Job Description

IBM Research is the innovation engine of IBM. Nearly every game-changing breakthrough in the information technology industry has its roots in an IBM Research lab. It has been a home for creative scientific minds since 1945, when Thomas J. Watson Sr. established the first corporate pure science research lab in the U.S. We are primed to define the future of technology for many years to come specifically around the world of Artificial Intelligence. We believe AI will transform the world in dramatic ways in the coming years – and our Research AI group is advancing the field through our portfolio of research and through collaboration with like-minded institutions including MIT (MIT-IBM Watson Lab - and individuals to push the boundaries of AI faster – for the benefit of industry and society.


The IBM Research – Visual AI Lab is looking for research scientists who are as passionate as we are about Artificial Intelligence, advancing science, and designing interpretable algorithms and visual interfaces to help invent the next generation of AI.
