Summer job in DNV Norway*
If your ambition is to make a real difference and seek opportunities beyond business, this could be the perfect start for your career.*
The maritime autonomy team at HÃ¸vik is now searching for summer students to join us working with state of the art ship autonomy development for the summer 2022.
Autonomy is expected to have major impact on how we move goods and people around the world in the future. The Norwegian industry is a major player within ship technology and is currently spearheading the development of autonomous and remotely operated ships. DNV is a part of this and with our purpose of safeguarding life, property and the environment we are preparing for a reality where autonomous and remotely operated systems impact how the world shipping fleet is operated.
The Maritime Transportation programme in Group Research and Development (GRD) is currently researching situational awareness for autonomous and remotely operated ships. Situational awareness refers to the ability of the ship to perceive its surroundings using sensors which is a prerequisite for automated navigation and collision avoidance. Machine learning algorithms will be an integral part of this system, and research is focused on how we can make sure such systems are safe to use. Relevant topics are; explainable AI, interpretability of deep neural nets and their predictions, safety testing with limited specifications and data, and detection of high confidence mistakes, with the goal of developing the rules and assurance procedures necessary for the adaptation of autonomous ships in a commercial setting.
As a part of our team, you can expect to work within interesting and highly relevant topics such as deep learning, interpretability and explainability of deep learning systems, computer vision and sensor fusion algorithms, aligned with the needs and research interests at DNV. It is preferable that you have some programming skills and a bonus if you have some experience with computer vision, sensor fusion and machine learning algorithms from studies, previous summer jobs or extracurricular activities. It will also be regarded positive if you are interested in writing your project- and/or masterâs thesis on a related subject. Researchers from DNV can offer co-supervision and support to such work and provide data and equipment as necessary.
Managers will select summer students based on their business needs aligned with your education, experience and background. In the application letter, please formulate how you believe you can contribute to the ongoing research within the aforementioned subjects during the summer. How does your research interest fit with the goals and topics of the summer job? Please also indicate your master program specialization and/or main area of study during the application process.
