Microsoft Research has more than 800 researchers worldwide, including some of the world’s finest computer scientists and computer engineers as well as mathematicians, physicists, biologists, linguists, sociologists, etc. working across more than 55 areas of research. To maintain strong relations with leading research institutions around the world, Microsoft Research offers internships to outstanding Ph.D. candidates whose research interests correspond to the research areas on which our scientists focus. Thus, research interns have the opportunity to collaborate directly with well-known scientists influencing cutting-edge research. Each intern joins a particular research group and is supervised by a researcher. For more information about our general internship program, visit Microsoft Research Internships.
Microsoft Research recently created a program to further strengthen relationships with Russian professors and graduate students that encourages Russian Ph.D. students to join our research community for 12 weeks as interns.
Russian Microsoft Research interns will join a global community of researchers. After completion of the internship, a student will return to academia abound with new ideas and networking opportunities. The student’s professors will have the opportunity to strengthen existing scientific relationships and to establish new ones.
Microsoft is not currently accepting applications for this program. The submission deadline was November 15, 2012.
