The International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) is an equal opportunity employer and makes employment decisions on the basis of merit. The Institute is committed to having the best available persons in every job. To this end, ICSI prohibits discrimination based on race, color, creed, gender (including gender identity and gender expression), religion (all aspects of religious beliefs, observance or practice, including religious dress or grooming practices), marital status, registered domestic partner status, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition (including cancer or a record or history of cancer, and genetic characteristics), sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or related medical condition), genetic information, sexual orientation, military and veteran status, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state, or local laws. ICSI also prohibits discrimination based on the perception that anyone has any of those characteristics, or is associated with a person who has or is perceived as having any of those characteristics.
ICSI is a leading independent, nonprofit center for research in computer science.
Current areas of research include computer networking, speech and language processing, bioinformatics, brain networks, computer vision, audio and multimedia analysis, and artificial intelligence. Algorithm development--with application to genomics, video and speech processing, Internet routing and measurement, and machine learning--is one of ICSI's particular strengths.
Many of ICSI's scientists hold joint faculty appointments at UC Berkeley, teaching graduate and undergraduate courses and supervising students who pursue their doctoral thesis research at ICSI.
