The world is changing as we know it. It’s more important than ever that communications and entertainment services are available to users to connect wherever they may be. Here at Dolby, our mission is to enable experiences that transcend expectations and reach the spectacular. We need your creative solutions and diverse thought. The Dolby U internship program offers impactful, project-based work experience in a collaborative, creative environment where you work side by side with industry leaders.

Dolby Applied AI team is currently looking for a talented, self-motivated intern to push the state of the art in generative modeling and audio synthesis. As a candidate, we want you to have a clear understanding of deep learning architectures and techniques, so convolutional or recurrent networks are trivial concepts for you already, and you usually play around with more complex ideas and developments around generative models, e.g. Normalizing Flows, VAEs, GANs, and others. Additional experience with audio synthesis and neural vocoders will be highly valuable.


Participate in the development of new technologies in the area of speech and music, including:

  • Invent and design new algorithms, run experiments and demonstrate prototypes
  • Perform evaluations and compare with the state-of-the-art (possibly reimplementing some of those)
  • Communicate research progress and document results


  • Knowledge in deep learning and audio signal processing
  • PyTorch or Tensorflow
  • Good Python programming skills
  • Knowledge of generative models e.g. WaveNet, Flows, GAN, VAE a strong plus
  • Publication in a major machine learning or audio conference e.g. NeurIPS, ICLR, ICML, ICASSP, INTERSPEECH is also a strong plus



  • Working towards a Master’s or Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning or a related field; recent grads who are within 1 year of graduation are also eligible to apply
  • Must be available to work full-time Monday – Friday for 3 months between May/June 2021 – Aug/Sept 2021. Start dates for the internship are as follows: (*note* these dates are not flexible)
