This page lists paid research assistantships (RAs) in the Stanford Computer Graphics Laboratory. These positions are open to all qualified Stanford students (but only to Stanford students).
We take on new CS PhD and EE MS/PhD students every year, usually during the Autumn quarter, If you are a graduate student looking to join our research group, or an undergraduate looking for a CS honors thesis topic, we encourage you to look through our list of current research projects, and then come chat with us. We are currently looking for students to join the Light Field Microscopy or Camera 2.0 projects.
Every year, we hire a number of undergraduate research interns through the Computer-Science Undergraduate Research InternShip (CURIS) program. These internships include free on-campus housing, full board, and a stipend. Below is the description of a project for the Summer 2010 CURIS program. This project is also listed on the CURIS website. Students wishing to apply for this job should follow the instructions posted there. In addition, feel free to contact Marc Levoy or visit during his office hours, Tue/Thu, 4:15pm - 5:30pm, Gates Hall, room 366.
We are building programmable cameras. One of them (the Frankencamera F2) looks like an SLR and takes Canon lenses, but is programmable right down to its autofocusing algorithm. The other (an Nokia N900 camera phone with a custom software stack) has hardware not found in conventional cameras: GPS, compass, accelerometer, Wifi, Internet, 3D graphics, etc. What new photography apps do these platforms enable? Help us explore this new frontier, by building cool apps for programmable cameras. Our long-term goal is to make all cameras open-source, with downloadable plugins and apps.
