Nokia is a global leader in the technologies that connect people and things. With state-of-the-art software, hardware and services for any type of network, Nokia is uniquely positioned to help communication service providers, governments, and large enterprises deliver on the promise of 5G, the Cloud and the Internet of Things. Serving customers in over 100 countries, our research scientists and engineers continue to invent and accelerate new technologies that will increasingly transform the way people and things communicate and connect.
Help change the way people connect with the world…
Bell Labs, the Nobel Prize winning research organization, is accepting applications for our competitive internship program.
Bell Labs defines Nokia’s technological and architectural vision for the ICT industry, identifies the key challenges in this vision and invents solutions that are an order of magnitude (10X) better than existing solutions. It advises the industry on the economics of the vision and underlying technologies, and how best to transform to most efficiently achieve the goals. Driving thought leadership among customers and the industry strengthens Nokia’s role as a market leader and creator.
Discovering the possibilities that shape the human experience are at the heart of everything we do. Our interns will have the opportunity to learn from and work with world experts, and the best and brightest minds, who solve the most formidable networking and communications challenges confronting our world through disruptive innovation and research.
Our researchers are continually massively scaling the capabilities of networks from the data center to the end device, to change the way we live and work, by inventing breakthrough technologies to make networks and systems faster, smarter and greener.
As well as providing hands-on educational and collaborative experiences for a pool of talented and highly motivated students, our internship program will expand your field of study by exposing you to an unparalleled diversity of people, expertise and perspectives. In classic Bell Labs style, you will leave changed forever by an experience that will redefine your future.
Access: Project topics include new breakthrough technologies for the communications systems that directly connect with end users, wireless in 5G radios, transceiver design, massive MIMO, and communications theory, new disruptions in faster fiber and fiber-like speeds over copper to enable seemingly infinite capacity and edge clouds for low latency computing.
Application Platforms & Software Systems:
The Application Platforms & Software Systems Research Lab is inventing exciting technologies that will give people the one resource that is not renewable and cannot be created - time!
We do this by building software platforms that provide magical experiences. We make the magic possible by mastering the fundamentals of software methodologies, software design, and system implementation. We believe in theory and running code.
For 2019, we are particularly looking for students with interests and skillsets in AI/ML systems, software systems for robotics, data systems, and new paradigms for software development/testing.
Algorithms, Analytics, & Augmented Intelligence: Project topics include developing disruptive, breakthrough solutions to critically hard industry problems, accomplishing this in network protocols, algorithms addressing networks and other complex systems, data and user-security, network control systems, and useful and real-time analytics.
Smart Network Fabric: The Smart Network Fabric Lab delivers innovations which significantly improve the scale, flexibility, automation and agility of IP and optical networks. Projects in this area may include increasing optical data rates using novel spatial and signal processing techniques, flexible control of IP and optical networks as they evolve from best effort networks to deterministic networks, and novel applications of IP and optical innovations in data centers, access/edge clouds, metro and wide area networks.
E2E Network and Service Automation: Project topics include how mobile networks are used, through creation of future-proof, adaptive and massively scalable End-to-End solutions. Developing new architectures exploiting 5G and beyond.
Emerging Materials, Components and Devices: Project topics include solving the great device challenges of the future. Research areas include III-V devices, silicon devices, hybrid modules, and emerging materials.
Industry Standards: Project topics include defining the technology and architecture vision of Nokia and the industry by providing the architecture guide, developing standards, creating intellectual property assets, and providing compliance and reliability testing.
Experiments in Arts and Technology: Project topics include focus on coordinating all the interactions with artists, including managing the Artist in Residence (AIR) program, and will optimize the connection to, and utilization of, Bell Labs innovations in these collaborations.
Standardization Research: Projects focused on dedicated standards-related systems research in the areas of 3GPP Access & Core and Network Automation.
BHAG Realization: Project topics to include the development and realization of new Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) solutions that will redefine augmented human and machine intelligence.
Bell Labs Consulting: Project topics include Telecommunications network analysis, Web development, and Market research & benchmarking.
