Internship (Algorithm 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. You will contribute to research in data
stream processing that is conducted in the area of distributed data analytics.

Your task:
- Implement a stream-processing algorithm, which was developed in-house
- Benchmarking
- Visualization
- Compare the implementation with other existing algorithms on a variety
of metrics

Required background:
- Functional programming in Scala or Haskell

- Experience implementing algorithms based on a mathematical specification
or pseudocode
- Algorithms/Machine Learning, in particular clustering
- Stream processing, in particular Apache Spark - Structured Streaming
- Data visualization, in particular Matplotlib

Your ideal profile:
- Chalmers student at the Master's level, preferably in the penultimate year
- Pursuing a degree in Computer Science or a related field
- Previous work experience in the software industry or as a student research
- Ability to work independently

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
