NEC Laboratories America, Inc.
Data Science and System Security Department

NEC Laboratories America, Inc. ( conducts research in support of NEC’s US and global business. Our lab has a broad research program that covers many areas and maintains a balance of fundamental and applied research.

The Data Science and System Security Department aim to build novel big data solutions and service platforms that simplify complex systems management and to develop new information technology that supports innovative applications, from big data analytics to the Internet of Things. Our research is both experimental and theoretical, covering many domains in data science and artificial intelligence, such as time series mining, graph mining, text mining, anomaly detection, signal processing, and streaming processing. The goal of our research is to fully understand the dynamics of big data from complex systems, retrieve patterns to profile them, and build innovative solutions to help end-user managing those systems. We have built a number of analytic engines and system solutions to process and analyze big data and support various applications in detection, prediction, and optimization. Our research leads to both award-winning NEC products and publications in top conferences.

Our group is looking for researchers to work in the areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning or data mining. The ideal candidates must have expertise in one of the above areas and can develop algorithms to analyze massive data and build innovative applications. S/he must have a PhD in CS/CE with a strong publication record in at least one of the following areas:

• Data Mining and Machine learning (especially deep neural networks)
• Time series analysis and prediction
• Text mining, natural language processing, and information retrieval
• Graph and information network mining
• Large scale optimization and learning
• Signal processing, image processing, and computer vision

NEC Labs is located in Princeton, NJ, home of Princeton University and one of New Jersey’s most beautiful and idyllic towns. The area offers many exciting cultural, entertainment and outdoor activities. The office is minutes away from Princeton University and an hour from New York, Philadelphia, and the Atlantic Ocean.
