Impossible Sensing develops next-generation optical sensing applications for deployment and operation in the most extreme terrestrial and extraterrestrial environments. Through our cutting-edge adaptive technologies, we make sense of deep ocean, deep space and everywhere in between.

 

We strive to foster a creative, collaborative and inclusive work environment that combines the best minds with the most innovative optoelectronics and data analytic technologies.

 

We are always looking to connect with candidates interested in projects ranging from planetary exploration to deep ocean survey. Our team is proudly headquartered in St. Louis, MO.

INQUIRIES

IMS offers dynamic opportunities for exceptional interns to participate in meaningful and challenging work at our St. Louis headquarters. 

Internship terms are currently only offered to bachelor's degree or higher level students. Internship positions are offered during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. Although each session has a submission deadline, we are always accepting applications for future terms.

FALL 2020 OPPORTUNITIES

 

 

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

Project scope: Aid Impossible Sensing in developing basic user interfaces for instrument control that can be used for internal testing and/or be delivered to clients. UI should synchronize various hardware components (e.g. laser, detector), read out instrument telemetry data, and allow for basic user control of operational parameters. UI should be readily adaptable to control different Impossible instruments depending on the application.

 

Number of students: 1 

Student time commitment and duration: 10-15hrs/week; 1 semester 

 

Suggested deliverables: Functional UI that has been successfully tested using Impossible instruments. 

Pre-requisites: Junior or Senior; experience in UI development and/or hardware control; basic knowledge of interfacing with FPGA and MCU; basic understanding of communication interfaces (USB, Ethernet, RS-232, etc.); proficiency in scientific programming language (e.g. Python, MATLAB, etc.); preferably has lab or research experience

Submission deadline: 09/30/20

ELECTRONICS AND FIRMWARE DEVELOPMENT

Project scope: Aid Impossible Sensing in developing custom electronics (PCB’s) and firmware (C/C++ and VHDL/Verilog) for synchronized hardware control that can be used for internal testing and/or be delivered as part of an instrument to clients.  

 

Number of students: 1

Student time commitment and duration: 10-15hrs/week; 1 semester 

Suggested deliverables: Documented circuit, PCB, or other relevant electronics designs; successful demonstration and integration of electronics hardware and firmware into Impossible instruments. 

Pre-requisites: Junior or Senior; experience in circuit and PCB design and fabrication; firmware design and debugging experience; basic knowledge of interfacing with FPGA and MCU; basic understanding of communication interfaces (USB, Ethernet, RS-232, etc.); proficiency in scientific programming language (e.g. Python, MATLAB, etc.); preferably has lab or research experience
