Radiant Earth Foundation's core mission is to make insights from Earth observations and machine learning an order of magnitude and more accessible for global non-profits, humanitarian organizations, emerging economy governments and others. We are actively working to develop training datasets and models through an open source hub, Radiant MLHub, that supports global missions like agriculture, conservation, and climate change. Radiant Earth also fosters a community of practice to develop standards around machine learning for Earth observation and provide information on the progress and innovation in the Earth observation marketplace.

In addition, we work with organizations on complex use cases with high-impact outcomes. Since our founding in 2016, we've worked with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Omidyar Network, Schmidt Futures, McGovern Foundation, the World Bank and more.

We are looking for a passionate intern to join our team and work on a novel machine learning application using Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN). The project involves researching latest developments in using GANs on satellite observations as well as designing and implementing different GAN architectures for generating synthetic multi-spectral data.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Candidates must be currently enrolled in an accredited academic program (pursuing a Master’s or Doctoral degree) in Computer Science, Remote sensing, Environmental Science, Geography, Atmospheric Science or a related discipline;
  • Deep knowledge of machine learning and deep learning techniques;
  • Experience in building Generative Adversarial Network models;
  • Experienced in Python programming;
  • Experienced working with deep learning libraries such as TensorFlow or PyTorch;
  • Excellent communication skills and know how to operate in a startup environment;
  • U.S. work authorization is required for this opportunity.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experienced with Python libraries for geospatial data (e.g. GDAL, rasterio, shapely, geopandas, and xarray);
  • Experience in large-scale processing and analysis of remote sensing / geospatial data.

What we offer:

  • Competitive compensation
  • Flexible working hours

COVID-19 Impact:

Due to the restrictions implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, you will be working with the team remotely.
