Being an Intern at MSR Montreal
During the 12-week internship, you will be supporting Microsoft with its mission of empowering every person to achieve more.
We don’t just value differences, we seek them out. We invite them in. We are a team of individuals at a truly global company who work to ensure our interns feel valued, respected, included, and encouraged.
There are great opportunities for you to build upon your skills and experience with us as you will have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from our world-leading research team who are dedicated and invested in helping you. You will be working on strategically important research areas that will shape and drive innovation within the AI space and be given intellectual freedom whilst working in a supportive environment.
Build valuable relationships
We offer multiple opportunities to connect, network, and build lasting relationships throughout the intern program through a variety of collaboration and networking events, workshops, and research talks. You will be an important part of a team, and your mentor is dedicated to ensuring you to get the best out of your internship and will take the time to help you and discuss your ideas.
“Getting to interact with Yoshua Bengio about the project was the highlight of the internship”.
We hold a number of events and activities during the summer to enable you to get to know others and try something new while enjoying what MSR Montreal has to offer.
“I attended meditation sessions, a cocktail class, a tri-lab speed networking event, all were great fun.”
“Receiving little packages in the mail with supplies for the events brightened my days during the lockdown in a way that I didn’t expect and truly appreciated.”
Competitive pay and the opportunity to build your career with Microsoft
We offer a competitive salary and an accommodation allowance. Many of our interns have gone on to get full-time positions here or at other Microsoft locations. Our internships are exclusively offered to PhD students.
