Self-supervised Learning for Few-Shot Learning – Internship Position


Start date: Open

Location: Leoben

Job Type: Internship

Duration: 3-6 months, depending on the level of applicant’s proficiency on the asked qualifications.

Keywords: Self-supervised learning, Few-shot learning, Deep learning, PyTorch, Research


Job Description

We are looking for a highly motivated research intern to work on the development of novel self-supervised learning algorithms to improve few-shot learning. The intern will be responsible for conducting research on self-supervised learning techniques such as contrastive learning and generative models, and their applications to few-shot learning. The intern will also be responsible for implementing and evaluating these algorithms on benchmark datasets.


  • Conduct research on self-supervised learning techniques for few-shot learning.
  • Develop novel self-supervised learning algorithms and evaluate their performance on benchmark datasets.
  • Implement and fine-tune deep learning models for few-shot learning using self-supervised pre-training.
  • Collaborate with the research team to design and carry out experiments and analyze results.
  • Contribute to writing research papers and technical reports.


  • Currently pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science,
    Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics or related
  • Strong programming skills in Python and experience with deep learning frameworks such as PyTorch or TensorFlow.
  • Familiarity with self-supervised learning techniques such as contrastive learning and generative models.
  • Knowledge of few-shot learning and transfer learning is a plus.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and ability to work independently and collaboratively.
  • Good written and verbal communication skills in English.

Opportunities and Benefits of the Internship

This internship provides an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience in cutting-edge research on self-supervised learning for few-shot learning, working with a highly collaborative and supportive team. The intern will also have the opportunity to co-author research papers and technical reports, and participate in conferences and workshops.
