Research Intern-Computer Architecture
Empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. That's what inspires us, drives our work and pushes us to challenge the status quo every day. At Microsoft, we also work to empower our employees, so they can achieve more. We believe we should each find meaning in our work and we ensure employees have the freedom and the reach to help make a difference in the world.

Microsoft Research provides a dynamic environment for research careers with a network of world-class research labs led by globally-recognized scientists and engineers. Our researchers and engineers pursue innovation in a range of scientific and technical disciplines, to help solve complex challenges in diverse fields, including computing, healthcare, economics, and the environment.

**Silicon System Futures:**

Researchers in the Silicon System Futures group are exploring new computing architectures to execute traditional and emerging algorithms more efficiently. The group explores new general-purpose instruction set architectures (ISA) and specialized solutions to reduce execution times while conserving energy. Hardware prototypes are built, along with simulation models, to validate and characterize the ideas. The research, tools, and embodiments are used in Microsoft datacenters, and also made open and accessible to the broader community


In this role, the intern will combine knowledge of computer architecture and program analysis to analyze and profile standard benchmarks and actual datacenter workloads. He/She will use this analysis to explore instruction-set and microarchitectural ideas for an explicit dataflow ISA. The intern will collaborate with researchers, engineers, and other interns, present findings, and contribute to a new exciting ISA.

At MSR, interns put inquiry and theory into practice. Alongside fellow doctoral candidates and some of the world's best researchers, interns learn, collaborate, and network for life. Interns not only advance their own careers, but they also contribute to exciting research and development strides.


**Required Qualifications**

+ Must be currently enrolled in a PhD program in Computer Science or a related STEM field.

+ Must have taken courses in computer architecture and compiler construction and have familiarity with LLVM.

+ Must have experience in program analysis.

**Preferred Qualifications**

+ Advanced courses in computer architecture and compiler construction, and a substantial program analysis project using LLVM.

+ Must be able to collaborate effectively with other researchers and product development teams.

+ Excellent interpersonal skills, cross-group and cross-culture collaboration.

+ Ability to think unconventionally to derive creative and innovative solutions.
