Job Description


We are seeking an Intern \- Virtual/Augmented Reality Software Developer R&D Undergraduate Summer\.

The Department of Homeland Security \(DHS\) Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction \(CWMD\) counters attempts by terrorists or other threat actors to carry out an attack against the United States or its interests using a weapon of mass destruction\. The Technical Reachback Project provides support to DHS CWMD by using data, collected over many years from radiation monitors on highways, airports, and seaports, to develop products that enhance the ability to recognize anomalous radiation profiles in trucks, cars, and shipping containers\. The Technical Reachback Project is exploring using mobile phone VR to create 3D visualizations of data to highlight patterns, anomalies, relationships, and/or trends\. The project is also exploring using smartphones equipped with Google’s Tango platform to allow fusion of the 3D environment with detected radiation information to find radiation sources, extract distance or shielding information, and monitor exposure, among other things\.

On any given day, you may be called to:

+ Create augmented reality apps, for example to “see” the effectiveness of shielding
+ Create 3D visualizations of radiation data


You bring the confidence and skills to be eligible for the job by meeting these minimum requirements:

+ Currently attending and enrolled full time \(or scheduled to graduate in the spring\) in an accredited undergraduate program
+ Pursuing a science, engineering, or math major
+ Minimum cumulative GPA of 3\.0/4\.0
+ Ability to work up to 40 hours per week during the summer
+ U\.S\. citizenship

Note: If you have not yet started your undergraduate program, please apply to a high school intern position\.

**Additional Requiremnets**

+ Majoring in computer science, game development, or related field
+ Experience writing code
+ High interest in developing software in augmented/mixed reality, computer vision, or related fields
+ High interest in developing software to visualize data
+ Experience with Unity or Unreal or OpenGL


+ Experience with building mobile apps \(Google Android, Apple iOS, Apple Swift, Objective C\) is a plus\.
+ Experience with a modern Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality/Mixed Reality technology \(Oculus Gear VR, Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard, Google Daydream, Google VR SDK, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Microsoft HoloLens, Apple ARKit, Google Tango, React VR, or WebVR\) is a plus
