The Mobile and Sensing Systems Group (MASS) at Microsoft Research Asia is investigating some of the most exciting research problems arising from mobile and sensing systems and applications. Given the ubiquity of networked sensors and actuators, proliferation of smartphones, and ever-increasing urgency to address societal scale challenges, we believe future mobile and sensing systems will have a significant impact on our everyday lives, from environment, to health, energy, productivity, and entertainment.
We are currently working on a number of topics, including mobile systems, sensor networks, localization, energy efficiency, participatory sensing, activity recognition, and smart buildings. More information about our research can be found by checking individual projects, reading our publications, or by contacting our group members.
We are looking for exceptional full-time researcher and research interns to join our team. For more information, please refer to our job description. To apply, please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org, and copy one of our group members. We are particularly interested in candidates who can demonstrate high quality research taste, deep analytical skills, and strong first-hand system building experience.
