The Data Science and Systems Security Department (http://www.nec-labs.com/research-departments/data-science-systems-research/data-science-systems-research-home) aims to build novel big data solutions and service platforms that simplify complex computer systems management, and to develop new information technology that supports innovative applications, from big data analytics to the Internet of Things. Our research is both experimental and theoretical, covering many domains in data science and systems research, such as: time series mining, graph mining, text mining, anomaly detection, signal processing, cloud computing, data centers, software-defined networking and streaming processing. The goal of our research is to fully understand the dynamics of big data from complex systems, retrieve patterns to profile them and build innovative solutions to help end user managing those systems. We have built a number of analytic engines and system solutions to process and analyze big data and support various applications in detection, prediction and optimization. Our research leads to both award-winning NEC products and publications in top conferences.
Currently, the group has multiple fall/winter intern positions available for self-motivated graduate students in the area of artificial intelligence, machine learning and data mining. Interns are expected to conduct research with massive data from physical and IT systems and build applications to solve real and complex problems.
• Be pursuing a PhD degree in Computer Science or related field.
• Publication records in machine learning and data mining (topics of deep learning, text mining, NLP and time series analysis are particularly preferred).
• Strong hands-on experience with deep learning frameworks (pytorch, tensorflow).
• Proficiency in at least one modern programming language such as Java/Scala/Go/C#/Python on Unix/Linux.
• Strong written and verbal communication skills.
NEC Laboratories America is located in Princeton, NJ, home of Princeton University and one of New Jersey's most beautiful and idyllic towns. The area offers many exciting cultural, entertainment and outdoor activities. The office is minutes away from Princeton University and an hour from New York, Philadelphia, and the Atlantic Ocean.
