Scalable Thermography

Our research group (the Makeability Lab in the HCIL) is investigating new, scalable methods and tools for thermographic data collection and analysis. We are looking for talented, creative, and self-motivated undergraduate research assistants with strong technical backgrounds and an interest in environmental sustainability to work on a new, easily deployable thermographic sensor.

We are specifically looking for student volunteers interested in developing valuable hardware and software skills over the course of the academic year while supporting an ongoing research project. Interested students should have one or more of the following skills and a keen interest in expanding their abilities in some of the other areas:

  • Experience working with single-board computers and accessories
  • Experience designing front-end and back-end web components
  • Experience prototyping applications with Android devices
  • Eagerness to learn and make with rapid prototyping technologies
You will be working in the HCIL Hackerspace, will attend weekly research meetings, and will join a team of other talented undergraduate and graduate students. Our short term goal is a publication at CHI2017 and a potential submission to UIST2017.

For best consideration, please read this page about undergraduate research and then send your CV and unofficial transcripts to mattm401@umd.edu and CC jonf@cs.umd.edu by September 21st. We will contact a subset of qualified candidates to setup interviews and request other materials. Full details are available on our announcement webpage.

Please feel free to forward this announcement.
