Research Programmer Internship

The Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) invites applications for a research programmer for the project “Personalized AutoNomous Agents Countering Social Engineering Attacks (PANACEA).” The position would be 15-20 hours per week in the Fall 2018. The project focuses on technology for protection of users against social engineering attacks.

Please respond to: bdorr@ihmc.us, abhatia@ihmc.us, adalton@ihmc.us

We seek students with a background in computer science. Specialty areas that are a plus are Computational Linguistics, Cognitive/Social Science, Computer Security, Information Retrieval, Data Modeling, or a related discipline. General requirements: The successful candidate is seeking a Bachelor’s degree in one of the aforementioned areas, has strong programming skills and is interested in research, and possesses excellent writing skills. Proven experience with developing computational techniques and models from unstructured data is a plus. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the research project, the successful candidate is willing and able to work across disciplinary boundaries.

What we offer:
IHMC is a not-for-profit research institute of the Florida University System and is affiliated with several Florida universities. Researchers at IHMC pioneer technologies aimed at leveraging and extending human capabilities. Our human-centered approach often results in systems that can be regarded as cognitive, physical, or perceptual orthoses, much as eyeglasses are a kind of ocular orthoses. These systems fit the human and machine components together in ways that exploit their respective strengths and mitigate their respective weaknesses. The design and fit of technological orthoses and prostheses requires a broader interdisciplinary range than is typically found in one organization, thus IHMC staff includes computer scientists, cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, physicians, philosophers, engineers and social scientists of various stripes, as well as some people who resist all attempts to classify them. Our work is exciting and our standards are high. If you are one of the special few with the passion, skills, and desire to be a part of our team, send us an email. The project will be carried out in collaboration institutions leading in cyber security, natural language processing, sensor fusion, and event forecasting.

Applications should include:
– A cover letter (maximum two pages),
– Curriculum Vitae,
– Names of two references.
