    • SP1366: Robust Machine Learning

      MERL is seeking a highly motivated and qualified intern to work on robust machine learning techniques. The intern will collaborate with MERL researchers on developing novel approaches to address the problem of adversarial examples. The ideal candidate would have research experience in robust machine learning methods and defenses against adversarial examples. A mature understanding of modern machine learning methods, proficiency with Python, and familiarity with deep learning frameworks are expected. Proficiency with other programming languages and software development experience is a plus. Candidates at or beyond the middle of their Ph.D. program are encouraged to apply.
