Niantic's Research and Development team is seeking post-MSc or 
PhD-students, who are passionate about inventing new algorithms, to join 
us for a 3-month research internship to work on computer vision and 
learning, alongside our growing team of researchers in central London. The 
projects you will work on fit under the broad umbrella of artificial 
intelligence for augmented reality, including deep or shallow machine 
learning models, tracking, 3D reconstruction, localization, and graphics 
for mixed reality. We invite you to explore the best problems in vision 
with us.

Apply here: 
Applications received by 1st February 2019 will receive priority 

- You will dig deep into a fun computer vision and machine learning topic, 
becoming the expert and breaking new ground.
- You will discover ways to automatically understand imagery and/or 
telemetry from the real world, to track, reconstruct, localize, 
synthesize, or recognize more accurately or more efficiently.
- You will work alongside our other researchers, accepting help and aiding 
others, to make discoveries that will eventually help the Niantic Real 
World Platform, as it gets deployed for Niantic and outside developers 

- Completed the requirements for an MSc and/or are enrolled in a PhD 
program, in computer science or a related field, with focus on computer 
vision, robotics, AR, or machine learning.
- Experience building your own software systems in Python or C++, 
wrangling 2D and/or 3D data, training models, and running experiments.
- Proficient at finding, reading, and efficiently critiquing and 
experimentally assessing published research papers.
- Experience writing technical papers in English for a scientific 

Plus If...
- You have had 1+ papers accepted to ICCV / NeurIPS / IROS / ISMAR / 
SIGGRAPH type conferences.
- You have experience building fast or efficient computer vision systems.
- You have experience designing your own architectures within a deep 
learning framework (e.g. PyTorch, Tensorflow, or similar).
- You have collected and curated your own raw data.
