Research Intern – Autonomous Systems



Virtual Internship

Participation in the Research Internship Program requires that you are physically located in the United States or Canada for the duration of the internship.

Research Internships provide a dynamic environment for research careers with a network of world-class research labs led by globally-recognized scientists and engineers. Our researchers and engineers pursue innovation in a range of scientific and technical disciplines to help solve complex challenges in diverse fields, including computing, healthcare, economics, and the environment.

In the autonomous systems team, we are applying our best AI research and engineering capabilities to resolve challenging, real-world customer problems (e.g. Robotics, Optimization, Control, Anomaly detection, NLP, and/or Machine Vision, etc.). Our vision is to lead the autonomous systems tidal wave, empowering intelligence within drones, robots, industrial control systems, and more. Our cloud-based solution uses machine teaching and reinforcement learning techniques. If you are looking to work with a team that is on the cutting edge of AI and in a quickly growing market segment with the potential to be the next billion dollar business, this may be the opportunity you’re looking for.

During the internship, you will be leveraging the existing research in the relevant areas and solve a challenging research problem in the direction of automating RL agent training. If an opportunity to drive research and development in this space sounds exciting to you, we’d love to receive your application!


Interns put inquiry and theory into practice. Alongside fellow doctoral candidates and some of the world’s best researchers, interns learn, collaborate, and network for life. Interns not only advance their own careers, but they also contribute to exciting research and development strides. During the 12-week internship, students are paired with mentors and expected to collaborate with other interns and researchers, present findings, and contribute to the vibrant life of the community. Research internships are available in all areas of research and are offered year-round, though they typically begin in the summer.


In addition to the qualifications below, you’ll need to submit a minimum of two reference letters for this position. After you submit your application, a request for letters may be sent to your list of references on your behalf. Note that reference letters cannot be requested until after you have submitted your application, and furthermore, that they might not be automatically requested for all candidates. You may wish to alert your letter writers in advance, so they will be ready to submit your letter.

Required Qualifications

  • Must currently be a PhD/master candidate in mathematics, physics, computer science, or closely related fields.

Participation in the Research Internship Program requires that you are physically located in the United States or Canada for the duration of the internship.

Preferred Qualifications

  • You should have demonstrated a broad understanding of various approaches in reinforcement learning or machine learning with academic publications, demonstrated expertise in programming. and towards the same habe been noted for creativity and originality in research.
  • You should also be able to self-discipline and function well in physical isolation from collaborators, in light of the likely requirement that work will still be done remotely.
For example: I am very interested in the position at [company]. I believe my skills and work experience make me an ideal candidate for this role. I look forward to speaking with you soon about this position.
