Microsoft Research India Lab Internship Program
Microsoft Research India conducts world-class research in computer science and related areas. We present regularly at international conferences and publish in research journals; and we also work closely with Microsoft’s product groups to transfer research ideas into Microsoft products. Microsoft Research India currently has seven research groups engaged in fundamental and applied research, and one group that is charged with advanced development and prototyping of research ideas.
Internships in Microsoft Research India are either research internships or software-development internships. Research interns work with Microsoft Research's full-time researchers on research topics that often lead to research publications. Development interns work with researchers and software engineers to develop a prototype application that implements a research idea or on an independent software project.
Our goals for internships are two-fold:
- Interns help us conduct world-class research and thus impact Microsoft.
- Microsoft Research provides an environment where interns may experience an industrial research and development setting.

Intern Orientation and Mentoring
During the first week, you will participate in an intern orientation and learn about your internship, your team, and Microsoft in general. You will meet with your mentor, an advisor who will show you the ropes, give you advice, and help you get the most out of your internship.
Microsoft Research intern salaries are highly competitive and compare favorably with intern salaries in other companies.
