Summer Internships at Sun Microsystems Laboratories (Chelmsford, MA)
Sun Microsystems Laboratories (Chelmsford, Massachusetts, 25 minutes
from Boston) is seeking students to fill summer internships within the
Conceptual Indexing project, a research project that focuses on the
use of natural language processing and knowledge representation
techniques to improve information access.

We are seeking individuals to contribute to the development of
technologies for intelligent document analysis as well as to the
design and implemention of a prototype for an information service
which helps bridge people through shared interests. Much of the
software will be written in Java with some external extensions to C
and C++ systems. The position requires object-oriented development
experience (non-classroom experience perferred), good design practices
and principles, and the ability to learn quickly and interact well
within a project group. The candidates will be expected to
participate in ongoing design discussions and take responsibility for
the completion of well-defined modules within the proposed system. A
strong interest in one of the following areas is required: natural
language processing, knowledge representation, information retrieval,
user-interface design and the World Wide Web. A candidate should be
able to demonstrate strong creativity as well as a good intuition for
software design. Position is open to graduate students as well as
exceptional undergraduates.
