THE BELAMY

Sign up for your weekly dose of what's up in emerging technology.

Many MSR Research Fellows Alumni have either joined top PhD programs at universities such as MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, CMU; started companies such as Everwell, Capillary, and Ola or are working at Microsoft (India and US) in development positions.

Interested candidates should have completed BS/BE/BTech or MS/ME/MTech in Computer Science or related areas, graduating by summer 2022. We evaluate candidates based on a combination of factors including academic performance, raw smarts, development skills, and proven ability or aptitude for research and software development. Microsoft offers an inclusive work environment, and diversity is valued in its workforce.

Selected candidates spend up to two years at MSR India. Different roles require a different combination of skills. Current and past RFs have worked on: solving deep theoretical problems, pushing the boundaries of AI, designing new programming languages, fieldwork in rural India, prototyping communication and sensing hardware, optimizing database queries, and building software systems. Regardless, they all must consistently aim to create academic, industry and societal impact. 

The Deadline for applications is January 14, 2022. Offers extended to accepted candidates will be notified in March – April 2022, and Research Fellows start at MSR India in July 2022. You can apply with your resume and at least one letter of recommendation here; one must also fill out the Research Fellow Interest Form here
