Our internships and how to apply

We invite you to apply for an internship if your research interests align with ours and are enthusiastic about the type of work we do. We will work closely with you to develop an internship project that is tailored to your interests. Our internships are three months long, with flexible start dates. We offer continuous support, feedback, and development opportunities as well as flexibility and freedom to decide how to complete project tasks. All interns are encouraged to present the results of their internships to the rest of Arm Research at the close of their internship.

Our interns tend to be students of master’s or PhD degrees in engineering and science; most commonly Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, or Physics, but we encourage applications from any field of study. An interest in research, especially in the areas we work on, is a plus. We will also consider your application if you are pursuing an undergraduate or bachelor's degree and have relevant project or work experience.

You will work alongside experienced researchers within a specific team and also the wider research group, doing real project tasks. We believe in developing talent for the future, so we seek to offer many of our interns a graduate position once they have finished their studies.

We are looking for creative and passionate people with the ability to communicate their ideas and research. Please provide a cover note with your application; include some information about what you are interested in and the kind of projects you would like to work on. If you have a clear idea about the work you want to do, include it in your letter. It is okay not to be 100% sure! Tell us about your studies and what you enjoy, and we will try to find the right fit for you.
