R&D Data Science Master internship



Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs in 5–10% of the population and is twice as common in women as in men. Although trauma exposure is the precipitating event for PTSD to develop, biological and psychosocial risk factors are increasingly viewed as predictors of symptom onset, severity and chronicity [1]. Post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms may start within one month of a traumatic event, but sometimes symptoms may not appear until years after the event [2,3]. These symptoms cause significant problems in social or work situations and in relationships. They can also interfere with your ability to go about your normal daily tasks. PTSD symptoms are generally grouped into four types: intrusive memories, avoidance, negative changes in thinking and mood, and changes in physical and emotional reactions. Symptoms can vary over time or vary from person to person.

There have been numerous studies of post-traumatic stress disorder in trauma victims, war

veterans, and residents of communities exposed to disaster [4-9].

In recent years, mental health disorders diagnosis systems have gained more attention from the machine learning community, with the main goal of assisting the clinicians for a better and more accurate diagnosis and prognosis. Please refer to our previous publications on AI for Mental Health and for psychiatry (

ResilEyes is a French Deeptech startup developing AI solutions for mental health and PTSD detection, aid to diagnosis, follow-up, assistance and therapy (

In this internship, we are interested in developing a deep learning-based approach for PTSD diagnosis and continuous monitoring.



We are seeking***TWO ***bright and highly motivated master students, who can work in the field of artificial intelligence. The project will develop innovative deep learning approaches for computer-aided diagnosis tools for Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) recognition and follow-up. Innovative deep learning-based approaches will be developed. More details about the project will be given during the interview for confidentiality reasons.

The selected candidate will have the chance to work in an interdisciplinary team. This internship can lead to a permanent or a PhD scholarship.


  • The candidate must be an M2 Master student or in 5th year of an engineering school.
  • Has done M1 in computer science, applied mathematics or electrical engineering, with a focus on machine learning.
  • Experience in Deep learning and data analysis.
  • Experience in signal and image processing.
  • Demonstrated record of high-performance programming skills in python.
  • Demonstrated analytical, verbal, and scientific writing skills in English.



Internship duration will be 6 months starting from January 2022 at an early date to start. The latest date to start the internship will be March/April 2022.

Location: Université Paris-Est Créteil, Laboratoire Images, Signaux et Systèmes Intelligents (LISSI), 122 rue Paul Armangot, 94400 Vitry sur Seine
