Doing a research internship
Are you a student wanting to do an internship in a research team? Each year Inria welcomes young people who are interested in computer science and want to learn about research and its impacts in this field.
To do an internship at Inria, you need, first of all, to have an interest in computer science. The internships Inria offers allow students to immerse themselves in the world of research, in direct contact with researchers. The student learns not only about the institute's scientific activities, but also about how research works, how the institute fits in to the international research community and what impact its research has on social developments.
Inria's research teams welcome interns from Masters programmes (or the equivalent) or from engineering schools.
To find out what internships are on offer, you can identifythe research teams whose activities are within the scope of your course, then contact the head of the project-team you are interested in directly to see whether an internship is available. You can also check the team's website or the sites of Inria's research centres for advertisements.
Inria has also set up a specific programme to welcome international students. This Internships programme, set up in partnership with a number of foreign universities, aims to attract the most able students from these universities as interns in our research teams. Students can do their internship as an end-of-course project, during their Masters, or during their PhD. The "Internships" programme is a first step, allowing foreign students to find out about the institute and about computer science research. It also opens up the possibility of pursuing a PhD thesis or post-doctoral research at Inria.
