The Center for Computational Mathematics (CCM) aims to become a leading international center for the study of applied mathematics, machine learning, signal processing, numerical analysis and related fields. Tremendous opportunities exist at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, statistics, and their scientific applications, with the lines between theory, algorithm development and software implementation often blurred. A major goal of CCM is to develop the next generation of simulation and analysis methods and to make them available to the scientific community. CCM has vibrant scientific interactions with the other four centers at the Flatiron Institute and hosts an array of meetings and workshops.
A seasonal, full-time research internship position is available at CCM to work on projects relating to signal processing and machine learning. In particular, this will involve implementation of scattering transform networks as part of the Kymatio toolbox (see https://kymat.io).
This is a paid position. Applicable travel assistance and a supported temporary housing option are available.
