Microsoft Research India Opens Applications For Its Fellow Program

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.

Microsoft Research India announced that its Research Fellow Program is now accepting applications. The Research Fellows (RF) Program at Microsoft Research India (MSRI) exposes bright, young minds in India to world-class research and state-of-the-art in technology. The program prepares students for careers in research, engineering, as well as entrepreneurship. 

MSR India has some of the best researchers pushing the frontiers of computer science and technology. Research Fellows have contributed to all aspects of the research lifecycle, spanning ideation, implementation, evaluation, and deployment.

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

All you need to know about Graph Embeddings

Embeddings can be the subgroups of a group, similarly, in graph theory embedding of a graph can be considered as a representation of a graph on a surface, where points of that surface are made up of vertices and arcs are made up of edges

A beginner’s guide to Spatio-Temporal graph neural networks

Spatio-temporal graphs are made of static structures and time-varying features, and such information in a graph requires a neural network that can deal with time-varying features of the graph. Neural networks which are developed to deal with time-varying features of the graph can be considered as Spatio-temporal graph neural networks.
