As Austria's largest research and technology organisation for applied research, we have set ourselves the goal of making substantial contributions to solving the major challenges of our time, climate change and digitisation. To achieve our goals, we rely on our specific research, development and technology competencies, which are the basis of our commitment to excellence in all areas. With our open culture of innovation and our motivated, international teams, we are working to position AIT as Austria's leading research institution at the highest international level and to make a positive contribution to the economy and society.

Our Center for Digital Safety & Security located in Vienna invites applications for an internship. Our Competence Unit for Cooperative Digital Technologies is leading in applied research on the development of data-based IT solutions for various application scenarios, including the design of new and innovative solutions supporting communities in increasing their resilience and achieving their sustainable development goals (SDG). As a reliable partner of industry and public authorities, we work on digital tools for a sustainable and resilient society based on current research results and in collaboration with end users and our customers. The focus of our applications is on climate change impact assessment and the protection of society during crises and disasters.

Specifically, our Responsive Sensing and Analytics team is developing efficient and scalable algorithms to provide emergency services with the necessary safety-relevant information and analysis results based on sensor and IoT systems on unmanned robots or aircraft (drones) in the event of the release of biological, chemical or radiological hazardous substances (CBRN), for example in the event of disasters.





Under the guidance of our interdisciplinary team, you will develop and/or assess methods and algorithms for 3D scene analysis and modelling in the context of unmanned vehicle supported emergency operations.

In particular, you will develop, improve, or assess real-time capable methods related to point cloud classification / segmentation, point cloud registration / fusion, or 3D change detection. Your work may also involve the creation of a simulation environment for testing purposes. Your exact assignment will be subject to your skillset and personal preferences.

You will gain practical experience with one of the leading research companies in Austria.

You support us in our national and international projects and get exciting insights into our technological environment.

You will have not only the opportunity to discuss your work experiences and results with experienced scientific peers, but also to connect with other Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD students.


Your qualifications as an Ingenious Partner:

Completed Bachelor’s degree and enrolled in your Master’s studies in the field of computer science, mathematics, physics or similar

Good programming skills in Python, C++ is a plus

Prior experience in at least one area: Point cloud classification, point cloud registration / fusion, change detection, 3D mapping / modelling

Experience with ROS and simulation software such as Gazebo is an advantage

Experience in machine learning frameworks (PyTorch, TensorFlow) is a plus

Special interest in applied research and analytical mindset

Ability to work in a team, flexibility and commitment

Good verbal and written English skills, German skills would be a plus


What to expect:

Duration of the internship: minimum 2 months

Start date: spring/summer 2024 – However there is some flexibility concerning the start-date

A remuneration of EUR 1.366,-- gross per month for 38.5 hours per week. In addition to our company benefits, we offer flexible working conditions and work experience in a highly innovative environment.


At AIT diversity and inclusion are of great importance. This is why we strive to inspire women to join our teams in the field of technology. We welcome applications from women, who will be given preference in case of equal qualifications after taking into account all relevant facts and circumstances of all applications.


Please submit your application documents including your CV and cover letter online.
