Science Research Engineering Internship, London

London, United Kingdom


DeepMind is the world leader in artificial intelligence research and its application for positive impact. We’re on a scientific mission to push the boundaries of AI, developing programs that can learn to solve any complex problem without needing to be taught how.

If we’re successful, we believe this will be one of the most important and widely beneficial scientific advances ever made, increasing our capacity to understand the mysteries of the universe and to tackle some of our most pressing real-world challenges, from climate change to radically improved healthcare.

At DeepMind we have a myriad of teams such as Robotics, Science,  Fundamental Research and the Research Platform Team who will all be welcoming Interns in 2019 for durations of 14 - 20 consecutive weeks.

The Role

Our Research Engineers work on a diverse and stimulating range of projects, including developing algorithms and prototype learning applications, providing programming support to research projects, conducting deep learning analysis on medical images or deploying machine learning models for real-world impact.

As a Science Research Engineering Intern at DeepMind, you'll join a group of research scientists and software engineers exploring the possibilities of AI-assisted scientific discovery. Targeting complex domains, where vast amounts of data is available and accurate simulations are possible, we apply AI to accelerate research within the natural sciences. You will collaborate with researchers and software engineers to develop and run experiments exploring new applications of AI to science problems. The team is pioneering in many different domains so you may take part in exploratory work validating early ideas or work in a maturing area to deepen and exploit a promising line of research.

About you

If you are interested in natural sciences and are currently studying physics, chemistry or structural biology (minimum requirement of Masters or equivalent, PhD preferable) and have experience in writing performant computer programs then this is a great opportunity to apply machine learning to science problems.

** Applications are open from 4 - 18th February 2019. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept any applications made after the 18th February. **

DeepMind welcomes applications from all sections of society.  We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, religion or belief, ethnic or national origin, disability, age, citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other basis as protected by applicable law.  If you have a disability or additional need that requires accommodation, please do not hesitate to let us know.
