Job Description

Alion Science and Technology is seeking an Intern who will perform advanced artificial intelligence (AI) research and development (R&D) as part of a research team, in support of one or more of a wide array of application areas, including autonomy, sensor augmentation/computer vision, virtual opponents for military training, natural language processing, cyberdefense/cybersecurity, and command decision support.

This onrolling position seeks current undergraduate or graduate students with skills and experience in AI-related fields.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Research state-of-the-art algorithms in machine learning, particularly deep learning, to identify viable approaches to significant unsolved challenges for Alion's clients.
  • Design solution prototypes that connect data sources through the selected algorithms to a concrete use case.
  • Develop code to implement the algorithms, and test their efficacy and efficiency against real-world data.
  • Deploy the solution in a production environment, if appropriate to the specific project, in collaboration with the relevant Alion team and client.

Education and Experience:

Must have a high school diploma or GED and must be enrolled in a degree-granting program at an accredited public or private college or university.

Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • Proficiency with a modern programming language appropriate for machine learning and deep learning prototyping; Python is preferred, but skill in other languages such as JavaScript and R may demonstrate the necessary ability.
  • Proficiency in the underlying mathematics of deep learning, particularly linear algebra and multivariate calculus.
  • Knowledge of data structures and data management methods, and the ability to analyze a problem and determine an efficient structure for the task.
  • Ability to communicate technical topics effectively to both technical and nontechnical audiences.
  • Ability to read, understand, and apply technical papers and articles in research journals.
  • Ability to work independently and collaborate effectively with a project team in a research environment.
  • A proactive and curious problem-solving approach. Ability to obtain a security clearance after employment.

Desired Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • A successful project in machine learning, particularly deep learning, that demonstrates the ability to create and train end-to-end solutions combining data preparation, advanced analysis, and useful outputs.
  • Experience with deep learning frameworks and libraries, particularly TensorFlow, Keras, Caffe, or Torch.
  • Experience with Jupyter notebooks or NVIDIA DIGITS.
  • Familiarity with probability theory, computational complexity theory, and optimization theory.
  • Experience using NVIDIA GPUs for deep learning training, particularly cuDNN.
  • Experience with cloud computing and storage services, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud; specific experience with machine learning and deep learning capabilities on those platforms is preferred.
  • Experience with containerization technologies, particularly Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Experience with web technologies for human-machine interfaces or experience with lower-level programming for embedded systems.

Security Clearance: None
