Summer Internship with ACT

ACT (Accessible Computing Technology Research Group) is an interdisciplinary research group investigating the design of accessible social media. To meet the needs of diverse user groups, including older adults and individuals with disabilities, we creatively use and intermix novel technologies (such as digital pens) with more mainstream ones. We are looking for a highly motivated undergraduate intern to work with us on the design and development of new prototype technologies in this realm. There is the potential for this work to lead to a co-authored academic publication.

Candidates should have completed COMP 303. A willingness to experiment with 3rd party APIs and the ability to think creatively is necessary. Experience with user interface design, mobile development, and/or web programming (HTML/CSS/JavaScript) is an asset.

The work will take place in the McGill School of Information Studies (3661 Peel) under the supervision of Prof. Karyn Moffatt. We are looking for candidates for the summer term. The position is full-time, with compensation commensurate with experience.

To apply, please send a brief cover letter, and your resume to: karyn.moffatt@mcgill.ca.

All documents should be in pdf format. Please note that only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
