Title: Student Research Programmer
Company: UIUC HCI
Contact: Joshua Hailpern <jhailpe2@xxxxxxxxxxx> 914-282-0316
Hiring for:  Part-time Intern/Co-op
We are collaborating with Google on a new type of desktop searching
technique.  Unlike traditional search, which focuses on algorithms and
keywords, this approach is centered around trying to model the way human
memory works.  The resulting system we will be building with be a new
computer desktop tool (for MACs) that presents these results in a
completely new interface due to the different type of search parameters
and output.  

The project is an HCI project, so we will be focusing heavily on
interface design (about half of the project) and we also be researching
how the human mind remembers where and when they used different computer
files/programs to create our search system.

Hiring for:  Part-time Intern/Co-op
Hello ACM,

We are looking to a Cocoa programmer to aid in our HCI research project
called Tapestry; helping people better understand their computer usage

creation.  Tapestry is a project that we are collaborating with Google
on, so your work has the potential to have some real impact!

Collaboration will be compensated through either credit, thesis or
hourly payment.  In addition, you will be listed as an author on
publications and credited with code produced. Financial payment will be
based upon your current education level, and prior employment with the

Title: Software Engineering Intern - Summer - North America Locations
Company: Google Inc.
Contact: Davidson Young <davidsony@xxxxxxxxxx> 6505345004
Hiring for:   Intern/Co-op
Positions available in Atlanta (GA), Austin (TX), Boulder (CO),
Cambridge (MA), Chicago (IL), Irvine (CA), Montreal (Quebec), Mountain
View (CA), New York (NY), Pittsburgh (PA), Santa Monica (CA),
Seattle/Kirkland (WA), and Waterloo (ON).

The area: Software Engineering

Google's Software Engineers research and develop the next-generation
technologies for which we've become world-renowned. In addition to
revolutionizing search technology, we're applying our world-class
programming skills to create innovative applications to organize the
world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Collaborating in small, agile teams, we do rapid development, testing,
and monitoring work &amp;#8211;producing an environment that combines
invigorating feel of a start-up company with the resources and stability
of a healthy, established business.

The role: Software Engineering Intern

Software Engineers at Google are researchers and developers who yearn to
create and implement complex computer science solutions. Our engineers
develop massively scalable, distributed software systems and also
collaborate on multitudes of smaller projects that have universal appeal
- which requires research, awareness, interactivity, and asking
questions. You build strong competencies in data structures and
algorithms, along with a technical fascination for how stuff fits
together. You need to have a solid foundation in computer science in
order to consistently come up with new ideas as well as strive for a
deep understanding of our products and services in order to continually
improve upon them. We focus on being a collaborative, global
organization consisting of engineers with the highest levels of
technical depth, programming skills and a passion for quality.

As a Software Engineering intern, you could end up working on our core
products and services or those that support critical functions of our
engineering operations. Depending on your background and experience, you
will be working on a project in one of the following areas:
Product and Systems Development

Whether it's finding new and innovative ways to advance search quality,
building computing platform and networking technologies, automating the
indexing of videos, or continuing to refine and scale complex auction
systems (just to name a few), you will be developing solutions to some
of the most challenging technical problems out there. You will research,
conceive and develop software applications to extend and improve on
Google's product offerings and collaborate on scalability issues
involving access to massive amounts of data and information.

Test Engineering

As an intern in the Test Organization, you'll use your software design,
analysis and programming skills to create innovative automated test
systems. This isn't an internship in which you'll simply debug and run
test cases, in fact that only scratches the surface. The test team
undertakes a broad range of challenges on a daily basis, designing and
building intelligent systems that can explore various use cases and
scenarios for distributed computing infrastructure. Just imagine trying
to design and build an automated testing system for something that's
never been done before. There are no text books that can help you learn
this, which is why we have some of the best and brightest engineers
working in this group.

Site Reliability

Interns working in Site Reliability are involved in every facet of
Google's production site. You are in the thick of everything involved
with keeping Google running, from code-level troubleshooting of traffic
anomalies to maintenance of our most cutting edge services; from
monitoring and alerts to building new automation infrastructure. You are
a genius at jockeying networks and administering UNIX clusters. You will
tackle challenging, novel situations every day, and work with just about
every other engineering and operations team in the process.

* Specific responsibilities vary by project area.

* Currently pursuing a BS, MS or PhD in computer science or a related
technical field.
* Experience in systems software or algorithms.
* Excellent implementation skills (C++, Java, Python).
* Knowledge of UNIX/Linux or Windows environments and APIs.
* Familiarity with TCP/IP and network programming a plus.
