Founded in 1972, The Information Sciences Institute (ISI) of the University of Southern California (USC) is a world leader in research and development of advanced information processing, computer and communications technologies. ISI is one of the nation’s largest, most successful university-affiliated research institutes. The Institute attracts nearly $60 million annually – from corporations and more than 20 federal government agencies – for basic and applied research. USC/ISI bridges the gap between theoretical basic research and product-oriented research and development. ISI’s diverse expertise ranges from core engineering and computer science discovery to design, modeling and implementation of innovative prototypes and devices. ISI's technical areas include
1) computational systems and technology such as adaptive parallel execution, fine-grained computing, wireless communications and networking, quantum computing, supercomputing and biomimetics;
2) advanced electronics for space and other purposes
3) intelligent systems such as natural language, machine translation and information integration;
4) informatics that include computer networks, medical informatics and decision systems.
A pacesetter for nearly 40 years, ISI helped conceive, design and implement the Internet, including communications protocols that remain fundamental to today's Internet operations. ISI developed the Domain Name System (DNS) and its now-familiar “.com” address system. ISI's MOSIS subsidiary has fabricated more than 50,000 low-cost, low-volume integrated circuits for customers worldwide. ISI is also the home of USC Lockheed Martin Quantum Computation Center.
The Institute employs about 350 engineers, research scientists, and staff. About half of our research staff holds Ph.D.s, with 50 serving as USC adjunct faculty. ISI offers many of the best features of two worlds: major research universities and corporate research-and-development labs. The result is an unusually flexible working environment in which information scientists can focus on the subjects that intrigue them most -- in roles designed to reflect individual career goals -- with internationally renowned colleagues from numerous, cutting-edge technology disciplines.
ISI is based in Marina del Rey, California, and maintains a satellite office in the Nation's capital area in Arlington, Virginia. ISI-Arlington plays a vital role in serving ISI's government customers. ISI-Arlington is also the home of ISI's Adaptive Parallel EXecution group, Fine-grained Computing Group, Wireless Systems Group, and Disruptive Electronics Group.

The Office of Administration Unpaid Student Internship Program is recruiting the nation’s best and brightest software engineering students to the Executive Office of the President, Office of Administration. Software Engineer Interns (SEIs) will work with the newly created Software Automation and Technology (SWAT) Team which is revolutionizing computer usage and business processes in the Executive Office of the President, including the White House. SWAT Team interns have a tremendous impact throughout the organization by providing expert software development and business process engineering services. It has been shown that relatively little software development upfront can save many task hours in the future, while also increasing accuracy and reducing errors in data. Many repetitive and time-consuming tasks can often be automated. Software engineers are able to create data design and formatting solutions to handle future needs and ever changing goals. The SWAT Team lends their expertise to Executive Office of the President offices and helps them automate tasks, streamline business processes, and optimally format data for future use.
