Title: Programmer
Company: UIUC
Contact: Roberto Galvez <RGalvez@xxxxxxxxxxxx> 244-0391
Hiring for: Part time
Description:
Job would require a knowledge base in LabView and, we believe, Computer
Vision/ OpenCV.  We are a Behavioral Neuroscience laboratory and are
currently using a LabView program to deliver  appropriately timed TTL
pulses to deliver training stimuli.  The program currently also infers
eye-blinks from an infrared sensor.  This job would entail modifying the
current program to detect eye-blinks from a video source rather than the
infrared sensor.

Title: Software Engineer
Company: Twitter
Contact: William Ellis <williamellis@xxxxxxxxxxx> (415) 298-4568
Hiring for: Full time, Intern/Co-op
Description:
Twitter is on campus September 7th (evening) through 12th. We're looking
for interns and full-time hires in software engineering (both
applications and infrastructure) and data scientist positions. As a fast
growing company in the public sphere with many startup and research
veterans from all over, we think Twitter would be a very good place to
launch your career. Plus, we're located in the heart of San Francisco
near transit, not some boring suburb.

Twitter will be at Expo in Monday (all the way over at ARC!), and we
will be doing talks at Monday Sept. 8 at 6pm in 2405 Siebel (on helping
mobile developers succeed) and Wednesday Sept. 10 at 7pm in 1013 ECE
Builiding (on streaming data processing with Summingbird).

If you'd like to get in touch with us but miss out on these
opportunities, please email ssundresh@xxxxxxxxxxx and
williamellis@xxxxxxxxxxxx
