Summer Internships 2014
Vision and Graphics

Microsoft Research, Redmond, has several openings for summer internships in computer vision and graphics. For over 20 years, interns at MSR have been conducting innovative and influential research published in top-tier conferences such as CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, NIPS and SIGGRAPH. We count among our intern alumni numerous leaders in both academia and industry. We are looking for the next generation of experienced and highly motivated students to conduct leading research in a variety of areas in computer vision and graphics, including (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • object detection and tracking
  • 3D reconstruction
  • feature learning
  • computational photography
  • behavior recognition
  • image enhancement and image processing
  • recognition and matching
  • image-based rendering
  • optimization algorithms
  • interactive graphics and vision

We are located on Microsoft's campus in Redmond, near Seattle, Washington. We strive to make our internships fun (group activities - enjoy the beautiful pacific northwest!), productive (good research with publications), and profitable (salary, subsidized housing and transportation, etc.).

The members of the Interactive Visual Media group are:

  • Simon Baker: vision, recognition, tracking
  • Michael Cohen: graphics, computational photography
  • Piotr Dollar: vision, recognition, machine learning
  • Celso Gomes: interactive graphics and vision, photography, pattern recognition, image processing visualization
  • Sing Bing Kang: vision, image and video enhancement, image-based modeling and rendering
  • Wolf Kienzle: vision and graphics development, machine learning, pattern recognition
  • Johannes Kopf: graphics, computational photography
  • Krishnan Ramnath: vision and graphics development, object recognition
  • Sudipta Sinha: vision, image-based modeling and rendering, 3d reconstruction
  • Eric Stollnitz: vision and graphics development, photography
  • Rick Szeliski: vision, graphics, computational photography, 3d reconstruction
  • Matt Uyttendaele: vision and graphics development, panoromic stiching, photography
  • Larry Zitnick: vision, object recognition, optical flow, computational photography and stereo vision

In addition we are looking for interns for the MIC and Graphics groups.

How to Apply

If interested, please provide a CV along with two letters of recommendation to Microsoft's online internship application site. In addition, please complete and submit the internship survey detailing your research interests and availability. Your application will not be complete until you complete both the official application and the survey. If you have additional questions you may contact Piotr Dollar [pdollar--at--microsoft.com], the subject of all messages concerning your application should be "Internship: [firstname] [lastname]", e.g., "Internship: Charles Darwin".

We are looking for PhD students with a proven publication record or exceptional masters students. Internships offers will be made on a `rolling' basis so it is to your advantage to apply early. Priority will be given to applications submitted prior to Jan. 31st. The hard deadline for applying is March 1st and we expect to have all responses out in March. Note, this announcement only addresses candidates applying to computer vision and graphics internships at MSR's Redmond campus for either the spring or summer of 2014.
