Criteo Research is offering Intern Scientist positions at all of our Research centers-
Palo Alto (USA), Paris (France) & Grenoble (France) for 2017. Interested candidates
can email us with their location & duration preference. An internship will run for a
minimum of three months
What is the minimum qualification?
Criteo Research is looking for candidates currently enrolled in a PhD program with
preference given to candidates who are in the 3rd year of the program or greater.
We will also consider final year MS students, in France, who are interested in
following-up with a CIFRE engagement.
What will the Intern Scientists work on?
Criteo Research works on a slew of challenging research
problems in real-time bidding, large-scale recommendation,
learning representations/embeddings, scalable machine
learning, auction theory, reinforcement learning etc. All of our
research problems are inspired by real/practical problems that
we encounter in our production systems. Thus, our work is not
only academically motivating but practically useful as well.
Our goal during the internship is to help intern candidates appreciate the
complexities of working in a production system while solving a research problem
that is close to their existing research work. A successful internship for us is one
where the intern works with their mentor on a well-defined goal that either has
product impact and/or results in a publication in an accredited conference. Towards
this end, we customize our internship project to each intern rather than forcing
interns to work on pre-specified topics.
