Machine Learning Research internship at de Volkskrant, Het Parool, Trouw and Algemeen Dagblad

Great that you’re interested in doing your internship or thesis at DPG Media! We are always looking for problem solvers with a strong background in AI or machine learning. At DPG Media, we have news content from many different newspapers in Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark. We reach around 10 million people every day. On the data side, we have around 4000 journalists working on high-quality content and an event stream with more than 500 million events a day.

Our Amsterdam-based team (which is the team you would be a part of) consists of about nine engineers, scientists, and research interns. The team is responsible for personalising the news products across major Dutch and Belgian news titles (Volkskrant, AD, Trouw, Parool, HLN, De Morgen and many others) owned by DPG Media. We are both academically and engineering-wise a strong group with expertise (MSc/PhD, industry experience) in ML in general, recommender systems, and natural language processing.

You would be working on a research project that lies at the intersection of representation learning, NLP and recommender systems. We are keen on hearing your own ideas, so please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss them. Ideally, projects are 6 months or longer. We’d like it if the result of the internship is a paper published at a conference or workshop. 

If you’re interested, please let us know by sending an email to and with your CV and a short motivation. We have a (lightweight) application process to make sure we’re a good fit to each other.
