Technical Assistant # 1

Date: December-4-2015

The Camera Culture group at the MIT Media Lab focuses on making the invisible visible – inside our bodies, around us, and beyond – for health, work, and connection. The goal is to create an entirely new class of imaging platforms that have an understanding of the world that far exceeds human ability and produce meaningful abstractions that are well within human comprehensibility. The group conducts multi-disciplinary research in modern optics, sensors, illumination, actuators, probes and software processing. Some ongoing projects include creating novel feature-revealing computational cameras, developing new lightweight medical imaging mechanisms and using virtual reality interfaces to augment experiences in a clinic.

Camera Culture group at MIT Media Lab is seeking a talented and creative electrical engineer to contribute to the development of healthcare solutions.

Technical Assistant (Hardware/Firmware) role involves building tools for real time data acquisition using customized hardware. This position entails design and implementation of modules for (a) real time modulation of actuators and (b) capturing data from multiple sensors such as IMUs, gyroscopes and cameras.  We will use languages such as Embedded C and Java and rely on tools such as Arduino IDE, android dev tools. Final deliverable will be collection of software tools for multimodal data capture using embedded technologies.

Responsibilities

  • Develop real time applications which run on custom hardware and acquire data in real time. (Custom hardware can be based on ATMEGA/RasPi)
  • Agile software development and hardware prototyping with a weekly cycle to build small modules quickly.
  • Fulfill several project requests simultaneously while meeting tight deadlines
  • Advise, collaborate with, and synthesize feedback from researchers and members from across the group.

Minimum qualifications

  • BS degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, related field or equivalent practical experience.
  • Programming experience using C and Java in Embedded settings
  • Knowledge of I/O related issues in hardware in high bandwidth capture
  • Basic knowledge of algorithms

Preferred qualifications

  • Low level arduino IO with bit manipulation in ASM, Arduino ISP programming.
  • Hardware I/O using multiple platforms such as Android, Raspberry Pi and arduino
  • Experience with motor control boards, actuators and IMUs in performance intensive frameworks (such as Quadcopter implementation)
  • Proven ability to collaborate with designers, researchers, and engineers to develop new solutions.

Camera Culture group at MIT Media Lab is seeking a talented and creative electrical engineer to contribute to the development of machinelearning and software platforms for clinical data.

Technical Assistant role involves conceptualizing and building tools for visualizing and classifying high dimensional data.  As a Technical Assistant in our group, you will have a critical role in developing software tools with applications in data annotation, visualization, machine learning and health diagnostics. We will use languages such as C++ and python and leverage existing libraries such as OpenCV, Theano and Caffe. Final deliverable will include a platform for multimodal data capture, annotation, classification and visualization.

Responsibilities

  • Build software iteratively with focus on engineering independent modules.
  • Agile software development with a weekly cycle to build small modules quickly.
  • Fulfill several project requests simultaneously while meeting tight deadlines
  • Advise, collaborate with, and synthesize feedback from researchers and members from across the group.

Minimum qualifications

  • BS degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, related field or equivalent practical experience.
  • Programming experience using C++, Python and Matlab.
  • Knowledge of basic data structure algorithms and their implementation using C++/Python.

Preferred qualifications

  • Knowledge of basic tools for visualization of audio-visual data.
  • Experience using Kinect libraries for Linux/Windows data acquisition
  • Experience with LibSVM, Caffe or Theano
  • Proven ability to collaborate with designers, researchers, and engineers to develop new solutions.
