Research Scientist Intern

Job Description

The Parallel Computing Lab (PCL) in Intel Labs is seeking a graduate intern in the area of parallel computing research. PCL investigates emerging compute- and data-intensive applications in areas such as artificial intelligence, traditional high-performance computing, big data computing, computational biology, physical simulation, and large-scale optimization problems. We work in close collaboration with leading academic and industry co-travelers to understand the hardware and software architectural implications for Intel's parallel processing platforms. The intern will be expected to focus on a specific project of mutual interest focusing on a target research problem in this space.

In this position, you will be responsible for implementing, researching, and prototyping new algorithms, architectures, and approaches. You will develop state-of-the-art software and hardware systems with the goal of integrating these systems in the open-source ecosystem and Intel's future product lines. You will identify and research promising technologies typically 3-5 years prior to product development. This requires an understanding of computer architecture, benchmarking, and parallel programming. You may also participate in the development of intellectual property, but it is not required.

Behavioral traits that we are looking for:

  • Motivated individual who can take initiative and perform research independently
  • Excellent problem-solving skills
  • Excellent written and spoken communication skills

This is an internship position and compensation will be given accordingly.

Preferred qualifications are in addition to the requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience listed below would be obtained through a combination of your schoolwork and/or classes and/or research and/or relevant previous job and/or internship experiences

Minimum Qualifications:
The candidate must be pursuing a Bachelor's degree, Master's Degree or Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or other related areas.

1+ years of experience in below areas:

  • Software development skills using C/C++
  • Parallel algorithms and programming


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Demonstrated experience with processor simulators
  • Demonstrated experience in parallel workloads (e.g., machine learning, scientific computing, data analytics)
  • Tier-1 conference submissions (e.g., ISCA, MICRO, ASPLOS, ICML, NeurIPS, Supercomputing, VLDB) and/or technical reports.
