American Physical Society/IBM Research Internships for Undergraduate Women and Under-Represented Minorities

IBM hosts paid summer internships at three IBM research locations: Almaden (San Jose, CA), Austin, TX, or Watson (Yorktown Heights, NY). These internship experiences provide students with the opportunity to work closely with an IBM mentor and work on research projects that match their skills and interests as well as the ongoing research programs of the laboratory. The Almaden and Watson lab have a full range of research, and the Austin lab focuses on software and systems.

Internships typically last 10 weeks, and the start and end dates are chosen so as not to conflict with the student’s school schedule. Assistance in securing housing will be provided.
