Bell Labs Math & Algorithms Intern

Position: Bell Labs Math & Algorithms Intern
Duration: 10 Weeks
Date: June 3 to Aug 9, 2024.
Location: Hybrid


The team you'll be part of

Mathematics and Algorithms Group

We're a team of applied mathematicians and computer scientists working on machine learning fundamentals as well as applications to communication systems and services.  Our research spans information/communication theory, mechanisms for self-organizing networks, and AI/ML in services including the development of deep language models.

Education Recommendations

Currently, a candidate for a Ph.D. degree in communication theory, machine learning, or optimization with a minimum of a master's degree or equivalent in computer science, applied mathematics, electrical engineering, operations research, computational physics or chemistry, and other related STEM subjects with an accredited school in the US.


We have 3 teams that will host interns in the summer. 

As part of our A1 team, you will:

  • Work collaboratively with a mentor or mentors to solve a research problem in one of the areas listed below.
  • Meet regularly with your mentor to review progress and work on the problem.
  • Digest research literature, and prove analytical results.
  • Carry out and analyze analytical results or simulation-based experiments.

 As part of our A2-A3 team, you will also:

  • Analyze deep learning algorithms theoretically and empirically
  • Build machine learning solutions to real-world industry problems


We expect you to have:

  • Strong analytical skills
  • Clear written and spoken communication skills
  • Ability to carry out independent research

For the A1 team, it would be desirable for you to have

  • Wireless communication theory
  • Convex optimization and related topics
  • High-level programming languages (Python and/or MATLAB)
  • Modern machine learning methods
  • High-level machine learning packages (Pytorch, TensorFlow, etc)
  • Published research in a scientific conference or journal

For the A2-A3 team, it would be desirable for you to have

  • Basic understanding of machine learning and associated concepts (features, dimensionality reduction, embedding, etc.)
  • Experience with deep learning frameworks such as PyTorch or Tensorflow, and a good understanding of basic deep learning algorithms and neural network architectures
  • Interns are encouraged to engage in the writing of final results in scientific papers


Why we're awesome

Nokia offers flexible and hybrid working schemes, continuous learning opportunities, well-being programs to support you mentally and physically, opportunities to join and get supported by employee resource groups, mentoring programs and highly diverse teams with an inclusive culture where people thrive and are empowered.


Company Culture: We believe our people are our greatest asset and we aim to foster a fun, challenging, positive, and inclusive work environment. We offer 1-on-1 mentorship, learning and development opportunities, global impact and interaction, and flexible work/life balance.
