To be eligible for a student internship at IBM Research - Zurich, the following requirements must be met:
- excellent grade-point average
- strong command of English
- communication skills
- distinctive team spirit
- international orientation
We also employ a number of student interns every year for periods of at least three to six months. Talented, highly motivated students will have a chance to put their fresh ideas and energetic drive into action on high-level research projects. If you want to work on innovative technology with industry-leading researchers and have the opportunity to collaborate with other students from around the globe, then we may have a place for you.
In cases where universities allow or even require it, we also host undergraduate students for the duration of their Master's (Diplom) thesis, typically for a period of six months. These students work full-time on a project that fits in with our research objectives. We ensure that this work is acceptable to the university as a suitable undergraduate thesis topic.
Interested candidates with at least an intermediate degree (Vordiplom) are kindly asked to apply in accordance with our application procedure.
In cases where universities allow their students to pursue a doctorate degree in an industrial research setting, we offer students pre-doctoral positions, typically for a period of three years. Such students work 60% of their time on an IBM project while devoting the rest to background research and to writing their thesis. Their IBM project and the subject of their dissertation are closely related. The doctorate work is supervised jointly by a faculty member and a qualified researcher of IBM Research - Zurich.
We offer various projects to candidates with a PhD/doctorate degree. Such post-doc projects have a typical duration of 18 months.
