CS Research Lab Job?

  1. Jul 18, 2005 #1
    Hey guys,

    I'm in Computer Science and was interested in trying out working at a lab (and actually doing programming work). I was wondering where I could find such a job at these days? I'm pretty sure my university only hires grad students for that kind of work if anything. I will be a junior in the fall and am looking for a job like this for the next summer.

    Thanks for any help.

    any prof who does 3D or num sims usu looks for undergrads ...the greatest guinea pigs.
    My prof used a eleceng student to enhance his 3D virtual reality environment. while a sfwr eng friend worked to develop a system for a psych chair prof. Even physics proffs look for undergrads to work for them(usually for a undergrad tehsis proj)
    as for getting paid...don't know they might, my friend was making 20CDN/hr and that eleceng was prolly making 10.

    I've had to spend soo much time programming, that I wasted just about all of last year. I would have killed for an expereinced programmer. Do you know about GPIB interface and comm with instruments? I'm sure you could find something.

    Nope not familiar. Can you tell me what it is?

    Googling can tell you a whole lot more than me. Keywords: GPIB, IEEE 488, IEEE 488.2 and ni.com has some good info.
