The Interaction & Experience Research (IXR) group in Intel Labs is currently accepting applications for a User Experience Design intern who is currently enrolled a master's or PhD program and matriculating toward a degree. The successful candidate will be joining a world-class team of industry researchers with a wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds, including: social scientists, design researchers, interaction designers, human factors engineers, strategic planners, technology innovators, hardware engineers, and computer scientists. The Intel Labs intern will work with a collaborative team to design and rapidly prototype (hack) proposed user experiences for the team to evaluate and in order to further the Lab's research agenda.
This is a full-time, paid position. The length of the internship is 12 weeks over the summer; the details of start- and end-dates will be coordinated with other interns working on the same program. Candidates must be willing to relocate to the Santa Clara, California (or, where applicable, to Hillsboro/Portland, Oregon) area for the duration of the internship. Relocation assistance is available through Intel.
Job responsibilities will include but will not be limited to:
