The Systems and Data Analysis department at the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre for Industrial Mathematics intends to hire a student for an internship. You would be working under my supervision and contribute to the development of a platform for distributed data analytics by creating a web-based interface. The goal of this internship is to create a more intuitive alternative to the existing command-line interface.

Internship (Web Development) at the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre for Industrial Mathematics
The Fraunhofer-Chalmers Research Centre for Industrial Mathematics (FCC)
offers software, services and contract research for a broad range of
industrial applications. Modelling, simulation and optimization of products
and processes can boost technical development, improve efficiency and cut
costs of both large and small businesses. Since 2001, our highly skilled team
of mathematicians and engineers has successfully solved problems for more than
170 clients. We combine consultancy services with innovative research and
development based on a wide spectrum of competences.
We are looking for an ambitious student with a background in computer science
or related fields to assist in an ongoing applied research project in the
Systems and Data Analysis department.
We have been developing a prototype for distributed data analytics. Currently,
the end user interacts with it via a Python library that is accessed through
a terminal window. In order to improve usability, we would like to add a HTML5-
based front-end to this system.
- Understanding of concurrency and asynchronous execution
- Experience with Python
- Awareness of Erlang
Your ideal profile:
- Chalmers student at the Master's level, preferably in the penultimate year
- Pursue a degree in Computer Science or a similar field
- Able to work independently
- Previous work experience in the software industry or as a student research
If you maintain a private code repository (Github, Gitlab, Bitbucket etc.),
then please highlight this in your application. If you have other samples of
work to show, such as a portfolio of projects on a blog or private website,
we would be keen to have a look.
This internship is a paid part-time (4h/week) fixed-term position until the
end of December 2018, with the possibility of extending the contract. The
starting date is flexible.
