Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory



Collaborations with Students and Postdoctoral Researchers

LLNL has a variety of opportunities for college internships and postdoctoral research appointments in the signal & image sciences.

College Internships

College internship assignments through the Student Internship Program pertaining to the signal and image sciences are typically available during the summer academic break, although co-op and year-round internships may also be offered.

The Lawrence Scholar Program selects top Ph.D. students in science and engineering to conduct research of interest to the Laboratory while completing their thesis.

Additional internship opportunities are available, sponsored by outside agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Military.

In the Spotlight

Md. Zahangir Alom

My summer project involved exploring deep learning approaches (Convolutional and Deep Neural Nets) for classifying NIF laser beams. Experimental results demonstrate promising classification accuracy when compared to traditional machine learning approaches such as Support Vector Machines. My supervisor and the rest of the NIF team were great to work with, and LLNL is a great place for summer internship.

Md. Zahangir Alom is a Ph.D. student at the University of Dayton and is researching deep learning algorithms.

George Labaria

My summer project involved creating a new robust image registration algorithm for analyzing image-plate data captured from the Neutron Imaging System and the Combined Neutron and X-Ray Imaging diagnostics at the National Ignition Facility (NIF). My supervisors, Judy Liebman and Abbie Warrick, and the NIF Team were great to work with and I learned a lot in the process.

George is a Ph.D. student at UC Santa Cruz and his research is focused on developing a stochastic model for the nucleotide addition cycle for replicative DNA polymerase enzymes.
