2020 Internship Projects at IBM Research - Ireland     


2020 Internship Projects at IBM Research - Ireland - overview

The IBM Research lab in Dublin is looking for top MS and PhD students interested in all areas of research including: data mining and machine learning, AI, statistical modelling and optimisation, control and decision systems, social and semantic web, high performance computing, blockchain and quantum computing.

Our internship program provides students with a unique opportunity to experience the research environment here at IBM. The program is highly competitive, and is designed for top students who are interested in tackling challenging research problems. Many of our student interns have authored papers, filed patents, contributed to open source projects, and/or contributed to IBM products out of their sojourn with us.

At IBM Research - Ireland our open approach to research, coupled with the deep curiosity of our Researchers, creates breakthrough client focused outcomes in domains such as IoT/Digital Twin, AI Security, Privacy, Healthcare, Blockchain, Quantum and Cloud. Together, we define and test new technologies on real business problems, discovering new growth opportunities and contributing to the success of IBM platforms and solutions.

We operate under a collaborative environment involving IBM scientists, industries and universities.

We offer:

* A stimulating, cross-disciplinary environment in a leading research organisation

* Opportunities for a unique combination of scientific and industrial research into real-world problems

* Excellent ties to research groups worldwide

* Up-to-date infrastructure and resources

* The ability to take part in large-scale international research projects

Successful candidates must be current MS or PhD students and internship duration is for a minimum of 90 days. In submitting their applications, students should specify (in their cover letter) up to 3 projects of interest to them, selecting from the list below.
