IBM Great Minds Student Internships 2015

Posted on Updated on

ibmstudentinternship

What is it?

The Great Minds initiative is a competition for 3 to 6-month internships at one of the IBM Research Labs in Zurich or Dublin for students from central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It provides students with the unique opportunity to work alongside world-class scientists in the leading industrial IT research organization.

The internships will take place in 2015. The exact starting time and duration will be agreed upon with the winning students individually, taking into account their academic commitments and the availability of IBM staff. IBM will pay the winners a lump sum towards travel expenses as well as compensation that covers adequately the cost of living in Switzerland or Ireland, respectively. IBM will also obtain the necessary visa and work permits for the successful candidates.

IBM Research is conducting the Great Minds internships for the seventh time. The experiences on both sides have been very positive. This program also benefits faculty members when the Great Minds winners bring back to their universities or departments a valuable understanding of real industry problems, knowledge of advanced IBM technologies, and contacts throughout IBM Research.
