research Africa- Kenya


Job Description

Are you looking for an adventure? Come work with us in Africa. Where else can you work on evolving cognitive solutions for a smarter planet in healthcare, financial inclusion, blockchain, government, water, agriculture, and education, during the week and then go on Safari on the weekend?
We’re looking for PhD level graduate students with strong programming skills and experience in areas such as data mining, optimization, machine learning, computer vision and deep analytics. Our research focuses on furthering the state of art in these areas from a scientific point of view as well as applying them to solve the real-world problems encountered by IBM's customers and the larger ecosystem. The challenges faced by telcos, schools, small farm investors, banks, utilities, governments, and donor agencies motivate our work. Undoubtedly, these challenges are complex and hard enough for the state of the art in industry tools, systems, and platforms. Therefore, the projects you will work on will involve developing new approaches, techniques, and tools to tackle the problem at hand by working with world-class scientists. It is expected that work in these areas will lead to high quality research. However, the ultimate goal is to solve the real-world problems faced by the local context in Africa, and to scale for replication around the world.
IBM’s Smarter Planet journey began more than four years ago and took on added significance when the IBM Research – Africa Lab was announced in Nairobi, Kenya. It is the 12th IBM Research lab and our first lab dedicated to a whole continent. The lab is located on the campus of the Catholic University in the Karen-Langata area in Nairobi. Our goal is to maintain IBM's world-class research culture while evolving commercially viable innovations that impact people’s lives.

Join us for summer 2017. To begin the process, please send your cover letter and CV. We will begin reaching out to qualified candidates immediately.
