This position is for the IBM Research side of the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab. IBM Research is a community of over 3,000 people across 19 locations on six continents. We are the organic growth engine of IBM, grounded in the scientific method as we pioneer what’s next on the horizon for IBM and for the world.
The MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab is an academic-industry partnership focused on advancing fundamental AI research for real-world impact in business and society. We fund 50 active projects per year, each jointly executed by MIT faculty and IBM Research scientists publishing in the top peer-reviewed venues. We then work with IBM business units and member companies to bridge this scientific work to transformative domain applications.
Our membership program consists of seven deep relationships with global leaders across multiple industries: finance (Wells Fargo and Refinitiv), construction (Grupo ACS), consumer technology (Samsung), medical devices and diagnostics (Boston Scientific), transportation (Delta), and energy (Woodside). As we deepen these engagements and grow our membership further, we are looking for outstanding client engagement managers with a rare skillset: the ability to effectively traverse the worlds of Ph.D. scientists in research and business leaders in their respective domains.
